Yvonne Onyeka Registered Member MBACP (Accredited)
Whether you are anxious, depressed or struggling with relationships, I aim to support you to understand and then unblock unhelpful relational patterns, thoughts and behaviours. I offer a non-judgmental space to nurture your possibilities and to move forward. Sometimes this is about trying new approaches, having courageous conversations, or accepting yourself. I offer Integrative Counselling and Interpersonal Psychotherapy to adults.
As an accredited Integrative Counsellor and Interpersonal Psychotherapy practitioner, I draw on core therapeutic approaches to help reduce depression and anxiety and improve relationships.
I offer Interpersonal Psychotherapy to help to reduce conflict, manage significant changes, cope with complex bereavement and to build social confidence and skills. I also work with existential and psychodynamic approaches to support you to understand yourself better, identify and maximise your strengths so you can live to your fullest potential.

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.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I will arrange an initial telephone assessment with you, which will be an opportunity to ask further questions.
I charge £60 per session for individuals. Sessions are weekly and we can agree the number of sessions that we think you may need.
