You come to us because you desire impactive integrative, directive counselling and psychotherapy with aspects of personal coaching and mentoring.

Our approach is predominately analytical, seeking to identify and treat the causes of symptoms, both conscious and unconscious. Such insights reduce repeated patterns of thinking and behaviours that cause depression, anxiety and other mental health issues. We use a socratic but person-centred approach which establishes what you want to achieve before agreeing a bespoke plan for treatment.  

We specialise in working with autism/ADHD including pathological demand avoidance, narcissism, narcissistic abuse recovery, trauma, anxiety, depression, relieving emotional pain.

We have different price entry points, depending upon the type of service you require and the therapist you prefer to work with.  We offer a full assessment at the beginning of any course of treatment, followed by regular reviews. 

We work with you to understand and relieve suffering by talking through and helping you in solving problems.  A deep analysis improves the quality of your understanding of self and others.  This improves the quality of your life, your relationships, and brings lasting changes.

Mr. Christopher KIDD (M.A)

Professionally qualified.

B.A.(Hons) Philosophy & Religious Studies (Kent).

M.A.(Merit) Psychoanalytic Studies (UCL, Birkbeck).


Diploma in Counselling Therapy

I have successfully treated a broad range of people from as young as 4 to a lady of 89.  Many symptoms and mental health issues have been successfully treated including depression, anxiety and psychosomatic conditions.  I have a specialism with autism, its causes and management. 

 

I have also worked successfully with eating disorders, body dysmorphia, survivors of parental and sexual abuse and professionals traumatised from service, including the emergency services and armed forces. I have been particularly successful in the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and personality disorders.  I have gathered considerable experience and insight into narcissism and how to treat this disorder and how to manage and recover from it.   ​I have taught and lectured in counselling and use a wide range of styles and techniques to facilitate client improvements. This can range from simple counselling to a deeper psychoanalytical approach.  I lean heavily upon the work of Jacques Lacan, John D. Caputo. I work a lot with relationships including marriages and families, and encourage people to learn some simple techniques to help overcome problems in the future.
