Private counselling Tunbridge Wells



8 Chilston Road
Tunbridge Wells
Kent
TN4 9LT


We have enjoyed working consistently with new clients in the local and surrounding areas for over 10 years in central Tunbridge Wells. We have the benefit of 17 years’ working with common obstacles to wellbeing which gives us insight into various mental health issues for clients who come for psychotherapy, counselling, and CBT in Tunbridge Wells.

We are currently the only private counselling service in Tunbridge Wells that offers additional specialist therapy such as Viktor Frankl’s Logotherapy and ego-state therapy in the form of the DNMS.

Our counselling rooms are within the Atman Clinic in Chilston Road, quietly tucked away at the back of the building on the first floor. The clinic has a reception and waiting area with free parking within the grounds, as well as roadside parking.

How might counselling help?

We will experience times in our lives when we feel our ability to cope is impaired. We might be clear about why this is and other times it feels more confusing to find a reason. Either way, counselling is likely to be beneficial and our Tunbridge Wells counsellors are prepared to work with you to find a way forward. The counsellor is impartial when enabling you to work through issues, find your own solutions, and guided through specific techniques. When facing up to a problem that is difficult to discuss, we ensure that we provide a supportive, safe, and confidential environment.

Can we help if counselling has not worked for you in the past?
It is no surprise that it might take more than one attempt to find the right counsellor in Tunbridge Wells. At face value, this seems to be down to nature’s way of deciding who we connect to. One factor might be the clients’ motivation to engage in the counselling process. Another factor might be the limitations of the counsellor themselves. We welcome anyone who is sceptical of therapy. We are happy to discuss any questions or reservations you might have.
