Getting started with counseling couldn't be easier. Simply reach out to us, and we'll set up an assessment tailored to your needs. This initial meeting is your chance to openly discuss your concerns and goals for counseling.

And here's the best part: there's no pressure to commit. If you decide to continue, we'll schedule regular sessions with a dedicated counselor. After six weeks, we'll review your progress together and chart the best course forward.

Don't let another day slip by without taking action towards a happier, healthier you. Reach out today and take the first step towards a brighter tomorrow!

Honeysett Counselling operates out of a well-established clinic in Ashford, Kent, which offers disabled access, free parking, restroom facilities, and a comfortable waiting area. Additionally, a reduced rate is offered for student counselors who are in training to become counselors or psychotherapists.

Furthermore, there are currently several openings for lower-cost therapy sessions with the final year students, Sam and Mark who are available for both in-person and online sessions.

The well-being of clients is always the top priority, and the team is here to support every step of the way. If there are any questions or if you'd like to schedule an assessment, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Currently along side my counselling training I am employed as a one-to-one SEN TA at Five-Acre Wood School, where my main responsibility is supporting a child with ASD and a PDA profile.

Dealing with Pathological Demand Avoidance demands various essential skills, including patience, understanding, excellent communication abilities, and the capacity to comprehend conscious and unconscious behaviours.

I have amassed over 25 years of experience in Retail
Management, predominantly with House of Fraser. Throughout my career, I have managed many diverse groups of people and grown greatly as a competent and secure leader. 

Mark RIchards (Final year student) 

Level 2 Counselling Skills (CPCAB).
Level 3 Counselling Studies (CPCAB).
Level 4 Diploma in Counselling Skills and Theory (MNCS).
Level 5 Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling Practice (MNCS). (Ongoing)

Working with children as they intuitively explore and engage with the world around them, just starting out in their journey of life, has taught me a lot about patience and what it means to truly listen and understand.

I have learned a lot from the wealth of experience and wisdom shared by older generations, who have negotiated much of life's ups and downs, emphasizing the value of empathy, compassion and authenticity.

As someone who is in the middle stages of this journey of life, I understand what it feels like to be lost and uncertain about the path forward, with no clear direction. I’m here to use my own experiences to support others through this journey, walking alongside them until the path becomes clearer.

Member organisations *

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.

Other areas of counselling we deal with

Anger issues, Orthorexia, Obesity and Bariatric surgery.
