The Way Consulting - Larry Watson Registered MBACP
13-15 Great Scotland Yard
I am a vastly experienced counsellor working with people to address personal issues and as a coach addressing professional issues. As such I am able to bring a depth of understanding of the personal, often private, pressure living today brings.
I first qualified in relationship counselling having trained with Relate and now have decades of experience enabling clients to develop better relationships, in all settings, including with themselves. Feedback from clients confirms that my non-judgemental interventions have impacted significantly in both their personal perception of themselves and their developing ease in the world, empowering, enabling and motivating them to know that they can experience life in a positive manner.
My work is driven at your speed, metaphorically I walk alongside you on your journey, facilitating your recognition of how to develop the life you want. I can support you in this, identifying where change, often in thinking and perception, can support you.
I have facilitated numerous workshops on better relationships for home and work situations, dealing with the negativity of abuse, violence, discrimination of all types, inclusion and exclusion, bullying, personal bias, unfair dismissal and redundancy, stress, anxiety, depression, communication, respect, recognition, validation and love.
How counselling works
When we know better we are able to do better which is when life starts to change for the better. When we become more aware, we value ourselves and know where our boundaries are, and become clearer on what is acceptable and what is now intolerable and, importantly, understand how to manage both.
Issues I have dealt with
I have supported clients through, relationship improvement and staying together, domestic abuse prosecutions, divorce proceedings and employment tribunals followed by their return to the new normal life they have achieved.
I work with clients on Skype, telephone and face to face sessions. The sessions are confidential unless it appears that harm or injury may be caused to yourself or another, at which point confidentiality if renegotiable. I am an accredited registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) abiding with their professional guidance and boundaries in working with clients.

A quote from a client on conclusion of our sessions defining his new understanding of happiness - 'enjoying participation without expectation'. He had found life threatening in the past and been unhappy so had avoided much of life, after sessions this was his way of being able to integrate with others by being OK within himself and being able to participate without expectations so no threat.
A testimonial from a client :
As a counsellor he is very good at drawing ones attention to what matters in terms of a client’s developmental needs without being critical or judgemental.
He answers questions honestly, tactfully and consistently. There have been times when as his client, I have been extremely traumatised and a wrong word or careless tone could have pushed me over the edge. He always managed to move me forward, improving, learning and developing successfully. He has a highly developed level of sensitivity, awareness, and self awareness. I can see though, that he is no push over and can be very strong when needed.
