Michael Broadbent - Psychodynamic Counsellor DipHE MBACP (Accred)
I offer one-to-one counselling to help with problems such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationship issues and low self-esteem. I believe that we all possess the inner strength to overcome out difficulties and counselling is a way of helping you to find and use this 'inner healer'. Counselling is a journey of discovery that may be enjoyable, enlightening, empowering but can also be painful as unresolved emotions are brought to light and processed. As a psychodynamic counsellor I provide an empathic setting where we can work together to understand the root causes of your difficulties and facilitate healing and growth.
I am particularly interested in working with survivors of child sexual abuse and other early life traumas and find that the psychodynamic approach is well-suited to these issues. I am also interested in working with LGBT people, particularly transgender clients.
My main locations are London Bridge and Chessington but I also have rooms in Epsom and Balham. I offer once-weekly sessions on an open-ended basis (i.e. as short or as long as is needed).Sessions are held at the same time every week and last for fifty minutes each.
