Roger Mills MBACP (Senior Accred)
Are you having problems with anger management, relationship difficulties, feeling depressed, anxious or suffering following a bereavement? I can provide effective counselling to help you through these difficulties.
I have been working as a counsellor for 15 years and have a proven track record in successfully helping people to resolve the problems they face.
Previously I have worked as a counsellor for the Priory and for the NHS and I now practice from offices in the heart of Eastbourne. I am also a senior accredited therapist with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My main approach to counselling is based on CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). This is the method most widely used in the NHS today and the approach which is consistently shown by research to be highly effective for psychological difficulties.
If you would like to set up an initial consultation, or would just like more information, you can contact me on 07980 543999 or via the contact page on this site
Training, qualifications & experience
Over the years I counselled in low cost mental health centres, for the NHS, for Employee Assistance Programmes and for the Priory.
My many different experiences of counselling work have given me a deep understanding of mental health problems and I have worked successfully with people suffering from stress, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, anger issues and post traumatic reactions.
I have trained in a number of different approaches to counselling including Existential counselling, Psychodynamic Counselling, CBT and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing).
As well as working as a counsellor I also regularly run training programmes on subjects like stress management, post trauma counselling and sickness absence management.
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.

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).
