Andrea Blakeley, MBACP (Accredited)

I consider myself to have a warm and gentle manner with my clients, recognising that people need to feel comfortable and have a safe space before they can be open and trust the therapist.

I have been working with clients for a number of years and experienced different settings such as NHS Primary Care, Primary schools (staff and children), Key Worker Staff, Young Adult Carers and the Voluntary Sector.

I am in regular supervision for my clinical work which is essential to maintain my professional standards and I frequently participate in continued personal development (CPD) by attending relevant training courses and workshops which helps to keep my practice current.

I am fully insured and work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework which includes commitment to clients, ethics and good practice.
