About me

My name is Sidonia Stiles and I am a trained Counselling Therapist with 5 years of experience and 12 year trained. As a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), I work within the BACP Ethical Framework of Data Protection and Confidentiality. I bring knowledge from both Person-Centred and Psychodynamic Therapy models. I help people see their pattern of thinking in a caring and nurturing way that helps them develop their skills in understanding their capabilities and strengths. I am trained with specific clinical tools that help people see the why’s and how’s of conditions and situations.

I work with Anxiety, Depression, Panic Attacks, Personality Disorder and PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder) and Family / Relationships. I work transparently and professionally with clinical tools to help my clients see and understand clearly what's happening in sessions. I do this with a contract of confidentiality and an understanding of Counselling.

I am passionate about the well-being of others and have spent most of my life learning about the way we think and the why’s and how’s of life. I use tools that change our perceptions of our own thinking broadening the ways our cognitions relate to our subconscious allowing for further meanings and understandings of the condition or situations we live with.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am working towards becoming an accredited Counsellor with the BACP and have a HND Diploma (2006) in Person Centred counselling as well as a LeveL 5 Diploma in Relationship therapy (2019) with CPCAB ( Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body).

I have 5 year training and 12 year of experience of work with the above conditions but most recently gained a further level 5 Diploma with Relate National, specialising in Relationship therapy.

I have also worked with in a secure unit for young people (9-21) with challenging behaviour as a Group worker for 10 years.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

My practice caters for the disabled and has wheelchair access. I have disable toilets and all doors in the property are disabled friendly.
