Counselling and CBT Gravesend


My name is Sj Mason and I am based at Counselling  and CBT Gravesend practice. I’m a fully qualified family therapist, providing counselling, psychotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for both adults and children age 12+.

My experience at CBT Gravesend spans over 10 years. This has been in a variety of voluntary sector settings including foster care and disadvantaged young adults. I have one adult and two teenage sons so have personal experience with the difficulties that the different life stages can bring.

Humans can not always process stressful and traumatic events. And a lot of issues we have to deal with in modern society impacts our thoughts, feelings and behaviours.  EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a life changing therapy that I now offer after extensive training, dealing with symptoms of anxiety, phobias, excessive grief, changing unwanted behaviours and negative thoughts that are impacting your daily life. EMDR is the standard therapy for any Post Traumatic Stress

Counselling for children

As a qualified family therapist I am trained to look at the whole system. This means I will endeavour to work closely with the whole family if and when required. I work holistically rather than clinically, building a safe, secure environment for your child. Therefore, enhancing the therapeutic work we will do together.

My aim is to become more of a mentor, role model, friend etc for your child rather than a ‘therapist’. I do this in a fun creative way using games and crafts or by incorporating their likes/hobbies. Before I start work with you child I will arrange to have a telephone conversation with you in order to gain a background of the problems your child is experiencing.

Counselling for adults

My aim is to provide a warm, confidential and safe environment in which we can work together to explore your difficulties and help you make sense of things. I will help you gain insight and a better understanding of yourself and your issues, whilst providing you with the tools to enable you move forward more positively. The therapy I provide is not a specific mode, instead I will tailor my approach to suit your individual needs. I have a successful track record in helping people achieve the goals by providing confidential, non-judgemental support.
