Jason Lawrence DIP, Therapeutic Counselling. MBACP
Hi my name is Jason and I am a Professional, Full Time, Qualified Therapeutic Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
Every so often its useful to speak to someone who is unbiased and will help you find and implement a solution going forwards thats why I offer confidential counselling to Men, Women, Couples and Young People from all walks of life and from many differing circumstances.
During my time as a counsellor, I have supported people with an array of personal issues, anxiety, anger, relationship issues, bereavement, anger issues, gender dysphoria and depression to name but a few.
During my life I have faced many Hurdles and Challenges, some have been easy to tackle, others have knocked me for six, what I have realised is that these experiences have put me in a unique position to understand what you are going through.
In the past I have worked with clients with learning and physical disabilities, Asperger's, ADD, ADHD and dyslexia.
I work in accordance with the BACP code of ethics, which means you have reassurance that you will receive professional, confidential and non judgemental support.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Men Don't Talk Org Men's Support Group
Men are far less likely to seek medical support for a mental health problem than women, new figures reveal.
A survey commissioned by the Mental Health Foundation found that not only are men far less likely than women to seek professional support, they are also less likely to disclose a mental health problem to friends and family.
The YouGov survey, the largest of its kind, polling more than 2,500 people who have had mental health problems, showed 28% of men admitted that they had not sought medical help, compared with 19% of women.
The survey found that a third of women, compared with a quarter of men, had told friends or family about their mental health problem within a month of it arising. More than a third of men, compared with a quarter of women, either waited more than two years or chose never to tell friends or family about their problem.
Men have also the highest rates of suicide, a staggering 84 per week on average, that's 12 a day, or 1 every 2 hours........
and that to me is unacceptable,
I therefore founded "MenDontTalk.Org"
Men Don't Talk is a.....
- On line information sharing website, aimed to help men receive the information they need.
- Has a peer support website where men can chat to other men in who have been through the same or similar experiences.
- Conducts seminars and presentations aimed at educating men in mental health related issues.
- Conducts workshops where Men can address their issues without fear of ridicule.
- Attends debates & forums to highlight the effects of Male Mental health issues and the silence of men.
- Run fortnightly Men's support group meeting.
- Run Weekend Retreats.

I work from a comfortable and discreet office that has disability access just outside Dartford, set between South Darenth and Longfield, and there is private parking.
I offer a free no obligation initial meeting to see if you feel we could work together.
Counselling session fees are £45 for individual one to one sessions and £55 for couples counselling sessions, and all sessions are 50 minutes long.
I do offer reduced rates for student counsellors, and for people on low income.
During the initial meeting it will be a chance for you to talk about your current circumstance and we can discuss strategies going forwards, this will include frequency and duration of sessions, so you can be reassured you will not be attending for any longer than you need to.
I am flexible with my work patterns so I am sure we could find a time that's fits.
Please feel free to contact me further with any questions or queries that you may have,
