Overcoming Addiction, Rediscovering Life

Integrative Counselling and Therapy in Eltham, South East London and Online

Thank you for visiting The Garden Practice.

Do you feel overwhelmed by anxiety, depression, or the weight of life's demands due to gambling addiction? I understand the challenges you're facing and as an integrative counselling therapist specialising in gambling addiction, I provide a nurturing space where healing and growth can take place.

Reaching out for help may seem daunting, but it's the courageous first step towards a brighter future. Together, we can nurture your mind, heal your soul, and cultivate a life filled with fulfilment and freedom from the grip of addiction. Take that first step today and discover the support and guidance you deserve on this transformative path towards recovery.

I'm John, an experienced integrative counsellor, and my mission is to support and guide individual adults through their unique journeys, whether on a short-term or long-term basis. Based in Eltham, Greenwich, I understand the importance of flexibility, so I also offer online sessions for your convenience. While my specialisation lies in addiction, I can help you with a wide range of struggles you may be facing. Whether it's anxiety, relationship issues, or personal growth, I am here to provide you with the tools and support needed to overcome obstacles and cultivate a life of balance, purpose, and fulfilment. Together, let's embark on this transformative journey towards healing and growth.

"Recovery is an ongoing journey of self-discovery, healing wounds, and rebuilding a life that addiction once stole away."

How Can Therapy Help You?

Counselling and Therapy are powerful tools that can support you on your journey towards self-discovery and personal growth. I'm not here to "fix" you. Instead, I offer a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental space where you can freely explore your struggles, emotions, and experiences. Therapy is a collaborative process, and together we will navigate your challenges with empathy and compassion.

Rather than providing all the answers, my role as a therapist is to guide you towards a deeper understanding of yourself. I believe that you have the inner wisdom and strength to find your own answers. By offering a fresh perspective and listening attentively, I aim to help you tap into your own intuition and discover the solutions that resonate with you.

Counselling is a transformative journey of self-awareness. It can help you gain clarity, develop coping strategies, and make meaningful changes in your life. Through our work together, you can cultivate a greater sense of self-compassion, build resilience, and create a more fulfilling future.

Take the step towards self-discovery and empowerment. Let The Garden Practice be your guiding companion on this transformative path of self-exploration.

"Addiction is not a choice anyone makes, but recovery is a choice you can make every day."

A Safe Space

At The Garden Practice, I provide a nurturing and confidential environment where you can freely express yourself. Feel supported as you explore your challenges and emotions with compassion and understanding.

Empowering You

My aim is to empower you on your journey of self-discovery and growth. Together, we'll develop personalised strategies and tools that enable you to overcome obstacles, build resilience, and create positive change in your life.

The Journey of Therapy

Embark on a transformative journey of self-awareness and healing. Therapy is a process of exploration, growth, and self-discovery. Let us guide you through this transformative path towards a more fulfilling and balanced life.

Issues I work With


Addiction can grip your life, leading to a sense of powerlessness and turmoil. Whether it's substance abuse, gambling, or other addictive behaviours, I am here to provide a compassionate and non-judgmental space for you to heal. Through therapy, we'll address the underlying causes, develop healthy coping strategies, and create a path towards recovery and long-term wellness.


Traumatic experiences can leave deep emotional wounds that impact every aspect of your life. Together, we'll navigate the effects of trauma, helping you find healing and reclaim your sense of self. Through counselling, we'll work to process and integrate the pain, fostering resilience, self-compassion, and a renewed sense of hope for the future.

In addition to addiction and trauma, I also work with a range of other issues that may be impacting your well-being. Whether you're struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationship challenges, or coping with loss, as your counsellor, I am here to support you. Even if you're unsure of what specifically is wrong, therapy can help you gain clarity and understanding. Together, we'll explore your experiences, identify patterns, and develop strategies to overcome obstacles, fostering personal growth and a renewed sense of purpose. Remember, you don't have to face these challenges alone—I'm here to help you navigate your unique journey towards healing and transformation.
