JONATHON HOLMES ONLINE Counselling Available
I’m a Faversham based therapeutic Counsellor Dip. Couns. MBACP, within easy reach of Canterbury, Whitstable Ashford (and surrounding areas) in East Kent for person to person counselling. I also offer ONLINE Counselling for individuals wherever they're based.
My clients reflect society, from 18 plus through to those in their late 70’s and come from diverse social backgrounds, ethnicities and sexualities.
We predominantly meet for face-to-face counselling or in some circumstances clients prefer therapy via Skype, Zoom or FaceTime, or telephone. Housecalls (covering travel expenses) can be made by special arrangement.
For the last two years, my work has been with clients at MIND, the UK’s number one mental health charity. In addition, clients are now welcomed at my own private practice.
Fifty-minute sessions in person or ONLINE are usually open-ended (as opposed to specific in number) and clients are usually given the same time slot on the same day each week.
Sessions are collaborative and in confidence and follow the ethical framework laid out by the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
Our work together is empathic, non-judgemental and based on trust. You, the client, are the focus and centre of our therapeutic relationship.
Some thoughts on why counselling helps us all:-
- it’s an emotional investment which can positively impact personal fulfilment
- with a trained professional you’re heard objectively, empathetically and non-judgementally
- through therapy, you can learn to trust yourself, develop emotionally and grow stronger
Counselling - either in person or ONLINE is humanistic and integrates psychodynamic (looking to the past), person-centred and transactional theories and helps clients set their own achievable goals.

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.
