JOHN COSTELLO MBACP - ONLINE/FACE TO FACE
Are you feeling you need help with problems causing you stress and anxiety? Do you feel alone with the circumstances in which you are feeling depressed? Are you having panic attacks; employment related stress; feeling sad; trying to work through the experience of a bereavement?
I am able to assist those who find themselves in such situations.
I can have both evening and daytime availability. I work sensitively and with compassion and kindness providing short and long term counselling in a confidential setting.
** NOTE - I am available Online and also Face to Face at locations in Dagenham RM8 and Harold Wood, Romford RM3 - fully Covid-19 compliant with current government regulations
I have over 20 years of experience helping people with a range of issues including:
- drug & alcohol dependency
- employment related stress.
How can counselling help?
Talking things through with a professional, and someone who has been in therapy is often beneficial to make sense of what is going on and how one feels. Whilst operating mainly in a person centred manner, I also work with techniques from CBT, Solution Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing where this can be worthwhile for clients.
In addition to this, I offer assistance to relieve employment related stress, and anxiety within the role of carer.
I welcome you to call me on: 07511242198 or click here to send me an email.

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

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).
