About me

My name is Denise Oliver-Morgan. I am a BACP registered Counsellor and Therapist and work privately in London. I first began working privately with clients in 2001, I have worked with a very extensive number of problems which people can experience in life.

I have worked in a number of settings, I undertook my training hours and held a practice with London Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I have also worked in a school based setting working with young people aged 11-18.

I currently run a part-time private practice on Saturdays near London Bridge and Borough Market, where I see clients from a number of backgrounds for individual and couples counselling, with a wide range of problems which includes anxiety, depression, relationship problems, self confidence issues, identity issues, self harm, abuse, anger, stress.

To discover if I can provide you with an avenue to explore your presenting problems, you can contact me via email or telephone to arrange an initial consultation, following this we can discuss whether talking therapy is the route you wish to pursue. Either option is private and confidential and only monitored by myself.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a trained intercultural counsellor and therapist. I draw from various types of therapy to incorporate into my work. I feel that it is important to match the therapy orientation to the person, which is why I feel being able to use a range of therapy theories enables the opportunity for this to occur rather than trying to fit a person to one type of therapy. The relationship between therapist and client is just as important and the ability to connect with someone you feel comfortable with is of great importance to the progression of the work.

I hold an Advanced Therapeutic Diploma in Intercultural Therapeutic Counselling. I am also a BACP registered Counsellor and Therapist. I continue to attend courses, seminars and workshops to continue my own self development and to maintain current links with this ever changing industr.

When you initially make contact we arrange a time to carry out an initial session to meet and discuss your presenting issue, if you feel comfortable we then arrange when we will meet for a further 5 sessions. I ask that you commit to this as it usually takes this time to see how you feel about therapy and you being to put thoughts into the information you are discussing as well as sometimes identifying what is going on for you.

I have been working in private practice since 2001 and have had extensive and various experience in working with many individuals focusing on a number of life difficulties and enabling them to work through these and enabling them to have more positive outcomes in their lives. I believe the journey is a shared process.

Some clients have stayed for long periods of time, some have only continued for a few months, sometimes clients feel they want to attend in blocks of a few months have a break, then return. I work with individuals to enable them through their difficulties so they are able to move forward without the intervention of therapy, but strongly acknowledgbig that each person's needs are individual them and that is the driving force of our journey together.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
