Stefan King, PGDip, BACP Registered.
As a Londoner by birth and previously a gardener by profession, I know that our personal problems can feel overwhelming. My personal experience is that what we perceive as a challenge, problem or 'dead end road' can become a starting point for new strength and a better understanding of ourselves. “The shit can become gold”, and my training and experience as a practicing counsellor has validated and confirmed this wee snippet of folk wisdom a hundred times over and continues to tickle and inspire me on a daily basis.
As a qualified Psychosynthesis counsellor my approach involves bringing a shared understanding of what is going on for you, and to help reveal and then tackle the obstacles standing in your way.
I offer you the support you might need, the guidance you seek and will walk alongside you on this journey.
Many of us wish to feel more in charge of our lives, have a better perspective on who we are and what we want to achieve in life. Perhaps we wish to deepen our relationships and enjoy the company of friends and family more. My approach focuses on what we can be in this present moment, with a forthright acknowledgment of the past, and a realistic sense of optimism for what we can become.
My personal view is that therapy is an investment in the future, one which encourages personal development, and which once started, will increase our levels of awareness and the skills necessary to meet and deal graciously with life’s inevitable challenges. Looking for the support of a counsellor is the first step in taking responsibility for such an investment.
Psychosynthesis counselling aims to reveal where we hold ourselves back, to explore our potential and engage our will in making the changes we so often desire. As a transpersonal therapy it is known to be helpful if you are struggling with low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD and workplace or relationship issues.
Our first meeting will be an opportunity to have a conversation about what you would like from therapy, to share your reasons for seeking help and to decide if this is the approach you want to take.
