Tora Davidsson, Psychotherapist and Counsellor, MSc, MBACP registered
I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist with experience of working with a range of clients from various backgrounds and in different settings. I have a background in the creative sector and this informs my way of working; encouraging creativity and flexibility within therapy are intrinsic to my practice.
I believe that our relationships with others and with ourselves are paramount to our health and wellbeing. I will help you look at how experiences in your past may have influenced your life today and how these have shaped your behaviour, motivations and relationship patterns. Rest-assured that this will be approached from an open-minded and non-judgemental perspective, and within a safe space.
Feel free to contact me for an initial conversation. This will be a free phone call and last approximately 20 minutes. It will provide an opportunity for us to become acquainted and for me to explain how we will work together.
I am currently offering sessions face to face and by video call.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have experience of working with a range of clients across the NHS, the charity sector and in student counselling. I trained at Birkbeck College, University of London and am affliated with, and abide by the ethical codes of, the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (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.

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).
