Hi my name is Jason Lawrence, I am a Qualified Therapeutic Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I am a Registered Member of the BACP.
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, 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 your going through.
In the past I have worked with clients with learning and physical disabilities, Asperger's, 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 judgmental support.
I am fully insured and hold a current DBS Certificate.

FirmRock Men's Support Group
FirmRock Men's Support Group meet on a monthly basis. These sessions are designed to give men the time, space and discreet, secure and confidential environment to be able to air the issues that concern them without fear of judgement or prejudice.
Group settings are a great way of airing your issues and getting positive feedback from your peers, as everyone has similar issue so, No question is irrelivant, No topic is taboo and No problem is too small!
Men that have attended the group have numerous issues that have caused stress related problems, these include:
* Anger / Rage,
* Sexual Orientation,
* Substance Abuse,
* Lone Parent,
* Father / Guardian of children with ADHD, Autism and Disabilities,
* Weight Issues,
Attendees come from all walks of life, have differing careers and are culturally diverse, but one thing they all have in common is the fact that they all support each other.
This group is run as a voluntary not for profit organisation, and is free of charge, however we understand that some people may want to contribute in someway, in which case you can make a donation, any proceeds will go back towards the general running of the group.

Photos & videos
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 60 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,
