Romey Sylvester CTA, MSC in Counselling and Psychotherapy, MBACP, UKCP.
I'm Romey and welcome to my profile. I am a qualified and experienced counsellor offering effective therapy for depression, stress and anxiety, relationship problems, family difficulties and many other issues as well. I work in Brentwood, in a confidential setting with individuals, couples and groups.
I offer a confidential and non judgmental place in which you can talk about, and explore areas of difficulty in your life. This could be an immediate crisis, such as a relationship breakdown, or bereavement, or it maybe due to more long terms problems such as feeling low, anxious, or depressed, having relationships difficulties, or just feeling like something needs to change.
Please give me a ring, text or contact me by email to see how I can help.

I am a registered member of BACP, and also of UKCP.
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.
Accredited register membership

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).
