Martin Bulpitt BA (Hons) Diploma in Counselling, MBACP (Accredited)
Welcome to my profile page. (I have resumed in person counselling with important safety measures in place).
By finding this site it is likely that you have been experiencing a difficulty that you would like some help with. Perhaps struggling with your emotions, perhaps relationships you would like to improve, perhaps a recent loss, past difficulties and/or current ones you cannot seem to resolve however hard you try. Not knowing who to turn to or knowing anyone who will really listen and understand your situation can feel very lonely and sometimes quite frightening.
Counselling is a process that will help you to express yourself as much as you want to about your problem(s) to a trained person in a safe, supportive and non-judge-mental environment.
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have been working in the caring professions for nearly 30 years and have seen how many different factors have impacted on people's lives causing various levels of stress, anxiety, depression and general feelings of helplessness. It has been a privilege working alongside people, helping them through difficult times both practically and emotionally.
As a person-centred and psychodynamic counsellor I offer both short and long term therapy.
I have a private practice based in the peaceful village of Eaton, one mile west of Cumnor and only five miles from both Oxford and Abingdon. The counselling room overlooks Eaton Heath and there is ample free parking within the property. I also work at a GP practice, providing a counselling service for registered patients, with the established NHS and Talking Space Partnership.
For further information please visit my website www.martinbulpittcounselling.com and/or contact me by phone or email. I would be pleased to chat with you and to arrange the next steps.

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.
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.
