Mike Freeman MBACP, MNCS(Accred).
I work with adult men and women of all ages anywhere in the UK offering online video and telephone counselling.
People have said that they feel safe with me, appreciating my calm, non-judgemental approach and my ability to gently notice feelings, patterns and habits which has enabled them to make changes in their lives. I try to connect with the part of you that wants to feel better.
I tend to specialise working with men on issues like: midlife crisis, relationships, grief, being ‘stuck between two generations’, anxiety and anger.
It is vital that your work with your counsellor is collaborative and that you feel in control of the pace of the work. You need to feel that you can build a strong working relationship where you can express and explore your feelings. So I always suggest a brief conversation by telephone or online for you to see if you feel we could work together.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified counsellor, member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and an Accredited Registrant member of the National Counselling Society (NCS).
Both professional bodies have codes of ethics that I fully adhere to, so you can be confident in my approach to confidentiality and respect.
I have had a career in both the corporate and the public sector. While giving advice is not part of my role as a counsellor, for some it is important that their counsellor has had extensive personal and professional experience.
I have also completed accredited telephone and online counsellor training and this, coupled with my 10 years experience working as a telephone listener, means that I have been able to make a smooth transition to working online and offer a high-quality service, either by telephone or online via a secure video link.
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

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).
