Hello, I'm Fraser. I'm a friendly counsellor. If you need someone to talk to because life is getting a bit much, I'd be delighted to see you.
I'm equally at home talking face-to-face - I have a room in Falmouth - or over Zoom/Skype and on the phone.
You can bring anything that is troubling you. I offer person-centred therapy, which means you’re the expert in your own life. If there are problems, we can find the solutions together.
I have experience of dealing with some very difficult topics - from early sexual violence to suicidal thoughts, anxiety and depression and crisis management.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a level 5 diploma in Person Centred Counselling and I’m a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
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
If you have particular communication needs - due to learning difficulties, disability or neurodiversity, for example - I am happy to work with you to establish the most effective and comfortable way to communicate.
