Dan Bennett, Counselling Psychotherapist. B.S.C hons, MBACP
Do you need to talk? Could you benefit from Psychotherapy Sessions based in London Bridge or Epsom and Ewell?
- Does life feel like its getting on top of you?
- Are you experiencing anxiety about what the future may hold?
- Do you feel stuck or could you benefit for counselling for depression?
- Have you lost a loved one or come to the end of a relationship?
- Do you have issues with addictive behaviour?
Psychotherapy and Counselling sessions provide a space to take a time-out in an impartial, non judgemental environment where you have the opportunity to talk freely about current and past issues in your life and may benefit you in a number of ways:
... to explore your thoughts and feelings and gain clarity.
... to get back on the front foot again
... to remove the blocks that are hindering your progress
... to feel understood in a non-judgemental space
... to harness your inner strength and resilience
... to cope better with the stresses and strains of everyday life.
I offer 50 minute Psychotherapy Sessions in London Bridge and Epsom and I'm committed to providing a safe, empathetic and non-judgemental space which provides an opportunity to explore your feelings about life and ways in which you have adapted and coped with some of your stressful or traumatic experiences.
I work integratively from a psycho-analytic and existential framework helping people and with whichever issues they present, some of which are:
- Addiction (s)
- Adoption (Parents and Children)
- Bereavement and Loss
- Depression and Anxiety
- Eating Disorders (Anorexia and Bulimia, Over-eating)
- Panic Disorder
- Relationships Issues
I work multi-culturally with people from all walks of life and emphasise with the differing challenges we all face. Through counselling we can reflect and learn from our experiences with the opportunity to transform and re-frame these into understanding that leads to emotional resilience, insight about unwanted and repetitive patterns of behaviour and thinking, creating a greater sense of inner peace and psychological well-being.
I aim to promote self-autonomy, self-understanding, independence and freedom from repeated patterns of behaviour and thinking, in a confidential, safe and reflective environment. This allows us to reflect upon our experiences so that the ways in which we relate to ourselves and others can be thought about with the opportunity to re-frame and change.
Counselling can also help with issues related to :
- Spiritual Growth
- Interpersonal and Communication Skills
My psychotherapy practice in London Bridge is within easy reach of Central London and is within easy walking distance of Borough, Elephant and Castle and London Bridge tube stations. My informal setting from home is a 5-7 minutes walk from Ewell West Train Station and a ten minute bus ride from Epsom and Ewell Town Centre. Both settings are easily accessible from both central London and mainline train stations such as Victoria, Wimbledon, Surbiton.
I highly recommend Dan as a Psychotherapist - he is a thoughtful, empathetic and caring counsellor and carries out his work with pride and professionalism with the aim of helping people to live a better quality of life, - Earl Pennycooke 2018
Dan has provided counselling for me in Epsom and Ewell over the past 3 years helping me to overcome, long term depression, the death of my Father, Childhood Trauma, and ongoing health issues that I have had for many years. The support he has given me during this time has helped to re solve a number of issues in my life and feel more confident about the future, helping me with my self esteem, confidence and self acceptance. If you are looking for emotional support I would recommend Daniel as a psychotherapist. - Hannah M 2017

How much do sessions cost?
Session prices are based upon affordability as I believe that everybody should have the opportunity to engage in counselling without it being inaccessible. I also offer a limited number of sessions per week as low-cost counselling for people on very low incomes or whom are receiving benefits due to unemployment or disability/illness.
- Individuals Sliding Scale: £40-65
- Couples Therapy: £65-80
- Low Cost Counselling: £20-35 (from home only)
I also see some clients on a 2-3 occasions each week as we work psycho-analytically, and cost can vary dependant on circumstances. The prices for this can be negotiated to reflect the frequency of therapy and to make it more affordable for individuals who wish to work in this way.
