About me...

 Andrea Preston 

PGCE/BA Hons/Dip. Couns

As a professional and experienced psychotherapist, I can provide a safe, warm and supportive space, where you can talk freely without judgement, in total confidence. 

My own experiences, working in business, the voluntary  and education sector, has enabled me to help people cope with a range of life's ever evolving events, traumas and challenges.  As well as running a busy private practice, I also work with a private clinic in the South East, offering confidential therapy and support for professional footballers - current and in retirement. 

Qualifications

CPD - continual personal development is a key part of my role as a therapist - I attend regular courses, webinars and weekend training to ensure my practice remains updated and current.

As an active member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)  I am bound by their Ethical Famework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy (www.bacp.co.uk/ethicalframework)

I hold professional liability insurance and an Enhanced DBS.

 

 I am a busy working Mother and in my free time, I enjoy walking, reading, listening to Radio 4 and swimming. 

I like to recharge on mini breaks away with friends or family.  One of my favourite spots in the UK is Mudeford Quay in Dorset - a photograph I took features on my home page.
