Dee Albert, Counsellor, Psychotherapist (Dip, MBACP, MSc)
I am a qualified Psychotherpist offering both long term and short term therapy. I am passionate about supporting you to look at life from a renewed space, enabling you to move towards positive change. Having the time and space to share these thoughts and feeling can give you the lift you need to step forward in life.
My approach to our work together will encompass my many life experiences, which includes the challenges and joys of growing up in a culturally diverse community, as a parent of two, a wife and an entrepreneur. I have also worked extensively with young people. These experiences interweave and influence my unique approach to therapy.
I have experience in working with a range of concerns including:
- Bereavement & Loss
- Confidence & Self Esteem
- Identity & Sexuality
- Postnatal depressions & Bonding difficulties
- Personal & Cultural Diversity
- Relationship concerns
- Conflict resolution
My area of interests are personal and cultural identity challenges and concerns, post traumatic stress, life transition (new job, moving in or out of a relationship, new parent etc.)
I will respect your views and support you to understanding what is going on for you. A common fear is that the process is painful and uncomfortable; however as we continue to work together you should gradually start to feel better and will find that your session can be enjoyable!
I pride myself on being creative and providing a personal therapeutic experience for each client.

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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
