Stephen Glover MBACP, PGDip
Hi, I'm Stephen, an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist based in Kennington, SE11.
Sometimes we all need a space to explore our feelings, emotions and thoughts. My goal as a therapist is to help you to find new ways to resolve issues and make more informed choices in your life. As an integrative therapist, I tailor my approach to each client, drawing on a range of therapeutic approaches and techniques to improve wellbeing and self-awareness.
I have helped people who were:
- feeling anxious, depressed or low in self-confidence
- experiencing relationship, work or career issues
- questioning or struggling with their sexuality
- at a crossroads in their life and seeking a more fulfilling future
Our time together
In our first meeting, an initial consultation, we will look at what brings you to therapy and explore what you hope to gain. I will be interested in finding more about you and you will be able to ask about how I work.
Should we decide to work together, sessions will last fifty minutes and take place at the same time each week. There is no rule about how long therapy should last - it can range from a few weeks to a number of years and it is always your choice as to how long you wish to keep coming.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Post Graduate Diploma (Distinction) in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy and have been working as a therapist for more than three years with adults of all ages.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). The BACP is the largest professional body representing counsellors and psychotherapists in the UK. They set the standards, values, and ethical guidelines by which therapists work to. I am committed to regular continuing professional development to keep me up to date with current practice.
As part of my therapeutic approach I draw on my experience of person centred and psychodynamic theory and of cognitive behavioural therapy.
Here are examples of some issues I have worked with:
- Anxiety and fear, including panic attacks
- Sadness and depression
- Low self-esteem or confidence
- Lack of fulfillment
- Sexuality and sex-related problems
- Relationship and family issues
