Andrew Jenkins MBACP (Accred)
Counselling and Psychotherapy in Hatton Garden, Central London
I recognise choosing a therapist can become tricky, with so many different theoretical approaches, specialisms, and claims to consider.
In my experience of over thirty years working with people in a caring capacity, and fourteen years as a psychotherapist, I have seen that what matters most is the quality of the relationship between client and therapist.
As therapist my role is to provide a safe and secure space, genuine compassion, resilience, and to notice what is really being communicated. Sometimes challenging, but always kind, we will work to bring understanding to what you find difficult in your life.
I consider myself an Eclectic Therapist. This isn’t the same as Integrative therapy, where several theoretical models merge, but one where I suggest which of several approaches we adopt based on your situation, and then we continue to work within that model.
My core training is psychodynamic psychotherapy. I completed this four-year clinical and academic training with wpf Therapy, followed by trainings in CBT, EMDR, systemic constellations, and organisational trauma. I have also completed long-term personal psychoanalysis.
This new approach in psychotherapy takes place whilst we walk together through the park, without the confines of a room. I bring the same levels of training, experience and insight into these sessions as I would during a traditional session, held in my consulting room.
We will spend the first session exploring what you need and both agree how best to proceed. We shall also agree how we manage confidentiality during sessions, should we, for example, cross paths with someone either of us knows.
We walk and talk, and in hearing your past story and current circumstances we shall look for patterns in how you relate, in what causes you distress, and in what brings relief. In doing so we aim to build your resilience and insight into your own inner world, and how you conduct relationships.

Supervision & training
In my experience, counselling and psychotherapy supervision is best when an environment is created where we can consider the whole picture: Your clinical practice, personal development, career development, as well as the most challenging aspects of the work we do.View supervision profile
