Jon Sutton

I’m a qualified counsellor, registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy with over 30 years experience, helping young people (ages 13 years to 17 years) and adults including working with a leading UK emergency service and as a volunteer for a local community counselling  service, successfully helping people overcome emotional challenges and trauma that is affecting them enjoying life. Whether you are struggling with almost unmanageable anxiety and depression impacting on relationships and daily life or want to improve your  life and feel better about yourself please get in contact. I provide a calm, safe space physically in Canterbury, Kent or virtually via Zoom where you will be listened to, heard and understood allowing you to  explore your feelings at your own pace.

I have extensive experience helping those dealing with incredibly traumatic and stressful situations, many managing personal struggles of their own, often reluctant or worried to ask for help.

I will provide you a health and wellbeing programme adapted to your needs to better manage stress, anxiety and depression alongside the therapy to look at identifying and healing the cause.

I’m also able to provide mentoring, through the development of coaching and development programmes, to enable individuals to achieve their potential.

I work with adults and young people. I have significant experience working with those in their teenage years, encouraging, often vulnerable or challenged children, to engage on a programme that provides support, stability, discipline, direction, encouragement  and a sense of belonging with an exceptional success rate motivating them to good life choices about their future.

I was diagnosed with dyslexia late in life so feel I have a strong understanding of neurodiversity and how challenging many situations can be in life and the importance of embracing this difference and harnessing the benefits. This experience  has enabled me to support many clients with a range of neurodiverse challenges to develop effective strategies to feel confident to discuss and develop strategies to achieve their potential.   

I am an experienced foster carer and have a good understanding of the challenges that foster care and adoption can evoke for both the children and adults involved. I also volunteer for a community-based counselling charity alongside my  private practice

My clients say that I am calm and approachable, providing the space and when appropriate humour, to help them achieve their counselling goals. That I am able to adapt my approach dependent on what you need; from listening through to helping  you gently challenge yourself.

I provide ‘in-person’ counselling at my private practice in Canterbury and virtual counselling sessions via Zoom with availability in the evenings and at weekends at a standard cost of £50 per session.
