Daren Keegan (Dip.Counselling) MBACP
Sometimes through life's journey it's easy to get lost in our own thoughts, feelings and emotions. When working with Client's I provide a safe, empathetic, confidential and non judgmental environment which provides the space, time and support to enable Clients to find the answers they are looking for to be able to achieve clarity, direction and self-empowerment.
There can be many areas of distress that can hold Clients back whether it be a temporary blip or a long standing issue from the past. Through reflective learning and exploration, I have helped many Clients explore skills sets and to build on confidence and self healing to effectively move forward.
I have experience working with Clients of all ages and backgrounds (12-90) and worked in particular with Clients with depression, anxiety, those going through a bereavement, relationships, family issues, understanding sexuality, the autism spectrum, and Clients with learning difficulties.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and adhere to and work by the ethical framework.
I offer sessions from either a beautiful relaxed setting beside the river chess which is at one with nature. During warmer conditions Clients will have the option of having a session directly beside the river or within my Counselling room. Alternatively I offer sessions within Central Windsor.
I offer sessions in person and also via Skype and offer online based services.

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
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have also worked with Clients experiencing the early stages of Dementia. The space and time to express themselves and explore what can be a very confusing time has been very rewarding to Clients experiencing this condition and their family members.
My fee will be variable depending on the location but my standard fee is £40 per hour. My initial session with be charged at a reduced rate of £25.
As a Person Centred Counsellor , the most important aspect of working with you would be our working relationship, so I would suggest either a Consultation session or a phone call to ensure we both feel we can work effectively towards meeting your needs.
