About the Therapist
My name is Jonathon Gadenne (he/him). I am a qualified and experienced integrative humanistic counsellor. I identify as a gay/ queer man, and I live and work in London.
I strongly believe in the dignity of all human beings, based on respect and value for an individual’s human rights, cultural and social differences and beliefs. In my clinical practice, I have had the opportunity and privilege to work with a wide range of people, and continue to welcome clients of all ages, all genders, sexualities, religious beliefs, and minority ethnic backgrounds. I am also experienced in working with both diagnosed and undiagnosed neurodiverse clients.
As well as my private practice, I have clinical experience in the NHS, offering solution-focused therapy via their iatpus program. I also have specialist training in bereavement and loss counselling and continue to work for an NHS hospice. I have further experience in supporting clients with mental health issues relating to addiction and dependency.
I offer a safe and confidential therapeutic space for you to talk about any issues and concerns. Working collaboratively together, we can explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in order to gain greater insight and develop a better understanding of yourself.

The foundation of my approach is our therapeutic relationship, establishing and developing a meaningful bond, that’s is both non-judgemental and compassionate yet, robust enough to be honest and authentic, in order to grapple with difficult and uncomfortable issues or emotions. This happens at an appropriate pace that you can manage.
Working collaboratively, we will explore your subjective experience, and develop your self-awareness around the issues and problems that you are experiencing. We will consider past experiences to see if those ways of doing things are still useful today. Updating these strategies may be necessary for dealing with life in the here and now. Discovering and develop your personal strengths will help unlock your full potential and new possibilities and identify your own resources leading to autonomy.
As an integrative humanistic counsellor, I draw upon a wide range of psychological therapies so that my approach is tailored to your needs. I employ different modalities including, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt Therapy, and Person-Centred Counselling. These models are underscored by my belief in a holistic approach, of mind, body and spirit.

I offer an initial 30-minute telephone or zoom consultation. Although this is not an assessment, it gives you the opportunity to discuss your needs and hear more about how I work. There is no charge for this service.
The initial consultation is a chance for us to meet face to face and think about how we might work together. You can tell me a little bit about yourself and explain what is on your mind. You may have already decided on a focus or goal for therapy, if not, this may also be the time to explore this.
Most importantly, it is your opportunity to consider if we are a ‘good fit’, and if you feel comfortable working together, as a good therapeutic relationship is essential to effective therapy.
