Hello, my name is Patricia Moh and I am a qualified and experienced Counselling Psychotherapist registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
I offer individual therapy/counselling which can be time limited and solution focused or long term/open ended. I am trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Counselling. However I am able to integrate these two models of therapy to suit my client’s needs.
What to Expect from our first session
When you contact me we will have a brief conversation to arrange a date and time for your initial assessment. The initial assessment will last an hour and it is an opportunity for you to tell me a bit about yourself and why you have sought counselling/therapy. We can also discuss any questions or concerns you have about further sessions. If you feel comfortable and confident that we can work together we will then agree a time and day in the week for further sessions.
How can counselling help?
Counselling/Therapy can help you get better self-awareness and a deeper understanding of yourself and others. It can also help improve your self-esteem which is in turn reflected in your personal relationships and you begin to feel better about yourself and who you are.
If you are experiencing repetitive negative patterns in your relationships or suffer from depression, low mood, general anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) or social anxiety counselling/therapy can help you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Foundation Degree in Short-term Psychodynamic Counselling & Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - BACP Accredited - Birkbeck University.
I have worked with a wide range of clients who have presented with panic attacks, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), PTSD, phobias and general low mood. Other areas of experience include:
- Anxiety and stress
- Loss and bereavement
- Trauma, neglect, and abuse
- Attachment and relationship issues
- Low self-confidence/self-esteem
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.
