Patsy Faure: Relationship Counselling for Individuals and Couples
I AM CURRENTLY OFFERING SESSIONS ONLINE DURING THE COVID LOCKDOWN
Your relationship has become cold and distant, even stale and you have lost the intimate connection you once had. Couples sometimes talk about the ‘elephant in the room’.
I will help you to better understand each other by talking things through. Remembering happier times will allow you to reconnect and revive the romance you seek. By facing your differences, you will also gain the confidence to sort things out yourselves when life’s challenges arise and revitalise your relationship in the process. And you can start to think about the sort of future you want.
I bring a wealth of experience of couple and relationship work over 20 years. In addition to my work with couples and individuals, I teach and supervise in this work and I specialise in working with couples who are from different cultural backgrounds.

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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
