Barbara Church


Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Supervisor of Counselling


Hello, and welcome to my website.


I offer private counselling as a psychotherapeutic counsellor, working in a relational way using an integrative approach and model of therapy. I have been in practice since 2008 having previously worked in London, and I now work from premises in Wickford, Essex.


I also offer counselling supervision to qualified counsellors and those in training, and I have an active list of counselling clients and supervisees.


My integrative counselling diploma, degree and post-graduate level training, alongside on-going continued professional development (CPD), have enabled me to develop a range of knowledge and understanding about the different psychological techniques that may be useful during the counselling process. These include; the use of creative tools and metaphor; considering mindfulness approaches; using processes associated with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focussed Brief Therapy (SFBT) and Transactional Analysis (TA).


My training organisations are:

Barnabas Training International, Matrix College of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and Middlesex University:

Dip. Integrative Counselling

BSc (Hons) Integrative Counselling

PG Dip. Supervision of Counselling

Certificate in Couples Counselling


I am an organisational member of United Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and abide by their code of ethics as a registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor.


Having worked with clients from a variety of diverse backgrounds over a large number of years, I have gained extensive experience and have accumulated many hours of supervised practice working with different presenting topics during this time. These include: trauma; stress; spirituality; sexual abuse; separation and divorce; self harm; relationship issues; pregnancy and birth; obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD); miscarriage; low self esteem; family issues; eating disorders; depression; bipolar disorder; bereavement; abortion; anxiety.


I work with individuals and with couples, short-term face-to-face and long-term face-to-face (which includes regular reviews).
