About me

Ken Mendoza Counselling Services offers a personalised approach to therapy, led by Ken Mendoza. I’m an integrative counsellor dedicated to upholding ethical guidelines set by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). With a focus on confidentiality, respect, and professionalism. I offer a safe space for clients to explore their emotions and confront challenges such as anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship issues. Drawing from various therapeutic modalities, I tailor my approach to meet the unique needs of each individual, fostering self-discovery, resilience, and empowerment.

I offer face to face counselling within the Berkshire area, based in Bracknell. If you are seeking support in counselling the journey starts with a phone call or email with the view to have a telephone consultation to discuss your needs. If you are happy to the agreed time and date the sessions will begin.

If you're ready to embark on a journey towards healing and transformation, contact Ken Mendoza Counselling Services today.

Training, qualifications & experience

In the realm of counselling support, every encounter is a story and every interaction a chapter in the lives of those seeking solace and understanding. As someone who has traversed this landscape for many years, I have come to realise that the essence of my work lies by embracing the profound narratives that shape each individual's journey.

My journey in mental health support began over 16 years ago with a profound curiosity and a desire to make a difference. Little did I know then, it would evolve into a rich tapestry of experiences, spanning countless encounters with individuals navigating the intricate corridors of their minds.

Throughout the years, I have had the privilege of working alongside clients grappling with many presenting issues. From anxiety to depression, trauma to addiction, each challenge presents a unique opportunity for growth and healing. Every individual, with their distinct set of circumstances and experiences, has enriched my understanding of the human psyche in ways I could never imagined.

One of the most profound lessons I have learned is the importance of empathy. Behind every diagnosis lies a person, with dreams, fears, and aspirations. By embracing empathy, we create a safe space for individuals to share their stories without fear of judgment. It is through this empathy that genuine connections are forged, paving the way for transformative healing journeys.

Moreover, resilience is a recurring theme that has continually inspired me. Witnessing individuals confront their darkest moments with unwavering determination has been nothing short of humbling. It is a testament to the human minds capacity to endure, adapt, and ultimately thrive in the face of adversity.

However, it is essential to acknowledge the systemic challenges that permeate the mental health landscape. From limited access to resources to stigmatisation, these hurdles often exacerbate the struggles faced by individuals seeking support. As qualified counsellor it is incumbent upon us to challenge these barriers and strive for a more inclusive and equitable mental health system.

Looking back on my years in mental health support, I am filled with gratitude for the countless individuals who have entrusted me with their stories. Each encounter has left an indelible mark on my journey, shaping me into the counselling practitioner I am today. While the path ahead may be fraught with challenges, it is illuminated by the resilience, courage, and humanity of those I serve.

In the end, counselling is about fostering hope, resilience, and empowerment. It is about honouring the inherent dignity and worth of every individual, regardless of their struggles. As I continue this journey, I am reminded that the greatest privilege lies in bearing witness to the transformative power of the human mind.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
