Bill Knightsbridge UKCP (Registered) working with Adults and Couples
I am an experienced, professionally qualified and registered counsellor working with a range of emotional difficulties on either an ongoing or a short term focused basis.
I offer a psychodynamic approach to therapy which looks at how past experiences may shape and influence our thinking in the present People come into counselling with a wide range of personal, emotional and relationship problems. A qualified and professional counsellor will work with you - towards creating a better understanding of the problems you face in your life.
I realise that it is not uncommon to feel a certain amount of anxiety and hesitation when first seeking therapeutic help. In this respect it may be useful to think about our first appointment as an opportunity to meet each other, and to explore how counselling might help and whether psychodynamic counselling is the right therapy for you at this time in your life.
Although my training as a counsellor encourages me to see life and its difficulties from a certain perspective - my experience, working both privately and in the NHS, has taught me the value of approaching each client as a unique individual, rather than simply as a textbook model.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the WPF Counselling and Psychotherapy institute in London, recognised as one of the leading training organisations in the UK. I graduated with 'The Advanced Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychodynamic Studies'. I am a member of 'The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy'.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I work with a wide range of emotional difficulties. However, as a counsellor based in London I am particularly interested in the experience and associated problems of living in a large City. Issues around: education, work and career, and uncomfortable feelings such as loneliness, anxiety, or social isolation.

Fees for regular weekly sessions will usually be around £50 and can be discussed when we meet. However, I offer reduced fees for the personal therapy of Counselling and Psychotherapy trainees.
My consulting room is situated in a quiet street nearby to Tooting Common and Tooting Bec underground station in South London. Parking is available and it is conveniently placed for public transport. Wheelchair access.
