Tony Henstock (MBACP)
There may be times in our lives that things seem difficult to cope with, or understand, or maybe we just need some gentle support with adjusting to changes beyond our control, or even in making positive choices for ourselves. Counselling can enable you to gain a clearer understanding of how and why you feel, think and act as you do. Counsellors do not give advice or tell you what to do. Counselling works by enabling and supporting you to explore and find your own solutions.
I will offer you the time, privacy and support required to explore aspects of your life you may feel you need to understand better or areas in which you would like to grow. Somewhere you can talk comfortably, knowing that I am impartial and unconnected with your everyday life and as someone with who you can share thoughts and feelings. I work in an Integrative Counselling approach which has the basic assumptions that we are naturally social beings with the ability and wish to relate externally to others and internally to ourselves.
Due to the significance of relationships in this approach, the therapeutic relationship between us will be central to the process of Counselling.
In addition to my Counselling and Psychotherapy practice, I have taught in a Further Education setting, delivering various Counselling courses. I currently lecture freelance in a Mental Health Trust NHS Hospital setting, delivering training courses in Community Mental Health.
I have worked for the NHS Sheffield Primary Care Trust in a GP Medical Practice offering brief focused Counselling, and for South West Yorkshire NHS Mental Health Trust, providing longer term 'secondary care' therapy in a psychiatric hospital setting.
I have also previously been involved as a volunteer with other 'helping' agencies including an under 19's project and The Samaritans.
I am an individual member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and as such am bound by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure for the time being in force.
