Riana Lewis PGDip. HPDip. RegMBACP
I am a qualified Person-Centred Practitioner and registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), of which I practice within the organisations ethical framework.
Having worked with clients on a long term basis I have also worked within the NHS with clients short term at a Lambeth GP Surgery.
My aims are to provide a confidential, safe, accepting space where clients feel free to share their experiences and feelings, and to be heard for who they are.
I seek to engage in a co-created and supportive therapeutic relationship allowing self exploration, awareness and a deeper connection to the client’s own resources and true self.
My approach holds you, the client, at the centre of the work. I believe only you truly know what goes on for you and where you want to be. You hold the key and experiences to your personal growth.
My goal is to facilitate that growth through your frame of reference within the extension of the core conditions.
I understand that entering counselling can bring up difficult and painful feelings, I believe ‘the relationship is the therapy’, it can be life changing and enhancing to one’s process.

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.
