Jonathan Shepheard - Counsellor MBACP, PGDip
Counselling and therapy for young adults (18+) and professionals.
I support people to move beyond anxiety to freedom helping them feel safe and understood.
Having had a career in business to business sales and account management for 20 years I choose to use my experience to support those that may be going through something similar.
How counselling can help
It may be that you wish to make sense of a troubling situation or would just like someone to talk with in confidence about a problem that hasn't yet been resolved.
My experience has been working with people dealing with anxiety, and or low mood, those looking to find out more about themselves and people wanting to move through difficulties in relationships.
I suggest a 10 minute no obligation initial phone consultation before arranging a session to meet to answer any questions that you may have and to listen to how things are for you right now. Please email or leave a voicemail to arrange. I welcome your call.
What to expect in your first session
Our first session is a chance for us to get to know each other and decide if we would like to work together. I will ask questions to find out about what you would like to bring to therapy, a bit about your background and what changes you would like to make in your life.
Training, qualifications & experience
Post graduate diploma in Psychosynthesis counselling
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.

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).
