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


Taken together, this combination helps 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've 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'm 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 and unable to access the inner resources we have previously relied on.
 

Therapy can help those who would like to...  make sense of the past; handle emotions differently; overcome feelings of depression or anxiety; improve relationships with others; live life with more passion, confidence and contentment;  be free of self-doubt or shame;  make professional changes; improve performance; make difficult choices; move beyond abuse or trauma; deal with things that hold you back in life.


I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore your situation and to understand it better.  Some people enter therapy with clear goals, others feeling overwhelmed and as a last resort.  Some 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 help you feel more in control of your life, and more able to make the decisions and choices that will get you where you'd like to be.  I offer support and also, at times, some challenge to help you move beyond your comfort zone.

Meeting

Reaching out for help can sometimes feel uncomfortable, but it is an act of self-care, an investment in yourself, and the first step forward.


I make no charge for a consultation, which is a chance for us to talk and decide if we'll work together.  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.

Issues

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.
