Tom Relevitch (he/him), MA, BACP Registered Counsellor/Psychotherapist
Hi, I'm Tom, I have been a BACP Registered Member since 2014 and work supportively to create a safe, non-judgemental environment. My background is in English Literature and Philosophy, with an interest in communication and I use this to enrich my practice.
I am primarily interested in what makes people tick and I incorporate a Psychodynamic approach to explore how personal psychology impacts upon behaviours and relationships. We all have personal histories and bringing awareness to them can be a basis for emotional growth. I focus on you and work collaboratively with clients of all ages, ethnicities, sexualities and genders.
What I do
I work from an Integrative perspective with a foundation in the Person-Centered approach, addressing the here-and-now and offering empathy, congruence, unconditional positive regard, all within a safe environment in which to explore what concerns you. Once we have established trust, we can potentially make use of the Psychodynamic approach, which may involve exploring any unhelpful thoughts and/or patterns of behaviour.
Our work may consider your relationships in the past and present, with reflections on your attachment style and how you relate to self and others, so ultimately our work will always be tailored to suit your individual needs.
I welcome any questions and I look forward to hearing from 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.
