During the first session, we would explore more in depth  your reasons to seek counselling. We will set your goals for therapy, recognizing your personal resources, possible obstacles and ideal outcomes. This can help us to keep focused on what is important for you.

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.

Further information

Ancient traditions

I received teachings from the Mayan (Mexico) and Shipibo (Amazonas) indigenous traditions in the last 18 years. In 2012, I started a World Peace Journey, sharing these Ancient traditions in America and Europe. At the moment Ricardo works closely with  different collaborative projects related with the indigenous communities to preserve their traditions and protect the Jungle.
