Paola Casotti BA (Hons)/Counselling, Psychotherapy MBACP
I offer Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy to help with issues that may include anxiety, anger, depression, relationship and sexuality difficulties, abuse, addictions, work-related stress, amongst others.
The sessions are once a week and last fifty minutes.
The length of the therapy can vary, depending on the time that is needed for the client to work through difficulties and crisis.
When working together, client and therapist will explore present and the past conflicts in order to identify the relation between the present emotions and the early life experiences. By understanding how childhood experiences affect our emotions and behaviour as adults, it is possible to understand the root of the problem.
Through greater awareness we can find a way to manage difficulties and to change patterns and habits that are causing these difficulties.

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).
