About me

Welcome to Cliviger Counselling, a professional counselling service based in Cliviger near Burnley, run by myself, Shaun Reade. I am a fully qualified and highly experienced counsellor and a registered member of the BACP, the professional body that regulates counsellors and psychotherapists.

Having worked with many hundreds of clients from all backgrounds, I can help with a whole range of issues such as depression, anxiety, addiction, bereavement, gender, sexuality, relationship problems, to name just a few. As well as seeing clients privately, I also undertake work from a variety of private health insurers who demand high standards and real results from their counsellors.

I provide a confidential, compassionate and empathic environment as well as real help and support to my clients enabling them to move forward and feel better. My practice could be described as ‘integrative’ as it is grounded in a range of theoretical approaches to counselling. My training was in the Person Centred approach, but through continuing professional development I can also call upon other theories such as Transactional Analysis, Psychodynamic Theory and more humanistic approaches when appropriate to help you to move forward, gain insight into yourself and into whatever it was that brought you to counselling.

I would recommend counselling to anyone – it’s a great way to improve your mental health and wellbeing, whatever might be troubling you. There really is nothing to lose and so much to gain and I will be delighted to hear from you. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if would like to make an appointment. Thanks.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an honours degree and a professional qualification in counselling. I am also a registered member of the BACP which is a regulatory professional body for counsellors and psychotherapists to ensure my work meets with extremely high standards of practice, and I undertake regular professional development and further training to ensure I keep up to date with best and current practice.

In terms of experience, I have been qualified for 10 years and have worked in private practice in Burnley and Manchester City Centre throughout that time. I have also worked voluntarily in a drop-in centre in East Lancashire. These diverse environments have allowed me to build a wealth of experience of working with people from a huge range of backgrounds, with a wide variety of reasons for accessing counselling.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
