Darren Clayson - Experienced Psychotherapist and Counsellor
I help all kinds of people with all kinds of issues and you should never think that what you're feeling is unworthy of therapy.
I’m passionate about helping people overcome their problems and achieve the change they are looking for in their lives. I never judge clients but I’m also not afraid, when it’s in their interest, to challenge them. Each client teaches me something new about therapy and life in general. For me, therapy is very much a partnership – a road along which both I and my clients travel.
I’m fascinated by people and how life affects their mental health in different ways. I worked from an integrative perspective and adapt my approach based on the client and their issues. I have experience across a broad range of mental health issues. Much of this experience I’ve picked up during my 18 years in the health psychology and medical industry.

Areas of counselling I deal with
The price for all sessions is £60. This should be paid at the end of the session.
I mainly work with clients face-to-face from a private studio at my home. I can also work with clients via video or phone if preferred. The easiest way to get started is to give me a call on 07716642575 or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
During the initial session together we will discuss your issues at your own speed and then if you feel comfortable working with me, we will arrange a second session. There is never any pressure to sign up for a set number of sessions and we can tailor the frequency of sessions to your needs and schedule.
All sessions last 1 hour.
