Anthony Austin, Registered Member BACP.
I am an integrative counsellor using Person-Centred and Psychodynamic approaches. I work as a counsellor in private practice and at an NHS clinic in London seeing a range of clients and helping them with issues including bereavement, anxiety, relationship issues, depression, sexual dysfunction, loneliness, family relationships, anger management, work-place bullying and isolation.
I originally trained as an actor and have worked in many different industries including catering, financial services and journalism. I also trained and continue to work as a Shiatsu therapist and Qigong instructor. Working with Shiatsu has shown me how often psychological issues can be stored in the body and I have often found that bodywork can release hidden tensions and lead to greater psychological clarity and, vice versa, that exploring and processing psychological issues can have a profound effect on the body leading to a greater sense of well-being.

I look forward to working with you and helping you find the tools to live a happier and more fulfilled life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained as a counsellor at Lambeth college, in South London, between 2014 and 2017, completing a level 4 professional diploma in therapeutic counselling in June, 2017.
As part of my training, I undertook a placement at the West London Centre for Counselling, an NHS clinic in West London. Clients were referred to us via local GPs and the three years I have spent there has given me a wealth of experience in helping people address a wide range of common mental health issues.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and practice according to their ethical guidelines.
