We provide effective, affordable counselling for adults
Our counsellors offer psychodynamic counselling. They will help you understand how past experiences, worries about the future, or what goes on for you unconsciously may be affecting your life. You can find out more about the psychodynamic approach to improving mental health here.
Counselling is arranged on a once-weekly basis in fifty-minute sessions, and can be on either an open-ended basis or for a set number of sessions depending on your needs. This is discussed with you during your initial assessment appointment.
We work with a very wide range of issues and problems including depression, anxiety, low self esteem, low mood, or issues which may not have any diagnosis or a label.
Open-ended counselling means counselling without a fixed number of sessions. This offers you the opportunity to explore whatever has brought you to counselling at your own pace. You meet with the same counsellor, weekly, until both you and your counsellor feel ready to end the work.
Brief, focused counselling
If you have a specific issue to focus on, a time limited arrangement is made. This is a more solutions focused approach. You will meet with the same counsellor, weekly, for up to 12 sessions.
Sessions can be arranged between 9am and 9pm Monday to Friday and some Saturday mornings subject to counsellor availability. We always aim to avoid long wait times before counselling can begin.
Our in-person sessions are arranged at our rooms in central Tunbridge Wells, a short walk from Tunbridge Wells Station. We are also able to offer telephone or on-line counselling iin some situations.
We are committed to ensuring counselling is available to all who need it; we offer rooms at a separate location with disabled access.
