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, WhatsApp 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. If I think I am not the right person for you, I will point you in the right direction.

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. 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, Psychodynamic and much more.

Issues and treatments

On this page are a list of issues that I commonly deal with, with some further information on each issue (Issues and Treatments)


First Session: £25 (initial assessment): This provides an opportunity for us to meet and get to know each other, as it is important that you feel you can work with me.  You can ask me questions and we will discuss your goals for counselling /psychotherapy.
