Needing Space Counselling

Orpington BR6 & London SE6

About us

Do you need space and time to talk?

If so, we are here to offer you the time and space to explore your worries and concerns in a confidential and safe space.

About Us

In a busy world full of judgements and rules, Needing Space Counselling can offer you a space where your thoughts and worries will be heard, acknowledged, and respected. At Needing Space Counselling, we can provide you with a place where you will not feel judged and where you can feel free to express your deepest concerns.

Getting Started

We can appreciate that making the first step can be incredibly challenging. If you have not experienced any counselling or psychotherapy before it is understandable that you may be nervous about what to expect. Many people may find the idea of having counselling / psychotherapy daunting. If you would like to understand what it is we can offer you, and how it may help you, please contact us by following the link to make an appointment or click 'message us' above. We are currently working via telephone and online counselling, due to the current COVID 19 restrictions.

We will try to make your first consultation with us as comfortable as possible for you because we know it can be an unknown experience. During this initial consultation, we will work together to explore what has brought you to counselling. Having counselling with us will give to you the confidential, quiet, and ethically secure space you need to explore your concerns.

Our approach to Counselling and Psychotherapy

Drawing from our diverse experience of life and our professional training as counsellors and psychotherapists, we will support you in exploring the issues you bring. We will work with you to explore any past and current issues and stay with you on that journey until the time you feel ready to move forward.

We  work interactively with a wide range of clients from all backgrounds and age groups, all experiencing very individual and sensitive issues. Our experience incorporates work within the NHS, Educational and Special needs provision, private practice, and the charity sector, and draws from combined professional and registered training.

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.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.
