Mark Owen - Counsellor (MBACP Reg) & Psychosexual Therapist (MCOSRT)
My name is Mark Owen and I am a BACP and COSRT registered Counsellor with a degree in Marriage and Family therapy and a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy. Since 2012 I have worked in a wide variety of therapeutic settings both private care and within the NHS including, general mental health services, Eating Disorders Clinic, Bereavement Counselling and a Sexual Health Clinic.
There are many models of therapy and everyone responds differently to the various methods. Using an Integrative Model of therapy, which means I use a range of different models, allows me to design a more tailor made plan for you. While working in the clinics mentioned, I expanded my experience working with individuals, couples and families. These include:
- Person Centred
- Cognitive Behavioural
- Solution focused therapy.
I aim to make therapy affordable and accessible, because everyone deserves a chance to move on, get past their difficulties and bring harmony into their lives.
I know how difficult it is to take the first step and acknowledge that there is a problem. Finding the right therapist seems like an impossible task. I provide a non-judgemental, safe space for counselling and psychotherapy where we can explore your inner thoughts and empower your resilience in complete confidence.

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.
