Hanna Wikström (BA Hons, MPhil, Dip. Counselling, MBACP)
As a counsellor, I want to help people feel better - about themselves, their relationships, or their lives in general. Whether you are new to counselling or have had therapy in the past, I believe in counselling’s power to support people in working through their thoughts and feelings, and discovering a way forward.
I believe that every person has the resources to find their own answers, and I work in a way that aims to provide you, the client, the space to find those answers. I hope to support you in exploring your feelings about things such as:
- Low mood
- Self-esteem issues
- Confidence issues
- Loss or bereavement
- Relationship difficulties
- Life changes (e.g. a new job or relocation)
This list is not exhaustive, and I will do my best to help you explore anything you wish to talk about in our sessions. I work mostly with adults, but also have experience with young adults/teenagers from 16 years and up. I currently don't work with children or teenagers under 16 years of age.
Please visit my website to learn more about how I work, or get in touch via email or phone 07958652545 and I will do my best to answer any questions you might have.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Level 4 Diploma in Counselling Skills, and have completed additional courses on topics such as anxiety and depression, eating disorders, and self harm and suicide. I have worked mainly with adult clients in private practice as well as in a GP setting.
In addition to my counselling qualifications, I hold a degree in English and German from Warwick University, and an MPhil from the University of Cambridge. I speak Swedish and English and have a good understanding of German.
Originally from Sweden, I spent my childhood and early adulthood living in several European countries, before settling in Cambridge over 10 years ago.
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
I currently have mainly day appointments available, with limited late afternoon and evening sessions available.
