Tanya Dyer, BSc, MSc, Registered MBACP (Accred).
Counselling is best in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment. I am a fully qualified registered and BACP accredited Counsellor/ Psychotherapist and I have hundreds of hours of experience in providing therapy and I work with people to reduce feelings of anxiety, low self esteem and depression. I am also experienced in helping clients through panic disorders, generalized anxiety, family and relationship issues, as well as a variety of other challenges such as abuse.
Being able to talk completely openly and freely about anything, and learning to think differently, can lead to permanent changes in life and are big steps in overcoming whatever problems you might face.
The number of sessions can vary depending on the issue and will always be something that feels comfortable for you. Some people find short term work to be sufficient, while others may find it more helpful to have longer term support. This is something that can be helpful to discuss in the initial sessions.

In light of Covid 19 I am only available for telephone or video appointments.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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).
