Russell Kendall MSc BSc(hons) Dip. Couns MBACP (Accred) . Supervision
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and I offer short and long term counselling to individuals. I also offer counselling to couples who are experiencing challenges in their relationship. I also run Mindfulness courses.
I appreciate how difficult it can be to start counselling. What can prompt an enquiry can differ from one person to another. For some there may be a long standing desire to talk to a counsellor, and maybe now just feels right. For others there maybe something that has happened in their life such as a breakdown in a relationship or a loss in their life that prompts a contact to be made. Alternatively, they may be consumed by feelings such as depression, anxiety, fear, anger or resentment.
Talking with a counsellor about your thoughts and feelings in a safe, trusting and comfortable environment can provide you with the space and time to share what is on your mind, and this process can open up different opportunities for change.
I specialise in Person-Centred Counselling, which puts the client(s) at the centre of the counselling relationship. I work at the clients pace and I trust that over time they will come to share how they are feeling and what difficulties they are experiencing; I am committed to work in a non-directive way without judgement. The personal qualities I bring to my work are sensitivity, openness and warmth, as well as respect for others and their individual values and beliefs.
As a counsellor I am also aware of my own professional development, and I often attend different training workshops as well as receive regular counselling supervision. I am fully insured and offer counselling from my home address, which is in a quiet residential area of Bognor Regis where I have a dedicated space for counselling. I very much welcome the opportunity of working with you.

Supervision for counsellors
I offer supervision to counsellors on a one to one basis. My approach to Supervision is Person-centred. I provide a safe and comfortable space for counsellors to explore their counselling relationships, the way they work with particular clients as well as how they take care of themselves. I work very closely to BACP code of ethics and provide on-goind support and guidance where it is required. supervision is fortnightly lasting one and half hours.
