About me

Hello,

Thank you for viewing my information.

I provide an evening and weekend online, email or telephone counselling service. I use an integrative / pluralistic form of counselling. This means my focus is upon collaboration and finding what is right for you in terms of therapy. This is enabled through forming a therapeutic relationship based on trust, warmth, respect, empathy and unconditional positive regard. The therapeutic relationship provides a safe therapeutic space for you to talk about, understand and find helpful ways to move forward in your life.

I have worked in the field of mental health for over ten years supporting people to recover and find new meaning in their lives. I have a Masters degree in integrative counselling and I have been counselling since 2008. I'm also a registered mental health nurse with extensive clinical experience and a university lecturer in mental health.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Hamish

Member organisations

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.

Accessibility

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.
