Wendy Constantinou Accredited MBACP Registered Counsellor And Psychotherapist
As an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor, I have experience of working with adults and young people, offering short term solution focused therapy or long term psychotherapy depending on your own personal needs.
I offer a warm, welcoming and genuine approach to counselling which is sincere, truthful and non judgemental.
My ethos is ' Helping others to move towards positive change' and that I believe is achieved by working in an environment that is transparent, honest, safe and supportive which will enable change to happen
I have personally experienced counselling and am passionate about the importance and benefits of having a compassionate and empathic counsellor which I believe is paramount in building the therapeutic relationship.
This is essential to establish and create a willingness for you to share and engage within the therapeutic space, which I believe is fundamental to move towards positive change.
I offer a free 15 minute consultation, which offers you a chance to meet and express your concerns and discuss your goals, and a further appointment can be discussed if you wish.

Due to the current circumstances I also offer online counselling which can be accessed in the format of whatsapp or facetime If that is preferred.
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.
