Viktoria Kirilova MBACP Integrative Therapist (BSc Psych, PGdip Counselling)
I am a MBACP fully qualified and experienced counsellor who can offer therapy that is individually tailored to your particular needs. I use an integrative approach to my work with clients and have experience of working with people of all ages and backgrounds.
If you are feeling that there are things in your life that are causing you to feel unhappy or worried, I am here to help. Through counselling, I can help you to explore what you're going through so that you can make better sense of your feelings. Together we can focus on whatever you feel the need to work on in your life, which can enable you to gain better insight and understanding of your experiences.
In my practice I place a real emphasis upon the therapeutic relationship as I recognise how important it is for clients to feel safe. I always aim to create an environment where people can come and open up about the difficulties they are experiencing.
I abide by the BACP Code of Practice and work within their Ethical Framework, which means that any information you disclose will be treated confidentially.
When you contact me, I will return your call/email within 24 hours.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
