Irena Biedka-Whitton MBACP Accred - Psychotherapeutic Counsellor & Supervisor
Kingston Upon Thames
07914 937 864
Few things in life are certain and that in itself can be daunting - particularly when you're having, or have had, a challenging time. Fortunately, change is certain and often therapy can act as a catalyst for positive change.
Do you feel that you could benefit from a confidential, non-judgemental, space to explore your innermost thoughts and feelings? Are you having relationship problems or feel 'stuck'? Is your loss too much to bare and you can't see a way forward? Or, do you feel that you may be holding yourself back?
Everyone is an unique individual - with individual needs and wants. Therefore, I endeavour to offer each client a warm bespoke approach.
I am a very experienced Integrative-Relational Psychotherapeutic Counsellor; Couples Counsellor; and Supervisor. I have over 10 years experience working as a therapist and/or as a senior clinician for public and private sectors, including: EAPs; Motor Insurance; the NHS and Private Medical Insurance.
I offer short, or longterm, counselling for individuals and couples - in Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey. The practice rooms are located in the centre of Kingston - easily accessed by public transport - with near-by car parks.
