About me

Hello my name is Cindy Afflick I trained as an integrative Intercultural Counsellor.  Since qualification in 2006 I have developed a wealth of knowledge and experience in various therapeutic environments, for example, GP surgeries, Victim Support Agency and Mainstream Secondary Schools.   I have also established my own private practice in south London.

I work with a diverse range of client and with a broad range of issues.  I use different therapeutic techniques and tools to explore topics expressed and experienced by my clients.

Every person is unique, regardless of age, gender, religious, racial, sexual, disability, identity, cultural or social background. There are a range of themes and complexities that can be explored in sessions.  I tailor my work to suit the situation and circumstances of the client.

Getting Started

The first step clients can take is to send me an email or telephone (details below) to arrange a initial assessment session.  This would be a time where clients can ask questions and talk about what problem they would like to explore.  The assessment session also gives clients a chance to voice any concerns and see if they want to work with me.   If clients feel happy to continue we can then arrange a second session to meet on a weekly bases.

We all have obstacles that we need to deal with but we don’t allow our selves the time to step back and address.   Whether the problem stems from our past or our present day experiences it is important to be in a safe environment my role is to create a safe environment for the client to explore their issues.

How can I help?

In our time together I facilitate and support the client’s wellbeing in a mindful way. I provide a friendly and warm space for the dialog clients want to have with me.  Whether the need is to just process their issues, gain clarity or find solutions, I help assist clients to construct techniques to meet their challenges.

A little more about me

I have worked in community Arts with different types of community groups in the UK and abroad using drama techniques to explore themes and role play.    In the past have worked as a Television Studio Operator, Camara Operator. Community Liaison Officer and Youth worker.

I have a working knowledge of mental health issues and volunteer with a charity that supports people with learning disabilities and mental health needs. I have created and provided drama workshops on self esteem for people with lived experiences. I also befriend with NHS Slam.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
