—————————————————————————————-

I am a qualified counsellor working form the tranquil environment of Imagine Wellbeing Clinic based in the David Lloyd Heath Club in Milton Keynes.

Prior to this I worked for 20 years as a Film Director and also as Chairman of a premier league sporting club during which time I achieved a deep understanding of how the challenges we face in the business world can build up pressure and stress that impact both your life and the lives of those around you.

I also gained an insight of the difficulties involved whilst balancing a full-time job and fufilling family commitments.

I am a member of and work within the ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy from the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists (BACP). A copy can be found on their web-site: http://www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework/.

I also work with MIND (Mental Health Charity) based in Milton Keynes and enjoy helping people makes sense of their lives and empower them to move forward.

Please give me a call or send an email and I will be happy to arrange an initial free consultation where we can discuss ways I could help or support you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
