About John Barton
I'm interested in you, your difficulties and your life transitions, whatever they are, whether great or small. Such transitions can be a choice, but often are demanded of us by illness, divorce, bereavement, redundancy, trauma, stress or other hardship. It's a hard-knock life, as the song goes. But it is from our darkest hours that we can emerge, accept and own our vulnerability, and discover our true strength. About me: I worked as a magazine writer and editor in the U.K. and then for a decade in the U.S. before returning to my home town, London. Volunteering at the Central London Samaritans inspired me to train to be a counsellor, which changed everything, marking a switch from what Jung called “the morning of life” to the very different afternoon. Today, I work in private practice in Marylebone, central London. I am a UKCP-registered and BACP-accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist.
