April Clarkley PGDip Couns, MBACP

Psychotherapeutic counselling for adults, adolescents and children 

April is currently on maternity leave.


April is a therapeutic counsellor, with further qualifications in child and adolescent psychotherapeutic counselling.

April offers help with a wide variety of issues including self-esteem, grief, loss, relationship difficulties and breakups, anger, anxiety, depression and stress, trauma and abuse to both adults and children.


She will discuss at the initial assessment every individual’s needs, hopes and outcomes and works with the client to help achieve these.

April provides a confidential, non-judgemental and supportive environment in which clients can explore, understand and work through problems and difficult emotions that many struggle with. 

April trained to work with an integrating method, which allows her to draw upon a range of therapeutic approaches and techniques to suit individual needs and personal circumstance.

When working with children, April will adapt the sessions accordingly, using either a child lead or more structured approach. Play therapy skills may be used, where toys, sand and creative materials help the child to make sense of challenging situations and feelings.


April now also offers an effective one session therapy for Phobias, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other trauma-related distress, available to both adults and children.


As well as working at Southcote, April also provides counselling to a number of schools and fostering agencies around Kent.
