Jonathan Kilcourse MBACP (Accred)
I am an experienced counsellor who provides a professional counselling and therapeutic service, held within a private and confidential space where both you and your experiences will be supported and listened to.
I predominately practice as a Person Centred Integrative Counsellor offering a warm, accepting and non-judgemental attitude whilst working creatively and sensitively with the whole of your experience.
Why choose me?
I believe that we all deserve to live meaningful and satisfying lives, and that we all have the capacity to do so. However, the pressures of life, a past or recent traumatic experience, death, old age or illness can generate difficult feelings, a sense of meaninglessness, disconnection or a general sense of dissatisfaction with life.
It's at these times that I can support you to make sense of your experiences, examine what you believe about yourself, your feelings, thoughts, attitudes and responses to others and the environment in which you live. The counselling process can support you to develop a deeper and clearer understanding of your experiences and provide you with the space to face the challenges that life presents.
My fee for an initial 50 minute consultation is £30. Subsequent sessions are £45.
I am happy to discuss concessions based on your personal circumstances, my aim is to agree on a fee which is sustainable for both parties.
I provide daytime and evening appointments.
Please telephone me for further details or to have an informal chat to discuss your situation in more detail.
