About me

Hello, I'm Frederica, I am an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, which means that I draw on a number of counselling approaches, within the humanistic field, depending on what is appropriate for you.  I offer a safe, welcoming and non-judgemental environment in which you can explore difficult emotions and experiences at your own pace, in confidence. 

Sharing and talking about our problems with another person is the oldest form of medicine; it can help us feel acknowledged and heard. I believe that we are the experts of our own life as we are the only ones that have lived it. Feeling genuinely heard, and being treated as an equal and unique individual throughout the psychotherapy process, creates an environment where acceptance and positive change can grow. 

I offer short-term and long-term psycho-therapeutic counselling depending upon what you would like to achieve. 

It is important to find the right therapist for you, so I am happy to offer a free consultation with no obligation to continue. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and abide by their ethical framework.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
