Stephen Aravena - Integrative Psychotherapist and registered member of BACP
What is going on around the world? What will this mean for me? For my family? Will I make it through this?
If you have asked yourself any of these questions recently, you are not alone. Given the current uncertainty that surrounds us, when we all feel like things are unravelling so quickly, it is important to ensure we get the right support to help us make sense of unfolding events and what that means for us.
Sometimes, seeking help from a qualified therapist is the best way to get some clarity and make necessary changes. With over 20 years experience of working in a wide range of settings and with a cross section of people from all walks of life, I am well equipped to help you no matter what your personal circumstances. I am a committed and professional psychotherapist with one priority; to help you make the changes you want so you can enjoy life more.
I look forward to meeting you and embarking on a journey together, towards a happier you.

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.
