MBACP, Person-Centred Therapy Counsellor

About me

Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation.

Hello, my name is Oleg and I am qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. Having spent over 15 years working in Banking and Finance industry, I am able to bring a wealth of life experience to my counselling work, which I believe is very important for a counsellor. I have been volunteering in one of the Children and family hubs in Medway to promote mental health in my clients. 

I offer non judgmental and confidential counselling to Men and Women from all walks of life and from many differing circumstances. I understand that it is important that you feel comfortable with the counsellor you have chosen and be able to build a therapeutic relationship.

I believe every individual has the means within themselves to ‘get better’ and that the Counsellor’s role was to walk alongside you while you found the drive within yourself to do this.

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.
