A Thoughtful Space

About Me

My name is Ben Jearum, and I began my journey into counselling when I faced my own struggles in life and at that point realised I couldn’t work it out on my own (I did try!). With this realisation I entered counselling and went through my own therapeutic process which led me to a deeper understanding of myself and the struggles I faced. With this newfound knowledge I underwent extensive training to become a qualified Counsellor and I now dedicate myself to continuing this learning process and sharing what I have learnt to help others. My work with young people and adults covers many areas including anxiety, low self-esteem, stress, depression, self-image, and relationship problems. I hold an interest in working with Borderline Personality disorder (EUPD).

Working With Me

Counselling for Young People and Adults

At the heart of my work I am a person-centred counsellor offering a safe and confidential space free of judgement and criticism. Our work is a collaborative process with the opportunity to explore and examine the struggles you currently face. Having a dedicated time to focus on yourself in an environment that offers insight and understanding can lead to a greater understanding of what stops you feeling your very best. The benefits of counselling can be improved self-esteem, greater confidence, less anxiety reduced feelings of stress and a better relationship with self and others. Not only do these benefits help with your mental health but also create better physical well-being. I currently offer online counselling and telephone counselling to young people and adults. I hold a recognised qualification in Therapeutic Counselling and Clinical Supervision, and I am a member of the BACP. I undergo regular supervision to maintain a highly robust and ethical service to all my clients.

Clinical Supervision

As a clinical supervisor I have the privilege of working with both trainee and qualified professionals supporting them in their therapeutic journeys. My approach is open, honest, and ethical. I offer one to one supervision and also run Group Supervision for organisations.

Reflective Practice Groups

I provide Reflective Practice Groups for organisations who want to support the well-being of their members of staff. This process focuses on the emotional well-being of each member and the group as a whole. This can lead to a growth in resilience and a healthier more productive work life. This benefits staff and organisations as a whole.

My work has included running Reflective Practice Groups for designated safeguarding leads, teachers, and support staff in a number of educational settings. My model of working can be adapted to fit organisations in other sectors too.


I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation at a time that suits you. Following this we would engage in a more in depth assessment.

Initial Assessment

Through years of experience I have learnt the value of an initial assessment which is a collaborative effort that enables us to formulate a plan to make sure you are getting the right help and support that you deserve. I will focus purely on you to better understand your presenting issues and your reason for committing to the counselling process. The consultation is the perfect opportunity for you to ask me any questions you may have and to express what you need from me and to understand how I can help you.

The Initial assessment fee for counselling is £75.


Online Counselling Sessions

Traditionally counselling sessions are for 50 minutes but I also offer the option of 90 minutes if you prefer a longer session.

50 minutes at a fee of £60

90 minutes at a fee of £90

Individual Clinical Supervision

60 minutes at a fee of £60

90 minutes at a fee of £90

Group Work

Please enquire about my fee for group supervision and reflective practice groups as I will need to understand your needs in more detail. This would include group size, duration of each session and overall length of your project.


I am an online counsellor based in in Frimley which is surrounded by areas such as Guildford, Farnborough, Farnham, Godalming, and Camberley. Working online provides me the opportunity to work with people further afield.
