Elizabeth Bennett RegMBACP BA (Hons) Integrative Relational Counselling
Counselling is a talking process to enable you to speak about the difficulties in your life and discover ways to manage and reduce them. I provide a safe, professional, confidential and non-judge-mental space for you to feel at ease and explore contributing events in your life.
My counselling approach is informed by an Integrative – Relational modal. This approach places emphasis on the professional relationship between myself and yourself to enable trust and change to evolve. I draw from various modalities including Psychodynamic, Person Centered and Humanistic depending on your individual needs.
Counselling can be very daunting especially if this is your first time. We will have an initial assessment to talk about the problems/issues affecting you and see if this works for you. There is no pressure to commit to counselling at this stage.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a BA (Hons) Degree in Integrative - Relational Counselling from Kingston College/ Middlesex University. I have a private practice in Surbiton which offers affordable counselling for individuals age 16 years and above.
I trained as a counsellor in a GP surgery for two years and Release Counselling/ YMCA for three and a half years. I worked with such issues as addiction, depression, domestic violence, anxiety, trauma (sexual, physical and emotional), anger management and homelessness.
I am a member of BACP, adhering to their code of ethics and my work is regularly supervised by an Accredited Counsellor.
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.
