Stephen Glover MBACP, PGDip
Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at my page.
I am a friendly, qualified and experienced integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, working in Kennington, south London. I offer a safe, warm, confidential and non-judgmental environment in which to explore the emotions, feelings and thoughts that bring you to therapy.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by the organisation's code of professional ethics.
As an integrative therapist I tailor my approach to support the specific needs of each person I work with. I don't try to impose any fixed ideas or concepts, or offer advice. Instead I draw on a range of therapeutic approaches and techniques to best meet your individual needs. My goal is to help you find your own way to resolve issues and make informed choices that promote your well-being.
In our sessions I will help you explore and better understand your emotions, experiences and past choices. Together we will look at where you are in your life, consider where you might like to get to and look at the options you might have to get you there. Whatever you decide, I will listen with warmth, understanding and non-judgment.
We will work to build a trusting relationship that enables you to realise greater self-awareness and authenticity. In doing so I believe you will have the capacity to experience a more rich and meaningful life.
When you contact me
You can contact me by email, phone or text. I will always respond as quickly as possible and usually I suggest we have an initial session to see if what I offer is right for you.
Your first session
At your first session we will look at what brings you to therapy at this point in your life, explore what you hope to gain and get a sense of whether we feel we can work together. I will be interested in finding more about you and you will be able to ask about me and how I work. We can also address any concerns you may have about therapy. By the end of this first session we should be able to decide together the best way forward.
If we agree to meet again, sessions will take place at the same time and place each week. There is no rule about how long therapy should last - it can range from a few weeks to a number of years. We will regularly review how the therapy is progressing, and it will be your choice as to how long you wish to keep coming.
Through therapy you can learn more about who you are and understand the choices that have led you to where you are today. You will then be able to begin to make new choices and become more of who you would like to be.
