Stephen Henfrey MA, MBACP

London, E11

About me

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.

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.

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.
