I have worked with adult survivors of sexual abuse and people struggling with ideas of suicide as well as supporting clients to overcome low self esteem, anxiety, and manage the pressures life brings to us all.
The first step towards asking for help can be the hardest. Get in touch and we can take it together. My name is Claudine Astles and I work with clients in the Victoria area of central London, SW1, and also online. I am committed to offering a safe, non-judgemental space in which we can use counselling and therapy to explore your concerns, fears, and anxieties, and work together to help you reconnect with joy. I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.

My adult work has included exploring anxiety and depression as well as focusing on suicide , divorce, bereavement and self-esteem.
Garden of Eadon is the practice name for counselling and psychotherapy with Alexander Gray. As a psychotherapist-in-training, working towards UKCP accreditation, I can offer low cost counselling. I use an integrative approach to create a warm, safe place for exploration and expression. This allows me to fully witness my clients and work with what they present. Underpinning my practice is the belief that we are made up of mind, body and soul. Our essential qualities can be covered over by the stress of life and our environment. Our work is to reveal the soul nature underneath and find ways to heal and nourish the true self.

Over the years, I have work with clients on short-term and long-term arrangements, dealing with depression, anxiety, suicidal crisis, anger, low self-esteem, panic disorders, relationship issues, trauma, questions of spirituality and meaning, such as Who am I?. From my own experience of therapy, insight some times is not enough. Therefore I might ask you to complete certain tasks designed to help you develop more effective skills. This approach often involves homework assignments. I draw on many techniques, including visualisation, dream exploration, drawing, role-play, and the most familiar method: conversation between two people.

I practise DBT (Dialectical Behavioural Therapy) which is recognised throughout the world as being the most effective treatment for clients experiencing intensive emotions and engaging in problematic behaviours such as self-harming or attempting suicide .
Have you been struggling with intensive emotions? Have you found it difficult to relate to people? Have you noticed that you have a strong fear of being rejected? Have you noticed that you move between extremes -- either liking someone or hating them the next moment? Do you use unhelpful coping strategies such as self-harming, to manage your emotions? If the answer to any of these questions is "Yes" then mine is the correct Service for you. There is a long queue for NHS treatment for clients with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), and I am able to offer the same treatment as NHS offers,

After several years of working predominantly with clients who are considering suicide and/or who have been victims of abuse and crimes.
Regardless of whether in a crisis or not, therapy is a carved out space solely for you. A space of exploration, reflection and contemplation. I am here to honour that space and walk alongside you as we explore together the foundations that make you who are. I offer a versatile, updated form of therapy that adapts to our every day nomadic and digital needs. My work is focused on empowering victims of abuse through their own narrative and working in preventative measures with perpetrators. My online digital therapy practice, ONIS, provides a special focus on therapy for those in the Entertainment Service Industries.

I also have specialism, dealing with suicidal ideation , and helping families deal with suicide 's aftermath.
It can be a huge step to decide to talk to a counsellor/psychotherapist about personal issues so it is important to find someone you are comfortable with, who will not judge you but accept you for who you are. I offer office based and/or telephone therapy. In my experience as a therapist I have found that when someone senses that he or she is being listened to at a deep level in an atmosphere of acceptance and empathy, a very powerful and liberating positive momentum can be achieved. Therapy can be a journey. For some it can be a chance to talk about surviving abuse and trauma, providing a platform to gain more control over life

I have been very privileged to work with one of the biggest mental health charity and have had experience dealing with clients with mild or severe mental health issues, those with suicidal thoughts or suicidal ideation , depression and low mood as well as low self esteem.
Finding the right counsellor and someone to connect with can be daunting. The prospect of finding the right person who can empathise, listen with great care and attention is crucial. We all go through difficult life experiences and sometimes having someone who can talk to, that is impartial, compassionate and truly interested can make such an impact on someone's life. So often we hear "I'm not listened or heard" and this has a crushing effect on the soul. Therapy is expressing yourself without the fear of being judged or crticised. It allows you to be you! To explore why you feel the way you do and what can be done.

I work with adults, including older adults, who might be feeling a little bit stuck in life and may also be unable to put their finger on as to why they feel that way. I can work with common life problems and have worked with clients with suicidal ideation and self harming issues. I also work with clients with depression and anxiety to over come the difficulties that they may face in life. The ideal client for me may not quite know what they want to get out counselling, but we can work that out together and we will discover that together.

I work primarily with adults experiencing anxiety, depression and bereavement (I have particular experience in bereavement by suicide ).
It was Mr Miyagi in the movie “The Karate Kid” who said, “You know, but you do not understand.” We are often aware of the feelings and thoughts we are having, the behaviours they are causing and the distress that can generate. We can even know the traumas that have happened that we can attribute them to. But we can’t understand or articulate them enough to change them and heal. Perhaps this is the way you feel? Maybe you have been struggling with anxiety, depression or both for some time and everyday life is more challenging than you want it to be? Maybe you’ve experienced a traumatic event that you can’t seem to get over?

I have special interest in self-harm, suicidal ideation and childhood trauma resulting from neglect and abuse.
As a Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist, I was trained to carefully observe children and young people and respond to what they are consciously and unconsciously communicating through their behaviour, verbally and non-verbally, through unstructured play, their silence, and other ways to communicate their emotional difficulties or distress. I have several years working in the NHS in CAMHS, and with charity organizations, providing evidence-based therapy and individual & group interventions for children and adolescents and supporting the networks involved in their care so that they can build resilience, flourish and live fuller lives.

Depression, Suicidal ideation Self Harm.
I have taken £20 off my session fee to reflect the current cost of living crisis. Therapy should not be a luxury. I have been working as a therapist for 10 years and have a broad breadth of experience working with many presenting issue's. I take a warm, comfortable, welcoming and genuinely caring approach to my work. Asking for help can be very difficult and I recognise that. If you feel you have tried everything and nothing has changed then talking to a professional may help. You don't need to be in crisis to benefit from therapy. Therapy can be useful to increase awareness and provide understanding of why we do what we do.
