About me

Thank you for looking at my profile, and well done in taking the first step towards therapy, which in itself can be a daunting thing to do. I would like to take the opportunity to tell you a little about me and how I work:

I am fully Qualified and a registered member of the BACP. I am trained in person centred counselling, online and telephone counselling. I offer a safe and confidential environment where we can explore your difficulties at the speed you want to go at.

I have experience in working with clients with depression, feeling sad, anxiety and have worked in agencies including MIND and I have previous experience in other industries and working with people and teams.

To begin with, please call me on 07395 905 478 or email me at iandeslowcounselling@outlook.com I will talk through how I work as a counsellor, and what you would like to get out of counselling, and we can arrange a first session.

I can offer an open-ended service, or if required shorter term work. During the pandemic I am offering online (Zoom or Skype) and phone counselling.

I work in Walderslade, just outside Chatham, Kent with good transport links, and parking

Training, qualifications & experience

  • I am trained to CPCAB Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.
  • I am fully Qualified and a registered member of the BACP.
  • Trained in Online and Telephone therapy

Member organisations


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.

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.
