Counselling and Psychotherapy

Asking for help may feel like a risk, but counselling, or longer-term psychotherapy, can make all the difference. Counselling can help you through the difficult times into greater happiness and awareness. 

Some of the many benefits of seeing a counsellor are:  

– Breaking out of the dead-end cycle of anxious thoughts and feelings.
– Dissolving the black cloud of depression.
– Letting go of difficult experiences and feelings in the past and moving on.
– Understanding yourself better.
– Regaining – or finding for the first time – a feeling of contentment about your life.

About me

There are so many different approaches to counselling. For the layperson, who simply wants some help, it can be confusing.   

My aim is to do what works for you. This may mean using specific techniques, for example Mindfulness and CBT, but my ‘therapeutic approach’ is grounded in the person-centred work of Carl Rogers. 

Carl Rogers was one of the forefathers of modern ‘humanistic’ therapy, in which therapy is seen as a partnership (rather than a doctor-patient relationship) for change and growth. 

“When I have been listened to and when I have been heard, I am able to re-perceive my world in a new way and to go on. It is astonishing how elements that seem insoluble become soluble when someone listens, how confusions that seem irremediable turn into relatively clear flowing streams when one is heard.”   

Carl Rogers, the founder of person-centred therapy.

With 20 years’ experience, I know that seeing a counsellor can create real and sustainable change. 

“Counselling with Stephen gently challenged my thoughts and preconceptions …It helped me greatly and led me to changes that I otherwise would not have had the energy or courage to make.” 

Ann, former client.

I’m an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, which regulates counselling practice in the UK. I’m also listed in their new BACP Register. 

 

To explore further, please have a look through my site (this is a good place to start). There are also articles on counselling approaches and problems on the BACP site and the Counselling Directory website. 

If you would like to ask me any questions, please give me a ring for a no-obligation free chat, or drop me an email. 

My counselling practice is at St Margaret’s House on Old Ford Road in Bethnal Green. It’s 5 minutes from Bethnal Green Tube Station, next door to York Hall and the Gallery Cafe is in the basement of the building.

I look forward to hearing from you!
