Principles

At Sutton Counselling we work psychodynamically, which means linking the present with the past, and also helping to bring unconscious ideas out into the open. Your counsellor will not give you advice or tell you what to do. Instead you will have the time and non-judgmental space to think about things in a different way. Some people find this brings relief.

All our counsellors are either qualified or in the later stages of a rigorous training.   They all work under the supervision of a qualified and experienced therapist.

We aim to make counselling as affordable and accessible as possible by keeping our running costs as low as possible. There is a charge for the initial meeting, and then regular weekly sessions on a sliding scale. We do offer a limited number of low fee places available under our bursary scheme. You can discuss the best options at the initial assessment, or if your personal circumstances change during counselling.

Sutton Counselling is proud to be a BACP Accredited Service (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). This means we adhere to the BACP ethical framework.  It also requires us to evidence a commitment to competence, high levels of service delivery and professional accountability.

While Sutton Counselling is based in offices at Sutton Baptists Church we are fully independent from the Baptist Church but work with people of any faith, or no faith.
