Opeyemi 'Opy' Adebayo - MBACP
I focus mainly on enhancing an individual's self worth and values and couples relationship. Being valued as a person, without being judged, can help an individual to accept who they are, and reconnect with their own inner strength.
I practice an integrative model of therapy. I am a Humanistic Psychotherapist and Counsellor. My counselling experience focuses on Person-Centred Counselling (also known as a Client-Centred Counselling). The counsellor or psychotherapist in this approach aims to provide an environment in which you, my client, do not feel under threat or judged. This enables you to experience and accept more of who you are as a person, and reconnect with your own values and sense of self-worth. This reconnection with their inner resources enables you to find your own way of moving forward.
My office is within a couple of minutes from Stratford station with easy access into Central and East London.

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.
