About Steven Smyth-Bonfield
Counselling can help you manage almost all of life’s problems, and I am committed to supporting you with whatever difficulties you are experiencing.
I focus on each client as a person; on your own struggles, hopes, fears and desires. I will support you through a process of personal reflection designed to increase your sense of self-worth and your confidence in dealing with the difficult emotions and hard situations our lives contain. I have been privileged to work with people all over the world and from many different ethnic backgrounds. Whatever your sexuality, your faith or your social circumstances, I will draw on all my experience as a person and my skill as a counsellor to help you achieve your aims and feel better.
I am an 'Integrative Counsellor', meaning that I offer a broad range of theoretical perspectives and practical counselling skills and am able to tailor my work as closely as possible to your needs.
Before entering private practice I worked extensively in universities and schools. I offer both long term counselling and brief, solution focused work.
I know that seeking counselling can be an intimidating, or even frightening thing to do, but the courage you are showing in reaching out for help is the first step in making the life changes you are looking for. I would also like to offer you the encouraging thought that this first step of choosing a counsellor and starting your first session is often the hardest part. In my experience, clients look back on their initial session as a moment of great relief and find themselves lighter and better able to cope by the time it is over.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
