Ricky Brown Dip Integrative Psychotherapy , Dip CBT, MBACP (Accred), MSc
Private mental health service offering counselling therapies for a range of conditions.
I trained as a psychotherapist later in life following a previous career working with vulnerable individuals. Coupled with my now extensive psychotherapeutic training, I am a well-rounded, conscientious and empathetic individual whom is well respected within the field.
I can offer a safe, non-judgemental space for you to explore your personal challenges and concerns. I have worked with, and continue to work with a multitude of issues, tailoring my dynamic approach to befit the individual needs of you, the client.
The first step towards change is taking the initiative to seek help. In respect of the courage involved in making those initial steps, I offer a free twenty-minute phone consultation to all prospective clients.
Alternatively, if you would like to make an appointment you can email me via the link on this page or by telephoning the above number. I aim to respond to your requests and enquiries within 1-2 working days.
The first meeting will be an opportunity to engage and explore your concerns. You will gain a better understanding of the support available to you and how this can be adapted to suit your personal needs. If you choose to continue, I will usually suggest a fixed number of sessions which can be extended or reduced depending on your assessed progress.
ONLINE AND TELEPHONE COUNSELLING
In these modern times, I can further offer online video and/ or telephone counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a BSc (Hons) in Complementary Therapy with Stress Management coupled with a higher diploma in Integrative Counselling and a further diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I am also EMDR trained and practicing. I amass 19 years of experience in supporting people through difficulty and am MBACP Accredited.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
