Stuart Toghill BA(hon) MBACP - Counselling & Psychotherapy
** Video counselling and telephone sessions available **
Thanks for looking at my profile. My name is Stuart, and I am an experienced ‘Integrative’ psychotherapist – which simply means that I use different approaches to help my clients. I am also trained in online and telephone counselling.
I used to be an NHS Paramedic, and have had a wide variety of life experiences which I think help me as a counsellor.
Everything we talk about is confidential, and you will never be judged in our sessions. Whatever your circumstances, I will provide a safe space for us to talk, and I will really listen.
I have a degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, and am a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I observe to the BACP Ethical Framework. I have also completed the Bereavement Counselling Service training (complex grief) and continue to volunteer for them.
Sometimes it can be difficult to see a counsellor - especially during lockdown - so I offer video counselling using Zoom, which is fully secure. Importantly, I am fully trained and experienced in providing online therapy, which includes telephone counselling.
I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation so that you have the time and space to decide if I am the right person to help you. If you feel that I might be the right person - please get in touch today. Making the first move is often the most difficult thing to do...
I offer individual sessions and also a discounted 'bulk' session option which most of my clients choose. I can accept payment by card or bank transfer.
Your enquiry will be treated in strict confidence. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank 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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
