Hello, my name is Dominic and I offer a calm, supportive and confidential space for you to talk about any challenges or difficult feelings you may be experiencing. I am here to listen to you, and to help you understand what is going on for you at the moment. Bottling up thoughts and feelings can affect the way we feel and relate to those around us, and talking to a trained listener can be immensely helpful in addressing these issues and starting to feel better.
I can help with difficulties such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship problems or other such issues that affect a lot of people over the course of their lives. I will not tell you what to do, but will support you if you decide you would like to make changes in your life.
I am currently able to offer outdoor walking therapy sessions in Greenwich Park, and online therapy. If you feel that counselling could help you then do get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We can arrange a first session for you to talk about what has brought you to counselling, and experience a session with me. If you decide you would like to proceed we would then book you in for a weekly 50 minute slot. The sessions would then continue for as long as you find them necessary and useful.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and hold a Higher Professional Diploma in Counselling (with Distinction).
As well as working in private practice I also have experience of counselling adults and young people in various organisations and charities. I have supervised other counsellors at Cruse Bereavement Care and also have experience of running therapeutic workshops for young people at Body and Soul, a charity helping those affected by childhood adversity. I also manage a low-cost counselling service in West Norwood. Before qualifying as a Counsellor I worked in various roles in Central Government. I then moved into the charity sector following positive experiences of both counselling and volunteering.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer walking therapy in Greenwich Park, and also online counselling via Zoom. Due to Covid restrictions I am currently unable to work out of my counselling room close to Greenwich Station.
