Linda Wilkes BA (hons) Registered MBACP
Kingston Upon Thames
I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor working in private practice in Kingston. I offer both short term and open-ended counselling within a safe, accepting and supportive environment. Here you can take the time and space you need to explore the questions, challenges, patterns of behaviour concerning you, in order that you might understand them better and grow through them to a more peaceful place that offers you more choices in your life.
I am integratively trained which means that I can draw on a range of therapeutic approaches, depending on your needs. It also means that I recognise the power and healing nature of the relationship between you and your counsellor in helping to deal with current issues and past hurts, that life might move on.
My practice is a short walk from central Kingston, close to bus stops served by the 281, 406, 418, K2, K3, 71, 515. Surbiton and Kingston stations are a 15 minute walk or short bus ride away. There is metered parking available.
I currently offer daytime sessions Monday-Friday.
