Eileen Whaymand (MBACP) The Counselling Connexion
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 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.
