Stephanie Bushell MSc MBACP (Snr Accred)
07521 070 522
I am a BACP senior accredited integrative counsellor who combines a robust theoretical training with warmth, kindness and insight.
I am trained integratively which means that I have expertise in psychodynamic, person-centered and cognitive behavioural approaches. My usual approach is traditional 'talking therapy' but I am also open to using the arts and creative methods to express things that are hard to put into words (if that is something that you as the client are comfortable with).
How I Work
Counselling is about entering into a safe relationship with a non-judgemental person where you can be honest and vulnerable about who you really are and explore the aspects of your life that feel as if they're blocking you from reaching your full potential. It's you that sets the pace and it's you that chooses what you're ready to share and explore.
How Counselling can Help You
I believe in counselling as a way of getting to the heart of what drives a person to do and feel the things that they do, and to unlock new and healthier ways of living. The applications of it are endless and the potential for positive change is enormous.

My practice is about 10 minutes walk from either Peckham Rye or Queens Road Peckham stations. It is directly opposite the bus station so there are buses stopping there from all over London.
On street parking outside is metered but there is free parking a couple of streets away.
The room is on the fourth floor but there is a lift so it is suitable for wheelchair access.
I also offer counselling via Skype at the same price.
