Paul Brennan Registered MBACP London and Exeter - Grief, loss and change focus.

About me

I specialise is in supporting people dealing with loss, which may be a bereavement but may concern issues regarding loss, change and acceptance. This could be the death of a loved one, unresolved grief, the loss of a job, the end of a relationship or simply feeling a bit lost in life itself.

I have a Person Centred approach but work as an Integrative Counsellor and Therapist. As a Person Centred practitioner, I believe you know yourself best. By observing and understanding your concerns, I work with you to explore whatever is on your mind to look to find a path forward. I believe this approach helps people feel more empowered and can lead to profound change. As an Integrative Counsellor and Therapist, I draw on various approaches - Person Centred, Behaviourist or Psychodynamic - depending on what works best for you. It is important that I work alongside you to understand your issues, needs and, if appropriate, your goals.

I understanding that contacting a counsellor takes courage. That's okay. Why not drop me a line or call me for a brief chat to see if I am the best fit for your needs?

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Therapists (BACP) and follow its Ethical Framework. I keep up to date in my skills and competencies with regular CPD training.   As expected of all therapists, I have regular supervision as well as professional indemnity and public liability insurance.

I also volunteer for a national bereavement charity as a counsellor.

I offer both in person and online counselling and am a Registered Member of ACTO - the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online. In both situations, you can be assured of the same high quality commitment, respect, attention and privacy. It is important to me that you feel comfortable, safe and heard.

Qualifications:

  • Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling (BACP-accredited)
  • Advanced Certificate in Online Counselling (ACTO-accredited)
  • Cruse Bereavement Care Foundation and ongoing CPDs as a volunteer counsellor.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
