Ben Cowlin MSc. MBACP (Reg)
I am a professionally qualified psychodynamic counsellor experienced in working with a wide range of emotional and personal difficulties.
Approaching counselling for the first time can be anxiety provoking so I offer an initial assessment session in order for us to talk about your reasons for seeking support.
I then offer weekly 50-minute sessions on either a short-term or ongoing basis.
Psychodynamic counselling provides a safe non-judgemental space for you to talk about your difficulties and aims to explore how past experiences impact on the present. Working with a counsellor can help you to develop a better understanding of your feelings and patterns of behaviour.
My consulting room is based in Streatham and is easily accessible by public transport (Streatham and Streatham Common train stations, 109/ 250/ 50 bus ) and car.
