At Tempo Psychotherapy Services we aim to provide you with a safe, confidential and accepting environment where a respectful and trusting therapeutic relationship can be established. Irrespective of our theoretical approach we consider the therapeutic relationship as the keystone to our work. Through this we 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 and feeling more connected.
As Emotionally Focused therapists we work with individuals and couples exploring ways to reconnect with oneself and within relationships by understanding and exploring our patterns of interacting and finding different and healthy ways of relating, connecting and communicating.
Our work has been with people of all ages and abilities. As well as working in private practice we have worked in schools, hospitals, hospices, family centres, for charitable organisations and in training centres.

Training, qualifications & experience
Both Ros and Alison are qualified psychotherapists having trained to Post Graduate and Diploma levels. We are fully insured and adhere to the code of ethics of the professional bodies with whom we are a member and registered.
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.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).

For individual sessions: we begin with an assessment session, which lasts an hour and is a chance to find out more about what you are wanting from therapy and whether we are the right therapist for you.
Sometimes during this initial assessment 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 we will endeavour to point you in the right direction.
Session fee for initial assessment session for individual work is £70 (1 hour)Session fee for individual sessions is £60 (some concessions available) (50 minutes)
As Emotionally Focused Couples therapists it is usual to have a 4 session assessment period, two couple sessions and an individual session each. Session fee for couples sessions £80 (60 minutes) Session fee for individual sessions as part of couple work £70 (60 minutes)
