John Witney


I have been a therapist for over ten years.

I started my private practice in 2009 and I have worked with many people who have wanted to change or accept something about themselves or their life stories.

Issues that I have worked with include: anxiety and depression, loss and bereavement, relationship difficulties, work-related stress, addictions and addictive behaviours, serious illness or injury, and spiritual awakening.

I was also a volunteer counsellor at the Fountain Centre at Royal Surrey County Hospital for five years where I worked with cancer patients and their families as well as members of hospital staff.

I run a monthly Guided Meditation Group at Ripley Village Hall.

I am also a volunteer guide at Liberation Unleashed.

Therapeutic Approach

I practise an integrative model of counselling and psychotherapy which is informed by humanistic and person-centred approaches, psychoanalytic and psychodynamic theories, and transpersonal psychology. Due to its flexibility the integrative approach is highly adaptable and well suited to most people.
