Scott Houston is a psychotherapist in the final stages of his Master’s Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy at the Metanoia Institute, London. Scott is a member of UKCP and works in private practice at The Awareness Centre offering goal-orientated short term therapy in addition to deeper long-term work.
Scott draws upon different schools of psychotherapy to establish how the past might be impacting the present and how current issues in your private or working life may be causing you difficulties or distress.
Scott will look at your relationships, family history and any past traumas or deficits to help decide how these may impact your current situation and will pose questions to challenge current frameworks and perceptions. Scott will ensure that his work offers empathy and understanding, is non-judgmental and is conducted in an environment which is safe, secure and entirely confidential.
Scott has experience in dealing with a wide range of problems in many varied settings including business, finance, advertising, education and the LGBT community. Scott has worked with clients in a private practice, local counselling service and with an NHS Hospital HIV Support Service. Scott has broad experience with gay and HIV clients who are dealing with addiction/s to sex, crystal meth and chemsex. As an Integrative Psychotherapist Scott prizes the relationship between himself and his clients, providing help with issues such as; abuse, addiction, anger, anxiety, bereavement, bullying, depression, family & relationships, gender & identity, guilt & shame, illness, isolation & loneliness, self-esteem and self-confidence, sex & relationships, sexuality, stress, suicidal thoughts, trauma and workplace issues.
To help you recover from whatever problems are troubling you the therapeutic relationship that you and Scott create together can be a source of support and comfort while providing a place in which to make sense of these issues so that, not only do you feel relief from your distress, but you can once again have greater control of your own life.
