Psychotherapist and Counsellor in Hampstead, North-West London
Most of us experience emotional difficulties at some point during our lives. At these times, we may turn to friends and family for help and support. But sometimes this is not possible, or not enough.
It can be hard to seek help - perhaps you think that you should be able to sort things out for yourself. Maybe you feel embarrassed or ashamed of not coping. Or maybe things seem so overwhelming you can't imagine how they could improve.
At this point, counselling and psychotherapy can help.
When considering working with a psychotherapist or counsellor, it is important to confirm that they are accredited by a recognised governing body. This ensures they have sufficient training and expertise, and are professionally and ethically accountable. I am a member of the UK's two main governing bodies, the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (bacp), and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (ukcp), with whom I am professionally accredited and registered as a psychotherapist and clinical supervisor.
My name is Andrew Sutton. I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor in North London, working with individuals on an open-ended basis. As your counsellor I will provide a safe and confidential space in which we can explore what is troubling you.
Painful or difficult feelings, repeated patterns of behaviour or troubled relationships will often have their origins in past experiences, but it is sometimes difficult to make the connection or to understand why these difficulties continue to affect our lives.
In our work together you will develop a deeper understanding of how your past relationships and life experience continue to influence and affect you. This understanding can help in processing of thoughts, feelings, beliefs and behaviours, enabling and supporting you to make positive and lasting change
I am experienced in helping clients who have encountered a wide range of difficulties, including:
My North West London counselling practice is in Hampstead, and is within easy reach of Swiss Cottage, West Hampstead, Queen's Park, Willesden, Primrose Hill, Golders Green, Camden and all parts of North London. I am a short walk from West Hampstead underground, and from West Hampstead Overgound and Thameslink stations.
I offer appointments outside of office hours.
If you are considering counselling or psychotherapy, but are not sure if it is right for you, we can arrange an initial consultation to discuss your concerns. An initial consultation carries no obligation to continue.
