Sunny Austin


What is Counselling?
Counselling provides a safe and confidential space for you to talk about issues and problems. You will be supported in exploring your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so you can develop a better understanding of yourself and of others. You will be listened to without judgement. You may be offered information, but you will not be told what you should think or do.

The process will help you find your own solutions – whether that is making effective changes in your life or finding ways of dealing with your problems.

Counselling can help with:

  • - Anxiety, stress or depression.
  • - An unsettling event, such as a bereavement, redundancy, divorce or health scare.
  • - A past experience that has not been dealt with and is now affecting your daily life.
  • - A need to talk to someone independent of family and friends about personal, family or relationship issues.
  • - A feeling of dissatisfaction with life in general.


About Sunny
Sunny is a warm and empathic counsellor who works hard to provide a good standard of care. He is open and trustworthy and able to facilitate respectful working relationships. He will not judge what you disclose about yourself, your attitudes or behaviours.

Sunny is professionally trained in Humanistic Counselling. He works in a client-centred way, sometimes incorporating ideas from other approaches such as Existential Psychotherapy and Solution Focussed Brief Therapy. He has good self-awareness after undergoing an extensive period of his own personal counselling..

Sunny is a fully accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. He is very interested in developing his knowledge and skills through further training and reading. He receives regular supervision for all his client work, and he has advanced DBS certification.

After working in education, Sunny started his counselling career 10 years ago. As well as his private practice, he has experience of working with clients in a variety of settings including Further Education, GP surgeries, IAPT providers, Employee Assistance Programmes and a Community Counselling Service.
