Denise Pia PgDip MBACP (accred)
I am a BACP registered counsellor and offer short term and long term, one-to-one counselling. I provide you with a safe, confidential, empathic and supportive space to explore what is troubling you.
What Counselling do I offer
The counselling I offer is Psychosynthesis, which is a talking therapy .It is a sensitive, powerful and depth therapy . It takes an holistic approach, recognising the roles of the mind, body, feelings and spirituality in the process of personal growth.
How Counselling can help
Psychosynthesis looks forward, as well as back into your life experiences and helps you to understand the meaning of present patterns and situations which are no longer serving you. It helps to improve the relationship and connection with yourself and others. It can help to make sense of loss or prolonged grief, help with anxiety and depression , feeling sad, work, or any of life’s issues. It helps you to understand who you are and how to value and nourish yourself with the potential for self knowledge, healing and change.
How I work
Through talking, we have the space to look at what is troubling you and I can offer a different perspective. Where appropriate, I use techniques such as meditation, drawing and visualisations so that the unconscious will become more conscious. This awareness will help you to move forward with greater choice and purpose.
Please either call, or email me, to find a convenient date and time for an initial consultation. This initial meeting gives you a chance to tell me what you want from counselling. If you are happy to continue, we will set up a regular weekly session.

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.
