Professional Therapy in Hythe, Kent

The style of therapy that I offer uses philosophy to reflect on life as you are currently experiencing it, to identify the parts that feel disruptive, painful or stuck, and help you work towards something personally meaningful.

Nicholas Langley

In a nutshell, I believe that…

– There are often possibilities that we haven’t considered.

– Our past influences us, but cannot dictate who we are today, and who we are today, does not need to be who we are forever.

– There is no perfect way of living, and we must each find a way that works best for us; trial and error is a given.

– We all have the capacity to live a rich and meaningful life, and that this is made more likely when we engage with it fully and accept responsibility for our part in it. 

The Long(er) version… 

I am an integratively trained therapist with a particular interest in existential and eco-therapeutic principles, philosophies, and ways of working. 

My model is phenomenological (focusing on your personal experiences, from your own perspective) and I actively avoid making assumptions about what life should or should not be like, after all, there is no one-size-fits-all.

I don’t believe any one thing to be inherently more or less important that the other, and I work alongside you in developing a focus for the work, which might shift and change as the work continues, much like the ‘ebb’ and a ‘flow’ we experience in the rest of life. For example, I don’t focus solely on the past, present or future, but instead see them as connected and equally important.

In terms of my eco-therapeutic influence, I enjoy working in a an outdoor space and I find it to be [typically] beneficial for people who prefer a less formal setting. More than this though, I believe that nature-human relatedness is a ‘given’ (something that is an unavoidable part of existing) and including nature in the therapeutic process adds to the sense of wholeness for many of my clients.

Occasionally, one of us will notice something in the environment and it may form part of our work, I do not see this as a distraction, but an opportunity to develop a connection with the life that we share our space with. When working indoors, I tend to draw on nature-based metaphor as a way of exploring your experience of being.

I understand that different people need different things at different times, and so I happily co-construct the work to fit you and your needs. This means that we might agree on weekly sessions or meet fortnightly, we might plan for long-term work or short-term; these are things that we can discuss in our initial meeting and I am happy to make suggestions, however, ultimately the choice is yours.

I always encourage people to check that a therapist has formal training and is registered with a professional body. If you would like to know more about my training and credentials, feel free to take a look here:

Outdoor Therapy

Evening sessions fully booked, daytime availability only

This way of working is often described as less intense and is particularly suited to people who struggle to settle in a formal, face to face setting, or sometimes, simply love being outdoors.

Outdoor therapy is more than an extension of the traditional therapy space and takes the stance that the world (other people, birds, rocks, the sea) cannot be separated from the human experience and therefore, they are welcomed as part of the process.

I integrate all of these ideas within an existential approach to psychotherapy.

Indoor Therapy / Counselling

Evening sessions fully booked, daytime availability only

Sometimes, depending on the time of year, the weather is just a little too challenging for outdoor work; a client might prefer a more private, cosy setting; or there is simply a ‘need’ to be indoors.

When working indoors we will be based in a confidential, bespoke therapy space in Hythe, Kent. We have access to a whiteboard and creative materials if that suits your way of working.

Regrettably, my indoor space is not wheelchair friendly, and please note that there are no toilets available on-site as I typically work offsite.


Initial Session – £45

Standard Session – £60

Whilst I do offer concessions in some cases, my full fees are commensurate with the level and diversity of my experience.

Important Things To Know Before You Book

It is important for anyone looking to engage in a counselling service to understand the following service limitations:

  • Therapy is not a crisis service: if you feel you need frequent (more than once weekly) or out of hours support, you should contact your local GP for an appointment to discuss your needs. If you are feeling unsafe and are worried about harming yourself or another, you can visit your local GP/hospital or in an emergency, you can call 999.
  • Confidentiality in therapy is subject to the law: to find out about the limits to confidentiality in counselling, you should speak with your counsellor. Alternatively, you can find more information here:
  • Counselling / Therapy are designed to support you in working through and coming to terms with difficult things, they can cannot: provide you with solutions; fix you; offer any kind of guarantee.
