About Counselling London Psychotherapy
Counselling & Psychotherapy in London, Camden, Kings Cross with Glen Gibson, BACP & UKCP accredited experienced professional counsellor & psychotherapist.
Working at your own pace from my London counselling practice in Camden and remotely online, I aim to bring clarity, creativity and sensitivity to my work with warmth, humour and maturity. With my passionate beliefs of self-determination and responsibility, I offer fresh insight in an affirming, supportive and jargon-free way. Having an impartial perspective, I usually work both intuitively, with knowledge, experience and understanding of what is happening for you. I recognise people can't simply be reduced down to a diagnosis, symptoms or issues. Viewing the counselling as a joint exploration, I value the humanity in us all and acknowledge our own resources, qualities and strengths alongside our frailties, limitations, and vulnerabilities.
My role is to get to know you and for you to develop a greater understanding of yourself in a safe, confidential, supportive and jargon-free environment - a space for you to explore what you want to explore, also how you feel, think and act. Working at your own pace, I offer guidance and support so fresh ways of seeing yourself, the options and making choices become available. Alongside the issues you bring to counselling, we may look at where you would like to be in your life and what prevents you getting there, so far.
In my counselling & psychotherapy practice I bring together over 25 years experience of working with people. I have completed 5 years in-depth & practical training in psychosynthesis counselling & psychotherapy at The Institute of Psychosynthesis in London validated by The Middlesex University in London, drawn to it because it was described as a psychology of the soul. I have the following qualifications: Diploma in Counselling, Diploma in Psychotherapy & MA in Psychotherapy. My counselling training has given me a broad counselling knowledge, including Humanistic, Psychospiritual, Transpersonal Psychosynthesis models and others.

People come to counselling or psychotherapy for many important reasons - maybe going through a difficult period in life, having certain challenges, problems. We may be faced with what seems an insurmountable problem or situation and the counselling can help explore our options, choices and responses. Some counselling issues are specific, like relationship concerns, confidence and esteem, stress, fear, anxiety, procrastination, unhelpful habits or addictions, depression, bereavement, grief and others of a reflective, existential nature - many are usually both. The therapy focuses on you yourself, who and how you are, the issues you bring, their impact, why they are a problem to you, what they might be saying, mean for you, including your perspective, future potential, emerging purpose, and if appropriate, how you can overcome, manage them, what your next steps might be.
