Keith Ewing (MA, MBACP)
Whether you are really struggling with life or have an underlying feeling that you could be more connected with yourself and those around you, therapy can create the space you need to move forward.
I am a BACP and UKCP registered integrative psychotherapist. I am also an Internal Family Systems therapist and use this approach with most of my clients. I work with a wide range of issues including anxiety, low self-esteem, issues from childhood, challenges with relationships, bereavement and depression. I offer a warm, empathic, open and non-judgemental space for you to explore the issues that have prompted you to seek counselling.
As an integrative psychotherapist, I draw on different approaches depending upon what best supports clients. These include humanistic, relational, cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic approaches. Increasingly clients are discovering the deep effectiveness of the Internal Family Systems (IFS) approach.
One of the most important experiences I have had in my life was a confidential counselling relationship in which I felt safe and supported to explore the issues that were of most concern to me. It is this that I seek to provide clients, whether their reasons for coming to therapy are to change ways of coping in life that no longer work, to improve relationships, feel more in touch with themselves, or any of dozens of other reasons that might prompt someone to seek support.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MA/Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling from Middlesex University, having trained at The Minster Centre in London. I am also an Internal Family Systems therapist. As well as seeing clients in private practice in Rotherhithe (SE16) and Waterloo (SE1), I am a community bereavement counsellor with the Haringey Bereavement Service, run by St Joseph’s Hospice, Hackney.
I have previously worked in communications for a major UK health sector charity and in overseas disaster relief and long-term international development for UK aid and development agencies. Prior to that I was a journalist.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy).
Code of Ethics:
I work within BACP's Ethical Framework, which includes regular supervision of my work and a commitment to ongoing professional development.
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.
