Ben Cowlin MSc. MBACP (Reg)
I am a professionally qualified psychodynamic counsellor experienced in working with a wide range of emotional and personal difficulties such as depression, anxiety and relationship difficulties.
Approaching counselling for the first time can be anxiety provoking so I offer an initial assessment session so we can talk about your reasons for seeking support.
I then offer weekly 50-minute sessions on an on-going basis.
Psychodynamic counselling provides a safe non-judgemental space for you to talk about your difficulties and how experiences from the past can impact on the present. Working with a counsellor can help you to develop a better understanding of your feelings and patterns of behaviour.
My consulting room is based in Streatham and is easily accessible by public transport (Streatham and Streatham Common train stations, 109/ 250/ 50 bus ) and car.
