Tom Godsal UKCP (Reg.) MBACP
I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist offering short and long term therapy to adults on an individual basis and provide a safe, containing space in which you may feel able to explore your thoughts and feelings in confidence and without fear of being judged. I use an integrative approach to psychotherapy when working with clients. I draw from my training in psychodynamics, CBT, humanistic and existential psychotherapy.
I have worked with a great variety of people from diverse backgrounds and with a wide range of issues. I have experience working with people suffering from:
- panic attacks
- relationship issues
- trauma and abuse
- addictive behaviours
- sexual difficulties
- sexual identity
- work related issues
- low self-esteem
- and people experiencing a lack of meaning in their lives.
Life can often be confusing, contradictory, and at times extremely difficult. At any stage one can be faced with feelings of sadness and loneliness. You may feel lost and uncertain and things may seem meaningless. Existential psychotherapy endeavours to address these questions whilst taking into account the uniqueness of each individual and his or her specific individual needs.
People seek therapy for a variety of reasons, some have had negative childhood experiences, for others it maybe a moment of crisis or a wish to improve their relationships. If you would like to explore any of these issues or are in need of support please do contact me.

I reserve a limited number of appointments for students and individuals on low-income where the fee will be set appropriately and agreed by both parties.
When you initially make contact, we will arrange a time for an introductory session to discuss your situation. This will give us an opportunity to meet each other before deciding if we would like to work together. It will also be an opportunity for you to ask me any questions or concerns you may have about starting therapy. We can also discuss details about future appointments.
I am also able to meet clients on Skype.
