Rosalind Peckham - Registered Member MBACP (Accred) & HCPC
I am a qualified and accredited BACP and HCPC registered Integrative Counsellor and Arts Psychotherapist with over 25 years’ experience working therapeutically with children, young people and adults. I offer short and long term counselling and therapy for young people, adults and couples.
Being an integrative therapist means that I am trained in a variety of different psychotherapeutic theories and techniques such as transactional analysis, gestalt, psychoanalytic theories and creative therapies. I also work as an emotionally focused couples therapist. This varied skills set and theoretical knowledge means that I can tailor my approach to suit your particular needs.
I aim to provide you with a safe, confidential and accepting environment where a respectful and trusting therapeutic relationship can be established. Irrespective of my theoretical approach I consider the therapeutic relationship as the keystone to my work. Through this I will work collaboratively with you to help and support you in exploring whatever is concerning you so that you can identify any patterns that may be being repeated and find your way forward to a more content and happy way of living your life.
My work has been with people of all ages and abilities. As well as working in private practice I have worked in schools, hospitals, hospices, family centres, for charitable organisations and in training centres.

An initial meeting of approximately 30 minutes is offered, which costs £30.
This will be a time to meet each other and find out if I'm the right therapist for you. Sometimes during this initial meeting it comes to light that you may be better placed with a different therapist with a particular area of expertise. If this is the case I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.
Individual sessions cost £60 (some concessions available)
Couples sessions cost from £80
Sessions are 50 minutes long for individuals and 60 minutes for couples. You will not be charged for missed or cancelled sessions if you give 48 hours notice. I will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible if I am unable to keep an appointment, and in that instance no fee will be charged.
