About

Brent Clark

As a counsellor registered through ACC (UK) and the FDAP, I provide a private and independent service. I offer competitive rates and work in line with current trends in the field. Fees are determined according to an income related sliding scale.

 

I offer a welcoming, non-judgmental, authentic and safe presence. My areas of specialism are working with young people, adults and couples suffering from stress, anxiety, mood disorders, relationship problems and addiction issues. I am skilled in working with a variety of different methods and aim to have a flexible and integrative approach, following what works best for you, and offering a range of ways in which you might grow. I utilise Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and person centered and psychodynamic approaches. I also offer mindfulness exercises.

 

I keep a fresh approach to my work by undertaking regular ongoing professional development including supervision, personal therapy, workshops and training courses. I always work within the latest ethical frameworks of both UKCP and BACP. I am subject to their standard complaints procedures.

 

I work in two places in London; an independent private practice in Spitalfields and Deptford London and in Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire. Sessions usually last 50 minutes, although longer sessions can be arranged as required
