T Martyn Gough ~ Registered Member MBACP (Snr. Accred)

epsom counselling

I am a qualified counsellor and Senior Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I work within the Ethical Framework of the BACP.

I am also a UKRCP Registered Independent Counsellor/ Psychotherapist.

Sessions are confidential, usually 1.5 hours duration and charged currently at £55 for individuals, £65 for couples and £75 for families, with concessions available in certain circumstances.

Most counsellors in the Epsom area charge similar fees for typically 50 minute sessions but I have found that 90 minute sessions are beneficial to my clients and so my charges are approximately half the cost of most other therapists.

Some issues can be resolved or improved in short term therapy, some require a longer term committment.

As well as being a Senior Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (Registered Member MBACP Snr. Accred) I also hold 'Approved Healer' status as a spiritual healer, having passed the written, oral and practical examinations of the Spiritualists National Union (SNU).

epsom counselling Opening up to a higher awareness has led me towards helping others to understand their own inner-selves by examining their basic assumptions or concepts around which their ‘world’ or ‘reality’ is constructed.

In parallel with the psychological approach, which has a tendency to look at feelings of worthlessness, I have also been more used to examining the concept of worthlessness; instead of the experience of separation the concept of separation.

epsom surrey kt17 I additionally have been engaged in Yoga for forty years and have been Accredited as a Yoga Teacher by The British Wheel of Yoga (BWY), and both the science and philosophy of Yoga inform my practice as a counsellor.

Certain counselling styles suit some people more than others, so I draw from a range of approaches to provide the right support for you.

I work from a holistic approach looking at your troublesome or painful experiences as well as the underlying causes which have caused you to experience life through your particularly unique perspective.
