Sandra Chittick BSc MBACP - Wandsworth London
You may already know what you want from therapy or you may feel that something is not quite right but you’re not sure what. Perhaps you’re looking for help to make sense of your current feelings. Maybe you are feeling painful emotions or want to improve relationships or get a better understanding of yourself. Perhaps you're feeling unsettled due to bereavement, separation or health issues. Maybe you're feeling anxiety or stress. Well done for admitting that things aren't quite right and for starting your journey to bring back control. Counselling can provide a confidential space to bring clarity and order to your thoughts.
I am here to listen and support you, helping you to find your own solutions to move forward or reach your goal. I can offer you a confidential space to voice your thoughts and, together, we can look for ways to process and understand them. Counselling is a conversation where we can explore what’s going on for you now and bring order to your thoughts. Together, we can tailor therapy that suits your needs. I can provide long or short-term therapy and I use a range of techniques to help you move forward or reach your goal.
I am an integrative counsellor - that simply means we work together to look at how you’re currently feeling and, sometimes look at the past to bring understanding to the present. Get in touch with me and we can start a conversation on your path to change. Change is amazing.

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.
