Ruth Brown, MBACP, Dip. Couns., Person Centred and Holistic Therapist
Are you feeling isolated, anxious or depressed, struggling with relationships or trying to cope post pandemic? Maybe you are dealing with health issues or have experienced a recent bereavement. If so, I have some new sessions opening up this Summer.
I have professional and also significant personal experience of working with life altering and traumatic situations and events and living with chronic illness and stress. I work in a person centred and existential way, helping clients to navigate their way through challenges, difficult thoughts, emotions and behaviours. I can also work with you to support good mental and physical health via a range of wellbeing and self-care approaches including meditation, relaxation and Emotional Freedom Technique.
I am currently working with clients online from my private practice in Horsell and hope to resume face to face work later this Summer.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained in person centred and existential counselling and am a Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and abide by their Code of Ethics and Good Practice.
In addition to my own private practice, I have worked as a bereavement counsellor for a local hospice; trained with a mental health charity facilitating support groups for adults experiencing depression and anxiety; and worked across a broad spectrum of issues for a counselling agency.
I have a special interest in how mental distress and trauma can manifest in our bodies and have worked with alternative health and healing practices for over 10 years. I have trained in EFT Levels 1, 2 and 3 and Matrix Reimprinting and undertaken training in meditation, relaxation, pain management and working with Internal Family Systems and body parts to overcome emotional difficulties and traumas.
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
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
From £45 per 50 minute session.
Before working with you I would be very happy to have an initial chat (no charge) to find out more about what you want to bring to counselling and talk through how we might work together.
I work with adults and older adults.
