Paul Wakefield Dip IIP MBACP
From 26th September 2020, I will be offering face to face counselling with 2m social distancing and adequate ventilation. Wearing of face masks is currently mandatory. Online and telephone counselling will continue and will also be there for continuity in case of a local or national lockdown.
A little about me…
Having worked on the coalface as an alcohol, drug and homelessness worker becoming a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist was a natural progression drawing upon a rich life experience.
My peers tell me that one of my best skills is the early development of the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client. This quickly allows you a safe place to work on whatever you wish to bring and so I look forward to meeting you with my focused, attentive style coupled with lots of curiosity, encouragement and warmth.

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).
