Eva Huckle MBACP
I am a fully qualified counsellor and coach with a private practice in Chiswick Park, West London.
How counselling can help
Counselling is a very personal process. It is the opportunity to release thoughts and emotions in a safe, neutral environment with someone outside your usual circles, whom you can trust to keep things entirely confidential.
Articulating your difficulties and working with a sensitive professional, who is trained to use a variety of skills can help you understand yourself better and see things from a different perspective. Counselling can help you make sense of your past and how it might be affecting your life. It can also help heal deep inner wounds and bring restoration and a greater sense of peace.
As an integrative counsellor, I draw on a wealth of resources to meet your own specific needs. My approach is flexible and creative. Aspects of established therapeutic models such as Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy are incorporated, as appropriate. We will also look together at your present and past influences.
A key to therapy is the development of new perspectives, attitudes and ways of relating to ourselves and others in order to live in a freer, more productive way. I offer an empathic and non-judgmental space where you can connect with and make sense of your deeper thoughts and emotions and change any unhelpful behavioural patterns triggered by negative thought processes. This can help you develop more self-confidence and self-awareness, a stronger sense of your personal identity and positively influence your personal, social and professional relationships. Counselling can also help you find direction and purpose and positively influence your hopes and dreams for the future.
Finding a counsellor and beginning counselling can be a daunting experience and it is my goal to make it as clear and collaborative a process as possible, be it for short term counselling of 6 -12 sessions or a longer process of open-ended counselling.
My overall aim is to be a source of support, hope and encouragement in order to help you live a more fulfilled, joyful and contented life.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss your individual needs, to ask any questions or to book an introductory session with no ongoing commitment.
Training, qualifications & experience
My counselling experience has been enriched by my background in the corporate world. Prior to working as a counsellor I was a partner in a leading family and matrimonial law firm in the City of London, practising as a solicitor and collaborative family lawyer for over 12 years.

I have considerable experience in working with people who are in crisis, going through divorce, separation, having relationship/family issues or are struggling over difficulties concerning their children.
