Dr Eileen Ward
I am a motivated chartered counselling psychologist who offers a confidential, judgment-free environment where individuals can process their thoughts and feelings. Whatever the cause of your current position (divorce, grief, stress, depression, anxiety or relationship problems), talking therapy can help.
I have more than 20 years experience in helping others develop emotional intelligence, mental wellbeing and resilience. Using an integrative approach, I draw on a range of therapeutic models to meet your needs and match your pace.
Working with a person centre approach, I regularly use Cognitive behavioural therapy, Compassion focused therapy, Acceptance & commitment therapy, Solution-focused therapy, Psychodynamic and systemic theories.
I have helped clients with a wide range of complex psychological needs within the NHS and private practice. I offer both short and long term therapy to individuals and couples.
My earlier career in business coaching is useful when supporting others dealing with work-related stresses and personal development.
Research indicates that the therapeutic relationship is an important element of therapy, therefore your choice of therapist is a significant part of the process. If you are unsure or feel apprehensive about starting therapy, you are welcome to call for a free telephone consultation before making your selection.

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. 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.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
