Oliver Chadwick - Valued Living Counselling & Cognitive Behavioural Therapies
Our vision at Valued Living is to provide a credible private alternative to NHS Talking Therapies, with an emphasis on tailoring support to each individual. We want the therapy that you receive to be the most helpful and we want you to get the most value for your money. We rely on our compassion and our extensive knowledge of evidence-based treatments to make this happen.
All of our practitioners are experienced mental health professionals which ensures that you receive the best quality support. We recognise that there are many reasons why people choose to access private therapy and we have designed our service to accommodate these. We are not a target driven or results-focused service, we can offer a short-term or long-term service dependent upon your needs, and we offer a variety of support options via face-to-face, telephone and Skype depending on your preference.
We know that it is difficult to know where to begin when accessing therapy. There are so many options that sometimes making the right decision can feel impossible. At Valued Living we use our expertise to make this process easier and guide you every step of the way. We will discuss your situation during an initial 45-minute consultation to identify the difficulties you're experiencing, how you prefer to address issues and what qualities you’re looking for in a therapist. We will then use this information to offer you the support options which you will likely find most helpful.
We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver the most effective treatment for your needs, within an approach that is tailored to your unique preferences, and we will work hard to develop a relationship with you that is built upon openness, understanding, and respect.
At Valued Living we want to support and guide you through your difficult time from the first moment of contact. Please visit our website for more information about the therapies that we offer: www.valuedliving.co.uk/services

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.

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).
