About me

There can be many reasons to look for support in dealing with the ups and downs of life. I provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential counselling space so that you have a place to bring your feelings and problems and where you can be heard. Together we can explore your past experiences to better understand how these may be impacting your current patterns of behaviours. Exploring underlying issues which may be contributing to how you're feeling can help you to re-discover what gives your life meaning.

I offer online, telephone and in person counselling. 

I provide both short-term and open-ended counselling. I also provide single-session therapy.

If you would like to know more or arrange a consultation session, you can phone or text me on 07533 260346 or email me. You can also visit my website for further details: www.dianeswantontherapy.com

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling, which is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I am an accredited member of the BACP, and I fully comply with the professional standards and ethics set out in the BACP Ethical Framework.

I hold a Masters degree in Psychology.

I have previously worked at counselling charities and as part of the counselling service for an adult education college in central London.

I have worked with people who have experienced issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, sexual abuse, long-term physical health conditions, bereavement, eating difficulties, self-harm, and suicidal thoughts and feelings.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

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.

Accredited register membership
