Jon Durbridge offers to help you reach your goals in life and develop your full potential, in a comfortable and completely confidential space away from the stress of daily routine. And if you don’t know what your goals are, we can discover them together. He will provide unconditional support, without judgement, to help ease your concerns. These may be anything from anxiety and low self-confidence, to anger management and bereavement. As a therapist you can trust him with your deepest feelings and you’ll be free to share whatever’s on your mind. Often, the issues we think are troubling us, aren’t the real barriers at all. Together we can explore ways to bring clarity to your life to make for a happier existence and peace of mind – making an enormous difference to you and those around you. Jon is an integrative Humanistic Therapist and has a client-centred approach, meaning he will do everything to understand you in a totally empathetic way. This gives you a greater sense of acceptance of your own feelings, helping you to reconnect with your inner-values and self worth. It’s all too easy sometimes, to forget our positive qualities.
Having worked in finance, the media and hospitality, Jon brings a wide experience of working with all types of personalities when helping others. Drawing on his own life, he knows what it’s like working to tight deadlines and in a stressful environment. As a TV Executive he’s worked on programmes involving sensitive issues including body dysmorphia, drink and drug issues, relationships, eating disorders, and self-confidence / anxiety – all hugely enhancing his understanding of others. And his personal experience in challenging situations, in such competitive industries, is something he applies to his counselling work.
