Caspar van Dongen, MBACP Reg. - Individual, Couple, Young People Counselling
Hello, my name is Caspar and I work as a Counsellor within my private practice in Stamford for Individuals, Couples and Young People.
You may be troubled by a situation you can't resolve, finding change hard or feel as if you've lost yourself. I offer a personal space for your most personal concerns.
There are many other reasons you may be considering seeing a counsellor.
You may feel anxious, misunderstood, confused, emotional, depressed, low in mood, lacking in motivation...
Sometimes we need someone to talk to who will not judge us or make unnecessary comments.
I believe that my job as a counsellor is to listen and then to help you to help yourself.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I use a Person Centred approach to Counselling
The essence of a person centred approach is the belief that a person is capable of much more than he or she actually believes.
In your sessions, we shall aim to uncover this capability within you and use it to find possible solutions to the concerns you want to talk about.
As such, a person centred approach can therefore be successful in addressing a wide range of different concerns and issues.
I have not specialised in one particular area, but have worked with concerns in relation to bereavement, stress, redundancy, abuse, anger, general anxiety, anger, bullying, domestic violence, suicidal thoughts, hearing voices etc
Obviously we shall also give you all the additional help, advice and practical tools within counselling, if that is helpful within the approach.
