Andrew AllanIntegrative counsellor
Hi. I am currently working online and also offer walk and talk therapy in Knole Park, Sevenoaks (other nearby locations considered). I will return to face to face practice when safe to do so but will continue offering all alternatives to offer you maximum flexibility.
I am an integrative counsellor, which means that I offer a range of different tools and techniques because I recognise that each individual is different and each circumstance unique, I am therefore happy to work with you whether your issue is relatively specific and short term or something more complex and deep rooted. I believe that the most important aspect of counselling is the relationship between therapist and client and so my first objective will be to make you feel at ease and understand what you are looking for from counselling.
Whilst I am experienced in dealing with a wide range of issues, I have a particular interest in relationships. To that end, I am currently studying for an advanced diploma in relationship counselling. If you come to counselling as a couple of other grouping I will ensure that all participants have a voice and are treated equally. I will work with you to help you grow as individuals as well as develop the relationship(s).
Walk and talk therapy is increasingly popular. For some people just getting out of the home can be immensely beneficial, some may find it easier to open up whilst walking whilst for others making connections to nature can deepen the therapeutic experience. Where circumstances allow, you are welcome to bring a dog with you.
The initial meeting is free of charge and this provides you with an opportunity to understand more regarding my counselling and whether you would like to work with me.
