Steve Burchell psychotherapy counselling supervision west london v2 200



This set of web pages are a shop window for my psychotherapy and supervision private practice based in West London near Richmond, Isleworth, Hounslow and Ealing. They are intended to help you decide whether you would like to work with me. Have a look through the site or contact me with any further questions.

If you would like to read a paper I wrote for BACP here is the information sheet G8 Counselling Asylum Seekers and Refugees 








This site is partly self-constructed using those wonderful people at Chameleon but, due to my tinkering, may not behave as expected. Please let me know if there are any glitches in your browser. For example - do you see the glass as half empty or half full ?




Are you 'accredited'

During the nearly 30 years I have been practicing I have assisted many supervisees to gain accreditation - mostly through BACP (see links). However for many years I opted not to go down the accreditation route as I have some serious concerns with it's credibility in guaranteeing any quality of practice or safety from harm. In that light I have been involved in campaigning against the state regulation of psychotherapy (a major driver behind accreditation) and have actively supported the IPN model of accountability. The IPN group that I was in achieved full membership status of the Network and lasted for over a decade. Since that group finished in 2009 - itself a testament to the quality of the IPN process as 'standing by' requires constant refreshing - I have joined the UKAHPP as a member 'seeking accreditation' and subsequently received registration with UKCP. I am also a registered member with BACP as many training courses now require that as a minimum. 

If you would like to know more about my concerns with 'accreditation' please use the contact form to email me or have a look at the the links for 'The Alliance', Independant Practitioners Network and Ipnosis.

UPDATE  31/12/17

Following some changes in the professional landscape I have resigned my membership of UKAHPP and am now a direct registrant with UKCP (the PCIPC college). I remain a registered member of BACP
