About me and my therapy practice
So you’re looking for a counsellor
Maybe you’re thinking and feeling things you don’t want to think or feel. Or maybe feeling nothing at all. Perhaps things keep going wrong; or perhaps nothing changes. It could be you feel you can’t cope. Or something has just come and hit you for six. Counselling is a safe place to explore things like that. It’s a place with the potential for personal change.
Who am I?
My name is Tony Williams, and I am a counsellor working in central and North Kingston Upon Thames.
How does counselling work?
Fortunately, we humans can change our minds. Literally. A fancy word for this is plasticity. Even more, we are designed to change in each other’s company. It’s how humans learn to fit in. So we make a new relationship, you and I. In doing that, we are already making a vehicle for change. What’s the fuel for that vehicle? Well, you bring that. It’s your experiences, your thoughts, your feelings. And as we move along together, change can start to happen.
How do we work together?
Everything we do is a collaboration. Everything we do is for your benefit. We make choices; where you want to go; how fast; how much challenge do you want? How much support? When do you feel the work is done?
What do you pay me for?
My job is to hear you; not judge you; and to try to understand your experience, perhaps in great detail; to help you to reflect; to help you shape your journey; and to be available for you, throughout, with a safe place. Especially when it is most difficult.
I’m a fully qualified Integrative-Relational counsellor; and a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP). That means I meet the right standards in competence and integrity. More than that, though, I am committed to making the extra step to meet you in the way you want to be met; where, when and recognising your individual needs.
