Phillip Lawton-Jones: Dip Couns, NCS Accred, MBacp.
Stress, anxiety, worry, fear, sadness, confidence/self esteem, depression, grief/loss, anger/conflict, relationship problems can devastate your usual ability to cope, impacting on every aspect of your life. Emotional turmoil can be overwhelming, exhausting, leaving you feeling lonely, isolated and scared.
Need someone independent to talk with and listen to you to help you understand your thoughts and feelings? I have two private practices in Evesham and Cheltenham and can offer appointments during the daytime and evenings between 9:00 a.m & 8:30 p.m
I am a qualified Counsellor & registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). At the heart of my practice is the understanding that our relationship is the key component for successful therapeutic outcomes. With my therapeutic skills and my natural way of being, I will help you find peace and calmness to your current difficulties and a positive way forward in life.
How can counselling help?
Whilst many of us have supportive family and friends who can help with difficulties we face, at times, the closeness of these relationships can detract from our personal journey of growth and discovery. Whilst I appreciate that the thought of counselling may be a difficult step, we will walk the journey together. Offering a neutral perspective throughout sessions, we will explore any issues you wish to share. Providing a therapeutic relationship with honesty and empathy, we will explore any issue within a non-judgmental and confidential space at a pace which enables thorough reflection and scope for change.
What to expect in the first session?
Our first session will give you the opportunity to talk through your current difficulties. I appreciate a first session can be a little daunting. I will listen and support you through this and I will advise on the type of therapy that I would initially start with and how I propose we can work together. I do understand though that whilst some people will enter into a series of sessions, some clients may only want a one-off session to explore some of their difficulties initially.
This initial session will also give us an opportunity to decide together whether I am the most suitable therapist to support you.
