My Counselling journey
Hello, my name is Henzy Tanrien-Sawyer (Dip.Couns; SAC.Dip) and I am a qualified experienced Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor and Mental Health Support Practitioner based in Bromley, Kent. I am also an individual member of National Counselling Society (NCS) and follow their ethical framework which informs my practice. I have a clean up-to-date DBS record.
My initial counselling journey started in 1998 in the social care field where I experienced adults, children, friends and family approached me to talk about their emotional and psychological issues. In 2003, I began my initial counselling training and used those skills within my social care field where I worked as a practitioner with children & families both in statutory and voluntary organisations for over 20 years.
I know and understand what it feels like to go through psychological and emotional distresses because it is something every human being have and will experience at various points in life. In 1990, I found myself overwhelmed with life's issues however, with counselling support, change happened in me over several decades as I discovered new truths about myself. My heart desire is to see that people who are experiencing mental, emotional and spiritual difficulties reach mental wellness. It is okay to seek help because you will not be alone. I am here with you every step of the way to help you and encourage you in your counselling journey,
My passion for working with vulnerable people so they can enjoy a mental wellbeing, prompted me to retrained as a counsellor. I enjoy working in a therapeutic setting providing therapy to adults, couples, children and young people from diverse backgrounds. This gives me opportunity to see and experience the uniqueness in diverse cultures, beliefs and background of how each client sees their own world. I use counselling skills such as empathy when listening to clients, seeing things from their own perspective without judgement, as we explore their problems and concerns together. I believe all my clients are unique human beings in their own way and have a right to access counselling if they chose to do so.

My personal testimony
Even though my journey in life hasn't always been an easy one, being a Christian with faith in Jesus Christ certainly helped me address emotional and psychological problems encountered as a child. Its been 30 years of feeling free in my mind and counselling contributed to allowing me find a new way forward as I experienced change and exploration over the years.
No matter your situation, Faith or Non-Faith, I care about your mental and emotional wellbeing. As we work together, what matters is when you start acknowledging and understanding that change will only happen when you put in the effort. I believe in you to reach that goal you are aiming for.
In my view, counselling is all about the client and what they are bringing to the session. What they are feeling and thinking and helping them understand they own journey as I work with them in an ethical and professional manner that does not compromise our counselling relationship.
