Keith Elvin

Counsellor in East Barnet

I have been in full-time practice at this address for the last 25 years. In that time I have seen over two thousand clients, varying in age from 3 years old to 92 years of age. Their reasons for consulting me vary enormously from phobias, obsessive compulsive behavior , relationship problems, depression ,psychosomatic disorders. and so on, but what they tend to have in common is that they are trying to gain some control over themselves or their lives, or both. And its my privilege to help them.And because I see so many clients per week I am able to offer discretionary rates to those who cannot afford the standard fees.

Background & Qualifications

My academic background is in Psychology and Philosophy and my formal training in various types of therapy has been through training organisations affiliated to or recognized by the The National Council of Psychotherapists and the National Council for Hypnotherapy to which I belong.

These have included training in Psychotherapy, Counselling, Hypnotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Meditation, NLP and Ericksonian Therapy, as well as the recently developed Brain Working Recursive Therapy..

I am also a member of the American National Guild of Hypnotists, The National Counselling Society and a Senior Associate of The Royal Society of Medicine.

My Specialisms

I have no particular specialization.. Although I belong to a large number of organisations across the therapeutic field, I have no particular allegiance to one particular approach.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I work, therefore in a very flexible way; applying whatever intervention I believe to be best for a given client at a particular time. The only common denominator is that sessions tend to be relaxed and occasionally humorous,

Because not all clients can take time off work, I am also available at weekends and evenings as well as weekdays.

Some of my clients come from GP and other referrals but. some contact me directly either by e-mail or phone and I am willing to spend time in discussion before a potential client becomes an actual one.
