Cashel Riordan MBACP [Accredited & Registered]
I see that my role is to provide a secure confidential environment for you. One where you feel safe and where you can relax sufficiently to be able to talk about those things that are causing you some concern at this particular time. I will be supporting you to slowly begin to take some risks and be more of the person you want to be. I will be encouraging you to examine your personal history, feelings, thoughts and experiences to help you to discover your own way to move forward in your life.
I am an accredited and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy [BACP]. This means that in addition to a verified level of training and experience, I am also committed to ongoing training and working within the ethical framework of my profession.
Where do the sessions take place?
I work from an upstairs counselling room at my family home in New Malden near Kingston, where I am happy to see adults and couples plus young adults 16+. I work both short-term and long-term face-to-face for as long as you feel the need to see me. My theoretical approach is Person Centred which means that I focus on you as a person and all that makes you what you currently are.
New Malden mainline station is nearby + good bus connections. Trains and buses call at Wimbledon tube and train station and Kingston station both of which are about 6 minutes away
Who can I help?
I see clients from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds for many issues including couple counselling and relationship issues/affairs, separation and divorce. anxiety, generalised anxiety, depression, sexual issues/abuse, addictions and dreams and generally feeling sad.
I look forward to hearing from you...
