Kullaya Butterworth Adv.Dip, BA, MA, BACP Accredited Register
I am an Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist with years of experience working with individuals on a wide range of problems and life-challenges. This means that I draw on various approaches to counselling. My main work. I use a practical, self-focused approach to help people to see themselves and their aims in life in a better, more positive way.
Where to start?
Oneself may be the last place we want to look at but it is the first place of the beginning. Inner-self is very powerful function and with the lack of self-discovery, we often face our difficulties not knowing 'why'. My work is to provide you with a warm, confidential, non-judgmental and safe space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings in more depth. My way of working is supportive, collaborative, accepting and gently challenging. I am wholly committed to being focused on what is important to you and what it is that you want to gain from our working together.
I am originally from Thailand and have graduated and lived in the UK for 30 + years. I have experienced and understand cultural differences, adjustment, adaptation and diversity.
I abide by the BACP codes of ethics and professional confidentiality.

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.
