Zoe Barrett MBACP Integrative Counsellor
I'm Zoë, I am based in St Austell, in Cornwall.
I provide both short term and long term therapy, for individuals and couples. I believe the Relationship is the heart of the Therapeutic process. From our initial session, we will both be able to see if we are able to work together towards an established working alliance and trust-based relationship. I feel with a trust-based relationship and the right environment, there is the potential to have a greater awareness of personal issues. Through regular contact, I will be able to sit beside you on the journey to self-discovery, with self-discovery comes growth and the awareness of change.
As an Integrative Counsellor, I work in a variety of ways. I have a humanistic core to my Therapy, drawing on Psychodynamic theory, working with the unconscious thoughts. A passion of mine is looking into childhood, piecing together who you are today, Looking into attachment styles. From this, we can look at the present day. I will provide a safe space for you to talk freely and try to understand what it means to be you.
Creative therapy, Sand tray and Gestalt also used.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have 2 years experience of Person-Centred Counselling (level 2 & 4) which I gained via The University of Plymouth.
I then went onto study at The Iron Mill in Exeter, which is part of The University of Worcester. I completed a FdA (level 4 & 5) in Integrative Counselling.
With over 150 hours of placement included in my degree, I have had the opportunity to work in-depth with Anxiety, Depression, Addictions and Work Stresses.
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.
