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 ?




How do I know that you are ethical ?

As a member of BACP (see the links section) I subscribe to their Ethical Framework, a comprehensive document which provides a number of guidelines and requirements to support practitioner integrity. However I don't think that signing a piece of paper once a year is enough.

I have designed and run workshops for counsellors addressing the ethical, clinical, legal and moral dimensions of the dilemmas that we encounter in our work. I served four years as the Vice Chair of the UKAHPP Ethics Committee and adhere to their ethical code in addition to the BACP.

I spent ten years in the Independant Practitioners Network, as part of the full member group known as Rowan, in which we regularly challenged and 'stood-by' each others practice.

I have on-going supervision, both individual and group, to support and scrutinise my process as a therapist.

I take responsibility for my clinical work and am available to be examined upon any aspect of it.

In the unlikely event that an issue crops up with a client that we are unable to resolve between us, there are options for mediation with colleagues or independant peers.  In the worst case scenario you could complain to my professional body.

In twenty years plus of client work, such events have never occurred.

Supervision slots are on Wednesdays or Thursdays during the daytime, in Isleworth


Therapy slots are Mondays (daytime and evening) and Fridays (daytimes only) in Ealing. There are occasional one-off slots to explore working with me, or a limited set of three or four when on-going clients are away.


Please get in touch to discuss the type of issues you would like to address.
