About me

Hi, my name is Jay Warcup and I am a BACP-registered counsellor.

I aim to offer a safe, non-judgmental, confidential space where you can explore and gain insight into the concerns that have prompted you to consider therapy as something that might help you. I have experience working with a wide range of psychological and emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, loss, childhood trauma and relationship issues.

How I work 

It is my belief that we are all doing the best we can in our present circumstances, however our coping mechanisms may no longer be helping in the context of our current difficulties. By understanding how these patterns can both help and hurt us my approach to therapy aims to provide a relationship that allows relief from the maladaptive patterns that are causing such pain and distress. 

I bring together all the different aspects of my training and experience to find the best way of working with each individual or couple. I believe that a different therapy must be constructed for each person because each of us has a unique story. In doing so I hope to cultivate a greater understanding and awareness which can offer the possibility of living a more fulfilled life, both within yourself and in relation to others.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Diploma In Transactional Analysis Psychotherapeutic Counselling, Metanoia Institute
  • I am working towards an MSc in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy  
  • I offer short and long-term counselling as well as couples counselling

Member organisations


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.
