Daliah Slater BA Hons, Adv Dip, MBACP Accredited
As a trained psychodynamic counsellor, I offer a safe non-judgmental and confidential environment, where you can feel comfortable and at ease in expressing and exploring your feelings. We would work together to make sense of your emotions, and with reflection, work out the best path to move forward. I work with a wide range of issues from anxiety, depression and life events such as bereavement, abuse, betrayal, family or relationship issues.
I have extensive experience of working with people from different sexual orientations, social and cultural backgrounds. I understand that you may be feeling anxious, a lack of connection, have a sense of loss or just feel stuck. You may even feel disconcerted or ill at ease, and cannot understand why or who to turn to. Coming to counselling may feel daunting, but actually is a sign of strength, and is often the first brave step towards finding a stronger sense of self and inner peace.
I appreciate that each person is completely individual, and so will find the most appropriate approach that considers your particular life circumstances. My aim is to listen carefully to your feelings and tailor the approach and work at a pace that makes sense for you. For instance, it may be that you need either short term or long term talking therapy, or simply require some CBT or Mindfulness to help provide some coping mechanisms.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an accredited and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their Code of Ethics. I also hold a Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling, as well as a BA Hons in Psychology and Social Studies.
In addition to my private practice, I have worked for over 11 years with different organisations, including Broxbourne Counselling Centre, and No Panic as a volunteer counsellor and group mentor.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
