About me, my practise & my experience

Hi, I'm Ron I opened my Centre; Independent Therapy Solutions on 1st August 2005 after working at RELATE, GP Surgeries and in the drug and alcohol field. I was a family group conference coordinator for the local health authority and for several year’s I taught the Diploma in Counselling, briefly at Chelmsford College and then at Life Force in Colchester I am an experienced clinical supervisor for therapists, students and have supervision regularly myself.

I became a counsellor because of life events and my own self-healing journey, that isn't as easy as it sounds, let's just say that I have been there, and got the t-shirt! It took my own counselling and much learning which has qualified me to be part of other people’s journeys. I have been member of the BACP for more than 25 years and adhere to their Code of Practise and maintain the required continuous professional development.

My expertise is people and life, and my quest is to support people in a confidential, non - judgemental, self- empowering way.

I am a compassionate professional that has helped many individuals and couples, from all walks of lives, each with their own story, I have a ‘tool bag’ of skills across many paradigms which enables an integrative and personalised therapeutic approach. Building a relationship based on collaboration and trust, exploring what has brought you to therapy and what comes into your sessions, it can sometimes be like peeling an onion and this process can be long or short, but you will be the centre of the sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

BTEC Diploma in Counselling

As you can imagine for how long I have been qualified I have many qualifications, professional development and have covered many paradigms.

My most recent training is with Carolyn Spring PODS, Reversing Adversity

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.
