John Goss MNCS (Accred)
I offer one to one and couples counselling in Milton Keynes (MK3 and MK9). I am also able to offer counselling via video calling (Zoom) for individuals, regardless of where you are in the UK.
To help you find the information you might be looking for, I have listed information in the following way:
- Individual Face to Face Counselling
- Couples Counselling
- Online (Zoom) Counselling
Individual Face to Face Counselling
I offer one to one face Counselling in both MK3 and MK9.
This option is for those who prefer to meet in person, to discuss and explore what's bothering you, in a non judgemental and confidential way.
I currently offer a limited number of spaces for couples in MK3.
While the principles of confidentiality and non judgement remain the same, Couples counselling can be beneficial where couples want to explore something jointly, as a means of finding a way forward.
Online (Zoom) Counselling
I offer video appointments via the Zoom platform. This is currently only for those seeking one to one sessions. Zoom sessions can offer more flexibility, as you can decide where you want to be for the session, doing it from the comfort of your own home, if you choose to. Zoom also offers the flexibility of making an appointment with me, even if you don't live in the Milton Keynes area.
You can make contact by Phone, email or Facebook. All contact methods are below.

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.
