Michael Fieldhouse Counsellor
Michael Fieldhouse BA(Hons), Dip Couns, MBACP. NHS trained Integrative Counsellor.
From my private counselling therapy room near the Cliffs Pavilion in Westcliff-on-Sea I offer a safe, confidential and welcoming space for you to bring whatever issues, thoughts or feelings that are troubling you.
I trained at the highly regarded Inter-Psyche Institute (see www.inter-psyche.co.uk) which is the only humanistic/integrative counselling training organisation based in the NHS.
As an Integrative Counsellor I can tailor your therapy to your personal needs and will work with you to help find the answers you need.
My own practice is primarily person-centered and encompasses elements of existential, psychodynamic and cognitive theory. As an Integrative therapists I take the view that there is no single approach that can treat every client in all situations. Rather, each person needs to be considered as a whole and counselling techniques must be specifically tailored to their individual needs and personal circumstances. To learn more about my approach to therapy, please visit my website: www.michaelfieldhouse.org
I have extensive experience and training working with adult survivors of rape and childhood sexual abuse - both men and women. For a number of years I worked for Family Matters (https://www.familymattersuk.org), a charity providing support and counselling in this area.

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.
