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.

Therapy in Nottingham using Counselling Services Nottingham’s Referral Process

Accessing Self Referral Therapy 

To access self referral therapy in Nottingham or online is a simple process.

We accept Self referral, referrals from Employee Assistance Programs, Doctors and other professionals.

Andrew Harvey, counsellor, is a registered and approved provider for many of the UK’s leading private medical insurers, including , Vitality Health, Aviva, AXA PPP and Aetna Global Benefits. Before commencing counselling funded by health insurance you should check with your provider.

As the first point of contact, we ask that you email or call. We are sometimes able to offer urgent appointments.  The important thing is that if you yourself are looking for or considering counselling,  you don’t need a Doctor or anyone else to refer you to access our private and confidential counselling service, all you need to do is to make contact. We offer prompt access to counselling and therapy, where possible at a time to suit you. You can choose between face 2 face, telephone or SKYPE.

If you are looking for self referral therapy in Nottingham and we are unable to help as a matter of policy, Counselling Services Nottingham will refer where possible to other organizations and individuals when appropriate. It should be noted that a referral is not the same as a recommendation and/or endorsement of any service or individual; at all times clients should examine their options and make their own informed decisions.

As an organization, we keep a database of relevant contacts and will always seek to offer assistance where we can. We may be willing to write referral letters and make formal introductions/referrals when requested. A charge may be payable for doing this (this will be agreed before any work undertaken).
