About me

Hello, my name is Raffaella, but everyone calls me Raffa.

I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor.

I believe it is hard for anyone in these days to find oneself and/or to speak about what is going on for ourselves – in the midst of all the conflicts and confusions of the outside world.

Life challenges us with constant changes and we can feel so very often overwhelmed and that's okay too, sometimes we are only able to live one week or one day at a time, and sometimes one "breath at a time." I will provide you with a safe and non-judgemental space  for you to talk to me about your concerns, your worries as " we've learned that quiet isn't always peace" (Amanda Gorman  poem Quiet isn't always peace). 

I am also able to offer clinical supervision to other fellow counsellors  at a reduced fee.

I am currently able to offer clinical supervision at low cost

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked and currently works onto the wards and clinics support  with patients directly. I believe that, aside any clinical intervention, it is also important that patients feel heard, and they have a safe space to explore their thoughts and feelings as well as to be able to talk openly about their concerns and what really matters to them.

Having worked for now over 5 years in the NHS, I am very experienced working with many different concerns worries,  supporting people in a professional, confidential unconditional way helping them to voice their own struggles and listening with great empathy to what really matters to them. In the recently 2 years, I worked as a counsellor  supporting people affected by different mental conditions and those struggling to survive the lost of a loved one. 

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
