About me and my therapy practice

I  offer a caring holistic approach to enable people to resolve their difficulties. I am a BACP  senior accredited counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor and have been in practice for over 35 years. During that time I have worked with more than 6000 people both privately and in the NHS.

I am qualified both as a psychotherapist and as a counsellor. Over the years I have had extensive training in many different types of therapy, which I combine with sensitivity and intuition. I am thus able to respect and respond to the varying needs of each person I see, by offering individualised creative ways of working.

I love working as a therapist and feel privileged to be involved in helping people make positive changes in both the way they feel about themselves and in the quality of their lives.

I am able to work with a wide range of concerns some of which are listed below. I also offer counselling and supervision to counsellors in training and to qualified practitioners.

If you are possibly interested in having therapy with me, I will suggest that initially we meet once to establish whether we feel we can work together. If we decide to continue, sessions can then start on a weekly, fortnightly or whatever time period works best basis.

My fee for a 1 hour session is £45 and concessions are available for students and others. I am also happy to signpost people to free or low cost services.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of seeing me, I can be contacted on 07748 574072.

Testimonials

"I will never forget your wisdom & kindness. I now know who I am and where I am going."

"Adela you are by far the best therapist I have ever seen. Thank you so much for helping me sort my life out."

"I felt safe and accepted. Adela is compassionate, down to earth and very effective."

"I went from rock bottom to feeling really well."

The following testimonial comes from a GP, Dr David Whillier, at Woodlands Health Centre, who I worked with throughout my time there.

Adela Austin worked at Woodlands Health Centre, Paddock Wood, Kent for over 26 years on a part-time basis and left in March 2017. During that period she saw over 2,500 NHS patients for counselling and brief psychotherapy, as well as supervising other counsellors at the practice.

Adela achieved excellent results with our patients. These results were evidenced through measurement questionaires, as well as client feedback forms. Patients commented on how Adela was able to respond to their needs and help them make significant positive changes in their lives.

Adela was also always happy to offer professional consultation to other members of the Primary Healthcare team and her knowledge of resources was invaluable to our patients as well as staff.

I have great respect for Adela's work and highly recommend her as a therapist.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP  senior accredited supervisor  with over 25 years experience  of offering supervision. 


I very much enjoy supervising counsellors. Not only do I find it very fulfilling to see counsellors grow and develop their work, but I also often learn a lot from those I supervise.

The most common feedback from people I supervise is that their sessions are very helpful, practical, supportive, reflective, stimulating and enjoyable.

I always suggest that we meet initially at least once, to see if we feel comfortable working together. 

My fee for supervision is £45 for a full hour with concessions for students.

Testimonials 

"Adela provides a safe and non-judgemental space in which I never feel I need to hold back. She really listens, is creative and is always highly committed in helping me to help my clients. I feel it is a privilege to have Adela as my supervisor." M.C. MBACP (Accred)

"My work is both long term and short term but the majority is brief work with EAP clients. My supervisor Adela balances respecting my autonomy as a therapist with offering guidance when it is needed. I always look forward to supervision which provides a challenging but very supportive environment in which to work. I would have no hesitation in recommending Adela to others." J.T. MBACP (Accred)
