Manda Glanfield, experienced and accredited counsellor
11-12 Tokenhouse Yard
Hello, welcome to my profile. My name is Manda Glanfield and I am a qualified, accredited counsellor with an established private practice in the city and south east London.
I provide confidential counselling to individuals suffering with depression, anxiety, workplace stress, relationship issues, bereavement and loss, family issues, eating disorders, abuse, self harm, suicidal ideation, fertility issues, women’s issues, LGBT issues, existential issues, shame and identity. Or you may be feeling lost, stuck or in distress, feeling that your normal support networks and coping methods do not seem to be bearing up.
I can help you explore and seek answers to whatever problems, difficulties or obstacles are stopping you move forward with your life. I offer short or long term counselling, tailored to your needs, from my base in the city (EC2) and from my home in West Norwood (SE27). I have appointments on Mondays through Fridays, daytime and evening.
You may have had counselling before, or this may be your first tentative exploration. Either way, have a look through my profile to find out more about what counselling with me is like, how it works and whether my therapeutic approach feels right for what you are looking for.
Feel free to contact me by phone or email to ask questions or make an enquiry.
What I Offer
- Person Centred Counselling
- Existential Therapy
- Face to face
- Individual counselling
- Short and long term counselling
Sessions are usually weekly, lasting 50 minutes. We start with an initial consultation to explore what has brought you to therapy and what you are looking for. We then decide together how many sessions to start with (usually a minimum of 6) and review the therapy at regular intervals to ensure you are getting the most out of your therapy.
How I work
I work as a person-centred counsellor, which means that I am non-directive: I work with what you bring. This may be thoughts, feelings or whatever you bring with you into the counselling space. I listen, without judgement, and try to get a sense of how things are for you, in the world and in your life. I work ‘in the moment’. I do not direct, give advice or diagnose. In counselling, the work is for and about you: it is unlike any other relationship in that I am there purely to support you towards your goal.
I help you reconnect with what you have lost: your own sense of who you are, where you want to be and how to get there. The work takes place through the therapeutic relationship that is formed, which helps you to find your own best answer.
What to expect
An enquiry from you will normally lead to a telephone call from me, in which we can look at what is bothering you and what you are looking for. I will also be able to answer any questions you may have about how I work. If therapy with me feels appropriate to what you’re looking for, we will then book an initial consultation. In this first session, as well as completing some assessment paperwork, we will be exploring further what has brought you to therapy, and what you want to be the focus of our work. If you decide to go ahead with further sessions we will then discuss and agree a framework including number of sessions.
My work is clinically supervised and I undertake regular CPD (continuing professional development) to ensure my working knowledge is relevant and up to date. I abide by the BACP's Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
Daytime and evening appointments available, Monday to Friday.

I have 10 years experience of individual counselling, both in the public and private sector, with adults, children and young people. I have worked in the NHS and spent many years working as a young person's counsellor at a therapy service in Medway. I have worked in schools and I currently work as a Community Counsellor at a children's centre in Greenwich. In former years I worked in a creative role in the music business, so have a great deal of understanding of the stresses of working under pressure.
