My name is Jon Henderson and I am an experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor and professional therapist based in Hassocks, West Sussex. I offer a safe, confidential and professional space in which you are encouraged to explore your reasons for coming to counselling. We can work on a short-term or longer-term basis, as needed.
Counselling and therapy services
I specialise in working with a broad range of adult clients who come to me with a variety of mental ill-health issues or emotional distress. These typically include:
- Addictions including alcohol, drugs, gambling, gaming, sex, eating disorders
- Anger & Anger Management
- Anxiety, Fear & Phobia
- Depression, Grief and Loss
- Trauma and Recovery
Using Transactional Analysis (TA) and Person Centred Therapy, I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapy practitioner helping you work through your thoughts and feelings, with clear stated goals that we both understand and move towards.
Transactional Analysis (TA) is a widely recognised and arguably the most accessible form of modern psychology. It is designed to promote personal growth and change, as a fundamental therapy to achieve wellbeing and help individuals to reach their full potential in life. We will work directly on problem solving behaviours, developing day-to-day tools for finding constructive, creative solutions.
Person Centred Therapy is a humanistic approach that sees individuals as having an innate tendency to develop towards their full potential, which may become blocked or distorted by certain life experiences. We will work to help you better understand your own feelings and reconnect with your inner values and sense of self-worth.

I have trained extensively in psychotherapy and counselling and hold a Postgraduate Diploma in TA (Transactional Analysis) Psychotherapy Practice. Since 2006, I have worked within a 12 Step Program for Alcohol Addiction and have many years of experience of providing therapy for all kinds of addictions and related traumas.

Whatever your reason for considering therapy, I can provide a safe, non-judgemental and supportive environment in which to address your issues and help you move forward with your life.
Counselling sessions in Hassocks
Our first appointment is usually up to 1 hour long. This will give you an opportunity to assess whether you feel comfortable with me as your counsellor, while I get a chance to find out more about you so I can be sure I can provide the therapy that you need.
If we decide to go forward with ongoing talking therapy sessions, these will take place weekly at the same time/place. 50-minute sessions for individuals are charged at £50 each, 90-minute sessions for couples carry a £75 fee.
Sessions usually take place at the Heeler Centre, which is located next to Hassocks Station and easily accessible from Brighton, Lewes, Haywards Heath and beyond. If you prefer early morning or late evening sessions, or are in need of low-cost tariffs, please contact me for details.
