Gabriel Facchini Therapist counselling and psychotherapyGabriel Facchini.

I am a BACP registered psychodynamic therapist and counsellor practicing in Canterbury and providing therapy in-person, online via Zoom and by telephone.

My consulting rooms are places where difficult feelings and issues can be thought about in confidence and with empathy. Working to support you in addressing difficult or painful issues from your past and present. While I believe many of the problems we face arise from external factors, I am influenced by psychoanalysis, and believe that unconscious processes often sabotage our best intentions and undermine our conscious goals and principles. By listening to what is going on beneath the surface, and through the experience of being together, I aim to gently bring to light what gets in the way of you reaching your full potential.

My clinical experience started at London’s longest serving counselling provider- Highgate Counselling Centre where I became a staff counsellor. I have taught counselling at The City Literary Institute, Holborn. I have also facilitated personal development groups for certificate and diploma students. Alongside running a private practice, I train Foreign and Commonwealth Office staff to assist British Nationals in crisis situations. I adhere to the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) Ethical Framework.

All enquiries will be responded to promptly. All communication is confidential.

It is usually helpful to have a phone conversation before arranging to meet. A free confidential 20-minute phone conversation is available to anyone wanting one. This conversation is an opportunity for us to get an initial idea about whether what I offer is right for you. Appointments and enquiries can be made by phone, email or text message.


Individual therapy sessions last fifty minutes. Daytime and evening appointments are available. I offer short term and open ended counselling and psychotherapy. However we decide to work, the therapy process requires a commitment to weekly sessions. Whenever possible, we would agree a regular time to meet on the same day each week.

Zoom and telephone sessions

When meeting face-to-face is not possible or not preferable, telephone or zoom sessions are excellent alternatives. My experience echoes that of many clients, in that both phone and Internet meetings can establish a personal, meaningful and therapeutic relationship quickly.

Zoom offers a secure and confidential audio-visual way to connect. Telephone sessions offer a degree of anonymity and intimacy that is different to both meeting face-to-face, and zoom. If you wish to work via zoom but are unfamiliar with the technicalities, I will guide you through set up during our free 20-minute phone call.
