Lei Myo Oo, UKCP (Reg) MBACP (Accred) Psychotherapy and Counselling
My name is Lei Myo and I am a qualified and accredited psychotherapeutic counsellor with experience of working with short and long term counselling.
I take an integrative approach with my work, working with Person Centered, Gestalt, Jungian, Psychoanalytic and Psychosynthesis theories. The heart of my work is mindfulness with a respect of where a client currently is in their life.
I understand how life can sometimes be hard, challenging, frustrating and lonely and how it can help to have therapy in those times to support and journey with.
I also understand how therapy can help make an individual empowered, accepting, liberated and aware by providing a safe, respectful and sometimes challenging space.
I work with my clients in a space where we explore together how we can hold the challenges of current life at the same time as living with purpose, meaning and creativity through psychological and spiritual growth.
Please feel free to contact me via telephone or email if you would like an informal chat about where you are and if we could work together, or to arrange an initial session.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling from the Psychosynthesis and Education Trust and a Masters in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy with the Institute of Psychosynthesis and am also trained in EMDR.
I have previously worked as a volunteer counsellor for the Miscarriage Association for several years with experience of providing telephone counselling and support. I have also facilitated the London support group at Guy's Hospital.
I have also worked with a wide range of clients from my time as a counsellor at Mind in Tower Hamlets and Newham in short term counselling. I also have experience of working with addiction from my time with the Alcohol Service in Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster and Equinox Care in the areas of recovery, drug and alcohol addiction and homelessness.
I am an Accredited Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP). I also adhere to the Professional and Ethical Framework for Good Practice of the BACP and I am in regular monthly supervision as required by the BACP.
I also have a BA in Culture and Communication from Lancaster University.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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).
