Ron Bushyager MSc., MBACP (Accred.), BPC
1 Royal Exchange Avenue
I am a fully qualified psychodynamic counsellor with significant experience in private practice therapy. I work with individuals experiencing relationship issues, anxiety, depression, family issues, or who simply feel ‘stuck’ in their circumstances and are seeking a safe space. As I practise in the City of London I am familiar with issues related to work stress and other professional challenges. Most of my work is longer term, but I can offer short term therapy (8-12 sessions) if this is felt to be appropriate. My approach is to explore the root causes of issues in the context of a supportive relationship. I am committed to giving each person I see a thoughtful and professional experience of therapy.
Through my training (MSc, Psychodynamic Counselling & Psychotherapy) and experience, I have been granted membership of two UK professional counselling registers. I am an Accredited Member of the BACP (counsellor/psychotherapist) and a Registered Member of the BPC (psychodynamic counsellor). I maintain the ethical guidelines of both professional registers.
As part of my commitment to clients, I am dedicated to Continuing Professional Development, as well as clinical supervision for all my counselling work.
Please be in touch by phone or email if you would like to discuss counselling with me. I work from both Central London and Dorking in Surrey. Both counselling rooms provide a comfortable environment and a confidential space.
I begin all counselling work with an initial assessment, at which point we can jointly decide if therapy with me is the right course of action for you.

Each regular session is 50 minutes. The fee is £60 in Twickenham and Dorking, and higher in central London (£65-£85).
The initial assessment takes the form of two 50-minute sessions, and is the beginning of all my counselling work. It has a separate one-off cost which varies by location.
My previous background is in Christian work. My therapeutic training and counselling approach are both non-religious, but I am experienced in working with issues of faith in the context of psychotherapy. I continue to offer occasional workshops or training to theological colleges and retreat centres, exploring how spiritual beliefs interrelate with personal growth and development.
As a psychodynamic counsellor I see individuals from various and diverse backgrounds irrespective of faith, gender or sexuality.
