Stephan SolonIntegrative counsellor
Notwithstanding the easing of lockdown measures I am only providing video and telephone counselling. At the moment all of my available sessions are taken so I'm not taking on new clients. Since my contracts are open ended and normally continue for some time I do not maintain a waiting list.
I am a warm, empathic counsellor, skilled and experienced in helping my clients understand and work through difficult, sometimes painful, feelings. The qualities of caring and respect underpin the way I work.
In the face of mental distress our response may be to seek safety in ways that are familiar to us. We might experience ourselves withdrawing from life, fighting it or submitting to some one or thing more powerful than us. Those familiar ways might work for a while, but sometimes they no longer serve us well and lead to deeper distress. Whatever you are facing, I work with the person present with me to create a healing relationship that can help you live the best life you can.
I offer counselling to individual adults. Counselling is a confidential process that helps you explore and address what matters most to you. I have experience counselling people privately and working for a national charity delivering counselling for the NHS. I draw upon my experience and my training as an integrative counsellor to stay with you and work through what you need to at this time in your life.
I recognise seeking counselling can be difficult. There may be a question of trust for you. Perhaps concern about the counselling process, or maybe you feel bad about needing help at all. I can help you explore your concerns and needs in an introductory counselling session, following which you can decide whether you would like to continue the therapeutic work of counselling with me.
If you would like to arrange an informal telephone conversation to find out more, or would like to arrange an introductory counselling session with me, please do get in touch via the 'Contact' tab. For the time being it is not possible to use the 'Book now' tab to arrange a session.
