Nigel Beaumont Psychodynamic counsellor , EC1V

My Training

I have been trained in using integrated techniques with a principle focus on using a Psychodynamic approach which stresses the importance of the unconscious and past experiences in shaping our behaviour. I also have additional training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Person Centred Therapy and will use an integrated approach when appropriate.

Initial Meeting

We will have an initial meeting which will give us a chance to discuss what has brought you to counselling, and your objectives. I will ask you about yourself, your family and your relationships to inform me and enable me to structure our sessions appropriately. I will also ask you to tell me more about the history of the issues you are bringing, and how these are affecting you in everyday life.

I will also explain how the sessions are structured, what you can expect and answer all of your questions.

Frequency of our sessions

We will normally meet once a week at the same time. Sessions last for 50 minutes.

Experience

I have experience of working with adults from the age of 18, particularly in helping with depression, General Anxiety disorder, work related stress and emotional difficulties associated with life-changing events which include redundancy, retirement, job loss.

  • Men's Issues   I have worked extensively with men who are often hesitant to seek help. Too often men would prefer not to admit that they have a problem that might benefit from talking to someone. In attempting to mask these difficult feelings, men often turn to denial, anger - turning this in on themselves or those they love. Internalising the idea that being a "man" means you sort out problems without involving others is damaging and causes unnecessary suffering to yourself and those you love.
  • Work related Issues   I have extensive experience of working with anxiety arising out of work related issues ( redundancy, retirement, prolonged ill health), which can be damaging to a person's feelings of self worth. I can help in processing the multiple emotions relating to these changing circumstances, bringing a fresh perspective and building the resilience necessary to assimilating these changes.


My counselling training allows me to offer a safe place to explore the emotions around life changing events, and to help you to plot a course for your future. The idea of asking for counselling might raise anxiety - here are some key points:

  • During counselling no one will tell you what you should do
  • It is a non-judgemental process
  • No-one will tell you how you are feeling
  • Counselling allows you to focus on troubling issues
