John Hartland MSc


I am based in King’s Lynn, Norfolk. I offer a safe and confidential space in which to explore whatever issues that might be causing you problems.  As well as in-person counselling, I also offer counselling via Skype, Zoom, or over the phone by appointment.

John Hartland Psychotherapist and Counsellor

If you are struggling with anxiety, relationship problems, depression, low self-esteem, addiction problems and more, then you will no doubt find psychotherapy and counselling very helpful. 

It is very important that you feel safe and comfortable, and that is why I offer a £25 first session (initial assessment), so you can see if I am the right person for you. 

Being real and honest with someone in a trustworthy setting can be a great healer. My areas of expertise include overcoming depression, anxiety, anger, childhood trauma, shame and much more (see this page for a full list). I ask you at the start what your goals are and we agree a plan going forward. 

I am integrative in my approach, meaning I tailor the sessions towards you, drawing on many approaches, for example Cognitive Behavioural Theory (CBT), Schema Therapy, Compassion-focused therapy and more.
