 A past clients experience of working with Andrew for english online therapy. 

“Andrew is a wonderful, caring counsellor who has become a trusted professional helping me with my anger issues.  Andrew is prompt, courteous, and respectful of your time, and is never late for a session and has never cancelled.  I had my doubts about therapy via Skype, but living in a country where they didn’t speak English and the availability of mental health services very low I decided to give it a shot, and am I ever glad I did!  I am happier, healthier, and more able to tackle the challenges in my life thanks to Andrew and owe him my sincerest thanks for everything.”

This post is about how Andrew Harvey Counsellor works, and what types of therapy clients can expect, for more detailed explanations of the types of therapy see this information here. 

Andrew identifies as a Pluralistic Counsellor

“Pluralism is a way of thinking about therapy that has emerged in recent years. It is based on the assumption that no one therapeutic approach has the monopoly on understanding the causes of distress or on the most helpful therapeutic responses. Instead, it suggests that different clients are likely to want — and benefit from — different things in therapy. Hence, it suggests that therapists should be open to respecting understandings and practices from across the counselling and psychotherapy spectrum” www.pluralistictherapy.com  .

Andrew’s training has included a number of therapy methods and types of therapy. In collaboration with clients he finds the best way to respond to their needs.

Andrew Harvey Counsellor

Andrew’s training includes a number of different modalities including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Psychotherapy, Mindfulness, Third wave cognitive behavioural therapy, Acceptance and commitment therapy, Person-centred therapy,  Counselling, interpersonal therapy, Behavioural therapy, Gestalt therapy, Solution-focused therapy and Psychodynamic therapy.

Pluralistic counselling can help clients with lots of different challenges and issues including addiction, anxiety, relationship issues, panic, depression, feeling sad, addiction, bereavement, mental health issues, sexual abuse, low self-confidence, low self-esteem, stress, anger, trauma, self-harm, attachment disorders, life challenges and emotional issues.

The Contribution of Private Counselling

The Contribution of Private Counselling

Private Practice counselling and therapy has a great deal to contribute to the lives of the people it serves. In consultation with the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy Private Practice Executive Committee, Patti Wallace, BACP Lead Advisor Private Practice, has produced a briefing paper on the specific contribution of private practice counselling. We feel this document really articulates effectively why people choose to engage with private counsellors and therapists and the valuable contribution private counselling services make not only to individuals but to the wider community.

You can download the paper here

The Conclusion of the document is reproduced below.

Private practice counselling makes a significant contribution to both prevention and intervention in relation to psychological distress and mental illness in the general population. In order to ensure the greatest benefit to the client, it is important that the public and other professionals are aware of its value relative to statutory and voluntary sector provision, and have the knowledge to access and refer to private practitioners where appropriate to the client’s circumstances.
