Cindy Delport MBACP (Accred)
Having a confidential space to talk, a space just for you, can begin you on the path to making positive changes and becoming more self-aware and accepting.
I understand that experiences, past and present, can impact on your wellbeing. My aim is to provide a supportive environment in which you can feel safe enough to work through difficult issues. I offer a warm and respectful relationship that allows you to explore new or different ways of being in relationship and of living your life.
Some of the areas I have experience of and can support you with include: anxiety, relationship difficulties, depression, panic, loss and bereavement, abuse, low self-esteem, anger, work or study stress, low self-confidence, trauma, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, questioning sexuality and gender, and domestic violence.
I work with adults and young people (16 years +), in weekly 50-minute sessions, for both short- (6-12 weeks) and long-term.
I have rooms in Surbiton, a few minutes walk from the station, and can offer evening appointments. I also offer online counselling, via video call, and telephone counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have several years' experience working as a counsellor, both in a GP surgery and in private practice.
I'm a trainer and group facilitator on counselling certificate and degree courses, as well as a specialist mentor to university students with mental health conditions. I'm also a clinical supervisor, supervising the client work of both trainee and qualified counsellors.
I have a BA Hons in Integrative-Relational Counselling, and have done further training in working with trauma, group therapy, mindfulness, working with autism and personality disorders.
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.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
