Dr George Shand
Counsellor and Psychotherapist
MBACP, Partner at ‘The Practice’
As a qualified counsellor I will tailor your therapy to meet your own individual needs. I am trained in person-centred counselling and will help you to expand your self-awareness so that you can have more control over your life, thoughts and feelings. In so doing you will be able to explore your true self and maximise your mental and physical well-being.
At the heart of my approach is the development of a warm counselling relationship which provides a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space in which you can explore any difficulties you may be having. Therapy may be over the short-term or long-term depending what you feel is most appropriate for you.

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.
