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. For in person counselling, I am based in a consulting room in East Finchley.

I offer both short-term and open-ended counselling.

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

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

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

I have previously worked at a counselling charity 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

BACP

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.
