Owen Redahan. MBACP. B.Sc.(Agr)
Is it difficult for you to talk to friends or family about certain issues? Perhaps you have difficulties in forming relationships and this makes you feel embarrassed? Maybe there's something about you that you don't want them to know about? For example, you have low self esteem, having relationship difficulties or feel you're looking too much at internet porn?
This is when counsellors, like me, may be able to help. I work with individuals who have problems that make them anxious and who feel there is no way forward. But there usually is.
Between us we find solutions that work for you. I won't judge or criticise. My counselling method is person-focused which means you decide what issues you want to raise and in what detail. The majority of my work is also carried out using 'short term, solution-focused' therapy which can achieve fairly rapid results.
Every day I see people who have, amongst other things, relationship issues, anxiety issues, trouble with the loss of loved ones, low self-esteem, and sexuality questions. I carry out couple counselling for those who want to sort out relationship problems and also work with individuals of all age groups.
My offices are conveniently placed in East London (E14) serving - SE21, SE24 and E15 and people from other areas mainly working in Canary Wharf and Stratford. I am also happy to see clients from further afield.

Training, qualifications & experience
I became a counsellor later in life having lived through a number of personal challenges. Having found counselling useful myself I wanted to use my life experiences and training to support others.
I hold a Diploma in Counselling and a BSc (Agr). I have also worked over 30 years in the communications field. My background of working in non-profit organisations and private companies helps me look to solution focused counselling when appropriate. I also use this experience when career counselling.
I have been awarded a BACP Certificate of Proficiency. I am also a member of the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity (ATSAC)
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
The successes I have seen in part have come from working in a relaxed, controlled and private environment, where clients can examine where they currently are at and explore with me, ways of resolving their problems. Where appropriate I also work in a 'coaching' role, this is particularly successful with couples and looks at ways people can improve their lives in the future.
I have helped, and continue to to help, young adults who have issues around lover and friend rejections, poor belief in themselves, accepting their sexuality whatever it may be, different sex desires to their peers and shyness.
Some older adults can have difficulties in these areas and this is complicated by the feeling that at their age (mid 20's and 30's) they should have sorted their lives out already and what will people think of them. I work through those issues with them and help them find the solutions that are applicable to their lives.
I also work with individuals who are looking for career counselling and want to develop either within their chosen area of expertise or to explore new work challenges.

My fees are £80 for individuals and for couples it is £110.
The first meeting is more of an exploratory period to ensure that I am the right counsellor for you and to make sure I feel that I can help. This is important because the bond between you and me is vital to helping you change and move forward. I look forward to hearing from you.
