Counsellor (MBACP Reg) & Psychosexual Therapist (MCOSRT)

About me

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
  • Systemic
  • Cognitive Behavioural
  • Psychodynamic
  • 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.

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.
