Stephen Henfrey MA, MBACP
I am a solution focused practitioner with over 15 years’ experience in the solution focused field as a counsellor, coach and trainer, working with clients of all ages and backgrounds. I am committed to working in partnership with clients to enable them to achieve their goals and reach their full potential.
I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and the UK Association for Solution Focused Practice (UKASFP).
The solution focused brief therapy approach to counselling and psychotherapy involves identifying or finding effective solutions to issues clients are experiencing. In our sessions I work in partnership with you the client to establish your therapy goals and explore your personal strengths and resources to identify how they can be best utilised to achieve these goals. Attention is therefore given to developing a picture of the ‘solution’ and exploring the resources to achieve it. Within us all lies the key for change and the fact that you have identified a need for counselling is the first and hardest step towards enabling this change.

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.
