Philip Sheldon

Counsellor

therapy, for me, is a space to explore what's happened in the past, what's going on now, and what might happen next, and to navigate these sometimes difficult roads we have experienced in order to get back to ourselves

About

*** CORONA VIRUS - due to the current lockdown, i will be working online for the next few weeks. These are unchartered times, provoking a wide range of reactions and responses in all of us; the picture can change on a daily or indeed hourly basis, and we are bombarded with so much information: this can be super challenging and stressful. If you need to reach out for support during this time, please don't hesitate to contact me, and we can arrange a session online. ***

I'm from the UK, and started out academically with a first degree in Zoology. I drifted into Business following graduation for 10 years, before becoming super frustrated with my life and the 9 to 5. I took a risk and decided to try retraining as a therapist. I went back to college, and then University, and really enjoyed the challenge as a 30 year old going back to Uni. I have carved out a career in the counselling world, and appreciate the continuous learning journey you experience as a therapist, which feeds back into my work. I'm grateful for the work that i can do, to witness change, and to be able to sit with people through their transformations.

My Approach

I have over eight years' experience working in the field. I am trained in integrative therapy meaning that i offer therapy to fit the client need. I combine modalities such as psychodynamic, humanistic, systemic and modern relational therapies. A few years ago i completed a psychosexual certificate in order to better serve my clients who were bringing issues around sex into the room.

My rates are €90 for individuals (50 mins), and €120 for couples (1hr/75 mins). I can offer sliding scale rates for those with different financial needs - please contact me for further information.

LOCATION:

I am currently working from two offices to give you some location options. Mittelweg 50 just near Leinestraße (U8), and Markgrafendamm 16 just near S-Ostkreuz

CALENDAR: I will be working online for the next few weeks at least. Please message me if you want to book an appointment, or don't see a slot available.
