Tom Meaney MBACP (Accredited), PGDip Counselling & Psychotherapy, PGCert, BA
As a person-centred counsellor I believe that every unique individual has the ability to move through difficult situations and towards a way of being which feels more true to them. I believe that everyone has the ability to develop and grow, as well as the ability to learn to love and accept who they are- as this difficult as this might feel at times.
I approach my work with integrity, care and with the best interests of the client at the heart of everything I do. I aim to create a strong therapeutic alliance with the client and I believe that my unconditional regard for them, my authenticity and my high level of empathy enables a therapeutic environment in which they can be heard, understood and able to explore their feelings and experiences.
My professional experience tells me that this often leads the client to gain a deeper awareness and understanding of who they are, what they need and where they want to be.
I am also trained and qualified to use CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) interventions. Whilst I work predominantly within a person-centred framework I am able to integrate CBT where appropriate. This is particularly helpful for anxiety, panic and low mood.
I am BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) registered and accredited. This means that I have met the BACP's higher standards for competent, safe and independent practice.
