Cordelia Ghansah Dip.Couns, Registered MBACP
Are you struggling with stress, anxiety, depression and relationship problems? My private practice is a five minute walking distance from Queens Park Station. I have worked with a wide range of clients and issues since 2013. I offer you the opportunity to feel supported, to explore and understand what is creating your difficulty and help you find ways of coping.
I work in an integrative way which means I use a wide range of approaches tailored to your needs and the nature of the material you bring to therapy.
I provide private weekly sessions once a week for 50 minutes in the evenings only and offer one free initial 20 minute telephone consultation, an informal discussion to evaluate how I can help you. You can refer yourself for counselling by telephoning the number above or sending an email.

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.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Please contact me for session rates. I offer discounts and concessions for student trainee counsellors.
To get started with counselling, call or email me to set up an initial session. You will be offered a telephone assessment which will give you the opportunity to speak to me about some of your concerns and ask any question you may have about how counselling may help.
If you are happy to continue, we will agree a regular time and day to meet for counselling sessions, which will usually be on a weekly basis, for 50 minutes.
