John Whelehan BSc MBACP MBPsS
Hi. Are you experiencing feelings of anxiety or dissatisfaction with life? Perhaps you are hoping to find and develop relationships that are more meaningful or have current relationship issues? There may be problems at work that require an impartial caring ear? You may be feel there are questions about sexuality that you would like to consider. It could be that you want to look at your general mood or maybe there is simply the need to unpick your thoughts. I have worked with a broad range of clients who have wanted to look at their experiences of; anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, relationship issues, panic disorder, depression, phobias, feeling sad, family issues, affairs and betrayals, separation and divorce, seasonal affective disorder (sad), bipolar disorder/manic depression, postnatal depression, addiction(s) & abuse. Often people come to therapy with a presenting problem, which once it has been worked on reveals a deeper need to focus on another aspect of their experience. In any instance, people often find that simply talking to another person about how they are feeling is helpful. I offer a non-judgmental and confidential service.
So what is on offer? Well to start with there is contact! In an increasingly hectic world, opportunities for regular, meaningful and active contact with others diminishes. Passive consumption of easily accessible media streams from digital and mobile technology has compounded this and feelings of detachment are commonplace.
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. I charge £40 for an initial assessment and £40 - £60 for subsequent sessions depending on income. Some concessions are available during the week if needed. Rates can be discussed over the telephone or during your initial assessment.
