It's a simple question, but it rarely has a simple answer.
If you are feeling depressed or anxious, struggling to connect with others or even yourself, then we can navigate those issues together. As a BACP-registered counsellor, I can help you see how you can change the way you respond to them.
I offer sessions at London Bridge (SE1), Brixton (SW9) and via Zoom. I charge £60 for a 50-minute weekly session and offer a free half-hour initial appointment.
I am a humanistic counsellor, meaning I will work alongside you to explore your feelings, thoughts and behaviours to understand why you are reacting to situations in the way that you do.
My approach is fundamentally optimistic and non-judgemental, helping you to work with your own resources and strengths to manage the issues you face.
I know that counselling can be an intimidating experience, especially if you're not sure where to start. We can tailor how we work together to create a space in which can feel safe and secure to better reflect on your experience in greater depth.
You can find out more about how I work confidentially and safely, including what counselling sessions with me look like.
Found my site while browsing counsellor profiles?
Navigating counsellor profiles is not easy! I have written some advice on how to find the right person for you.
"I recommend you choose Andrew to work through whichever of life's unexpected challenges have landed in your lap. He took me from a terrible low, not only back to 'normal', but to a better, happier me."
"Working with Andrew was a real pleasure. I found almost everything he said to be insightful and thought-provoking. He has a particular strength in striking the right balance between being sympathetic and ensuring you address problems fully."

I am experienced in working with clients on issues such as the below. Often people aren’t really sure why they are looking for counselling, and that is something we can also explore together.
anxiety and stress
low self-esteem and confidence
sadness and depression
feeling overwhelmed or out of control
isolation and loneliness
difficulties relating to others
I have worked with a wide range of people, including a specialism working with LGBT+ clients. Whoever you are, we can shape how sessions look to what feels right for you.
