Luisa Diaz MBACP
You may be struggling to cope with the uncertainty of current events. Perhaps you’re feeling overwhelmed by difficult emotions due to losses and changes you’ve experienced recently, or in the past. I provide an opportunity for you to explore your problems and navigate a way through your challenges, from within a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space.
Working at a pace that’s right for you, we will explore the thoughts and feelings behind your current difficulties and uncover their relationship to past experiences. My aim is to help you to gain a deeper understanding of your self, your relationships and to strengthen your inner resources, so that you can live your life more fully.
Sessions are weekly and last 50 minutes. I offer both open-ended and short-term work. I am based in Finchley N3 and New Southgate/Bounds Green N11. For more information or to arrange a consultation session, you can phone or text me on 07305 098556 or email me via this site.
The first session is an opportunity for you to share your difficulties, and for us to begin to explore what has brought you to counselling and your expectations. I will ask about your present circumstances and also something of your past. Together we can consider whether we feel we would like to work together.
At present I work remotely due to Covid-19. If you have any questions or concerns about remote work, please do not hesitate to ask.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within the professional standards as set out by the BACP Ethical Framework. I have a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling that is accredited by the BACP.
Aside from my private practice, I work with people through an Employee Assistance Provider, and I also provide trauma-focused Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) interventions for staff working for a large employer in the transport sector who have experienced work-related trauma. Previously I worked with people through two London charities, experiencing a range of different issues.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
