About me...

Steve Perkins

Steve Perkins - Personal Consultant

MBACP, AICTP, BSc (Hons), PGDip (Dist) Integrative Counselling & Coaching.

I offer Personal Consultancy: professional and confidential Psychotherapy, Coaching and Counselling in Haywards Heath, surrounding areas in  Mid-Sussex, and the City of London.

My clinical approach is Integrative, (CBT, Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Existential, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis), and includes Coaching approaches and techniques.   This allows a focus on deep psychological healing and change, and also the ability to  work in practical, solution-focused ways with my clients to  develop their strengths. 

Taken together, this combination may help clients achieve a fuller potential in their lives.  It may also help get the best value from the deeply courageous but often painful process of challenging ourselves; of facing our fears and tackling the hardest situations that life can throw at us.

I have worked for over twenty years in the financial sector, and have experience leading large departments in a pressurized atmosphere.  My passion is helping people fulfil their potential and come through tough times, and I know from my own experience how useful therapy and coaching can be. I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and my full professional details are public on LinkedIn.

Working Together

Life is full of challenges and demands.  Mostly we are able to respond to them effectively.  However there may be times when we feel out of touch with ourselves, unable to access the inner resources we have previously relied on.

What do you seek... Maybe greater contentment in life? To make sense of the past?  The live with passion and confidence?  To be free of self-doubt?  To overcome feelings of depression or anxiety?  To achieve that promotion?   To make difficult choices?  To move beyond abuse or trauma? To live life to the fullest?  To finally deal with issues you've carried with you your whole life? 

People seek out help for many reasons, and I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore your situation and to understand it better.  Some people come to therapy with clear goals, others feeling overwhelmed and as a last resort.  Some may feel stuck in an old groove, and this is also ok, therapy can still help.  Our work together may help open up new perspectives and insights; a deeper understanding of how you think, feel and behave.    

We can work together to understand the past, to see where you would like to be, and explore the best ways of getting there.  I offer support through this journey and also, at times, some challenge to help you move beyond your comfort zone. 

See the below Issues section for information on the types of problems that are more common. 


Let's meet...

Reaching out for help can sometimes feel uncomfortable, but it is an act of self-care, an investment in yourself, and an empowering first step to get where you want to be. 

I make no charge for a consultation, which is a chance for us to talk and for you to see if I am right for you.  If I believe I am not the best fit for you or that a colleague may have specialist expertise that could help, then I will say so and make a referral if you would like.

As a clinician I also have a special interest in working with issues relating to boarding schools and offering therapeutic-coaching services to C-level financial professionals from my London practice.

I work with a wide range of issues, including:

Therapy Information

Psychotherapy and Counselling?

The term counselling is used fairly interchangeably with psychotherapy, but a broad distinction can be made.  Counselling best describes a process within which a client explores a 'problem situation'.


The term psychotherapy is often interchangeable with counselling but the work is often more focused on the inner-world and processes of the client.

What is Coaching?

If counselling and psychotherapy are thought of as 'reparative', then coaching offers also a 'generative' experience.  A chance to develop oneself to the fullest potential. A chance to set goals, work out strategies to achieve them, then to make it happen.


Often this works best when combined with the foundational work of counselling / psychotherapy.

Integrative Approach?

An integrative approach brings together techniques and theory from more than one school of psychological thought. This can differ greatly in practice, but working integratively implies a belief that there are many ways human psychology can be explored and understood, that no one theory holds all the answers, and that techniques can be drawn from various modalities and tailored to suit clients.  As a Personal Consultant, this is how I practice.
