Hello and welcome to my Counselling Directory page My name is Eileen Whaymand
And I am an experienced qualified Person Centred counsellor offering confidential counselling in Stevenage and surrounding areas.
Approaching a counsellor can feel a daunting prospect, but I believe that when you do it is the relationship and joint endeavour between you and your chosen counsellor that can help you to gain clarity and perspective around any difficulties you may be experiencing at any given time
Based on this I believe finding the right person to work with is a very important step in your counselling I therefore offer a free initial meeting of about 30 to 40 minutes to give us the opportunity to see if we feel happy to work together
I am a member of the BACP ( The British association for counselling and psychotherapy) and am bound by and work to their ethical guidelines for good practise in counselling an psychotherapy.
This is to ensure that I am working safely and ethically with you the client
Counselling takes place from my home on Shephall Green In Stevenage
My Counselling room is situated within my garden in a building completely separate from my house this ensures total privacy
Clients are welcome to park on the drive and there is normally parking available within the street.

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
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).
