A warm welcome to you. My name is Mandy Atkinson, and I am a UKCP accredited Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist offering counselling and psychotherapy working from Hadlow, near Tonbridge in Kent. My practice is within easy reach of Tonbridge, West Malling, Kings Hill, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells, Paddock Wood, High Brooms and Maidstone. Orpington, Bromley, Sussex and Surrey are also within travelling distance.
Here I’ve written about counselling and psychotherapy from my experience as a practitioner to help you on your journey to starting therapy. I include an introduction to counselling and psychotherapy, what to expect from me and from therapy pages and some information about why people come to see me.
Finding the right therapist for you is important. I believe it is important for you to be able to connect with me and to feel comfortable in the work we do together in your therapy. I offer an initial assessment session, which provides the opportunity for you to sit with me and see how you feel about me as your therapist. This also provides an opportunity for me to carry out some initial assessment and to explore together a way of working, moving forwards.
There are useful resources available for you to consider when looking for a therapist. For example:
