About me

Hi I'm Kevin. Thank you for taking the time to check my profile.

I am an integrated counsellor (meaning I use several styles of counselling to fit each individual client). This flexibility allows me to work with you to find the best way forward to suit your individual needs.

I have recently become an Anxiety UK approved therapist.

My experience with Brentwood MIND, Southend Carers and Changing Pathways mean that I have dealt with a multitude of different issues.

I work mostly in a way that allows you to explore your issues at your own pace ) however I can also use CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) for more solution focussed work and Transactional Analysis as appropriate depending on your needs.

I provide one to one counselling and I am willing to include walk and talk (particularly suited to depression). For those with mobility issues I am willing to assess home visits.

I am a registered member of the BACP (Reg. No. 251465) and as such I follow their ethical guidelines. (Their ethical framework can be found on their websitehttp://www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework/new_ef.php)

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified counsellor, registered with the BACP and working towards accreditation.

After completing their training package I am now also an Anxiety UK approved therapist.

I have worked as a volunteer at Southend Carers (caring for unpaid carers 2015-17),

Brentwood MIND April 2016- Aug 2017

And Changing Pathways May 2016 to September 2017.

Fees

My fees are £40/hour. Discounts are available for block booking (£35/session). (no more than 6 at a time).

I offer sessions to counselling students at a discounted rate of £25/session.

Further information

My current premises are not suitable for those with problems with stairs.

I take one sessions money in advance as a deposit against non attendance. This pays for a final session when the counselling comes to a conclusion.

Failure to advise at least 24 hours in advance would lead to the forfeit of the deposit.

Late arrival to a session does not mean that the session will be extended beyond the planned end time.
