Jonathan Trubshaw MBACP (Accred) BA (Hons) Counselling
What do you want to change today? Sometimes that is not so easy to say, you just know that you don't feel right and you want to do something about it. I support people through changes and challenges in their lives; therapeutically untangling the early decisions that form the path of current limiting thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
My work is based on Transactional Analysis and addresses people’s reinforcing beliefs and behaviours. Together we jointly understand how you perceive your situation, what you want to change and what is holding you back. Letting go of things learnt very early on in life can be scary. It can also be very liberating.
Counselling helps you challenge familiar phrases like, “That’s what always happens to me” or “That’s just the person I am” or “I have always felt like that”. Reframing, changing the meaning given to events, not necessarily the events themselves enables you to open up to new possibilities. I believe that everyone has the capacity to think for themselves, that people are fundamentally OK and that they have the capacity to change.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified counsellor and executive coach. I have worked in the private and public sectors; leading people, projects and organisations. I support people to make changes and find solutions, both personal and professional.
I have worked with some people on defined, short-term issues (4-6 sessions) and with others over much longer periods of time (open-ended); sometimes months, occasionally years.
We all face times when life does not run smoothly: stress, anxiety, financial worries, broken relationships, loss – to name but a few. Sometimes, finding a way though may not be straight forward, particularly when you feel that others don’t understand or don’t have time for you. Counselling and coaching offers a safe, neutral environment to help you decide what to do differently.

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.
