Tony Chapman

Counsellor & Psychotherapist

I have experience working with a multitude of issues in both private practice, agency settings and within the National Health Service. I have experience of intensive long-term and short-term, solution focussed work.

I have undergone a complete change of lifestyle, embracing a second career in therapeutic counselling. Prior to my training I worked as a company Director based in London for many years. My enthusiasm for counselling and psychotherapy and their power to enable positive change in people’s lives has been enhanced by both my personal experiences and a desire for deeper personal meaning.

A member of the National Counselling Society

Continued Professional Development

I have an on-going personal commitment to continued professional development as part of my own core beliefs as well as a requirement of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy’s Ethical Framework. I believe in working to professional standards and keeping myself informed about the latest developments in the field.
