About me

Hello. My name is Jonathon Gadenne (he/him). I am a qualified and experienced integrative humanistic counsellor. I hold a BSc in Humanistic Counselling from Middlesex University and a Clinical Diploma in Humanistic Counselling from the Metanoia Institute. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework. This means that I work within their strict professional guidelines. I am a fully insured practitioner.

I strongly believe in the dignity of all human beings, based on respect and value for an individual’s human rights, cultural and social differences and beliefs. I have had the opportunity and privilege to work with a wide range of people, and continue to welcome clients of all ages, all genders, sexualities, religious beliefs, and minority ethnic backgrounds.

I take a special interest in LGBTQ+ issues, and how society constructs gender and influences behavioural expectations.

Training, qualifications & experience

The foundation of my approach is our therapeutic relationship, establishing and developing a meaningful bond, that’s is both non-judgemental and compassionate yet, robust enough to be honest and authentic, in order to grapple with difficult and uncomfortable issues or emotions. This happens at an appropriate pace that you can manage.

Working collaboratively, we will explore your subjective experience, and develop your self-awareness around the issues and problems that you are experiencing. We will consider past experiences to see if those ways of doing things are still useful today. Updating these strategies may be necessary for dealing with life in the here and now. Discovering and develop your personal strengths will help unlock your full potential and new possibilities and identify your own resources leading to autonomy.

As well as my private practice, I have clinical experience in the NHS, offering solution-focused therapy via their iatpus program. I also have specialist training in bereavement and loss counselling and continue to work for an NHS hospice. I have further experience in supporting clients with mental health issues relating to addiction and dependency.

As an integrative humanistic counsellor, I draw upon a wide range of psychological therapies so that my approach is tailored to your needs. I employ different modalities including, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt Therapy, and Person-Centred Counselling. These models are underscored by my belief in a holistic approach, of mind, body and spirit.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
