About me

Hello. My name is John Whelehan. I am a fully qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor.

The world we live in is hectic. As a result of this opportunities for regular and meaningful contact with others has deminished. Passive consumption of digital means we spend less and less time in direct contact with others, consequently a sense of detachment is commonplace. Interestingly many people report feelings of disconnection and loneliness even when surrounded by other people. Counselling can help to shine a light on the way we are living our lives and as a result of this the adjustments that could be made become more apparent.

People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons. These include feelings of anxiety, low mood and a general feeling of dissatisfaction with life. People also come to therapy to discuss feelings about sexuality that they would like to consider. Counselling can help by providing a safe confidential space to explore these questions.

Often the psychological work that a person ends up doing is different to the initial presenting problem. Psychotherapy can help to reveal underlying aspects of a clients experience. a safe and confidential relationship with the therapist can allow these deeper needs to come to the surface. Counselling can help us to understand the unconscious emotional processes in our psychology that can impact the way that we live.

My counselling practice is set in a quiet private and comfortable room in SW6 ( Fulham South West London ) and is with easy reach of the surrounding areas such as Putney, Chelsea, Earls Court, Hammersmith, Shepherds Bush, Kensington and the Central London area. There are disabled facilities here so if you have specific access needs please let me know so that I can make sure they are met. The counselling sessions last for 50 minutes and the work we do is dependent on what you want to discuss.

Initial assessments and subsequent sessions last for 50 minutes.

Assessments and Sessions in Fulham are £75.

Assessments and Sessions in Epsom are £65.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
