About me and my therapy practice

Morgan Walker Counselling is a private counselling and therapy service located in the heart of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. I offer face to face counselling sessions for adults, young people and couples.

Thinking about and then going into therapy can be a hard decisions a person can make. For you to realise that things are not how you wish them to be and to want to make a change is for most, the beginning of this journey. With counselling its all about journeys, journeys towards positive growth, recovery and self-empowerment. As a counsellor I recognise the courage it takes to make these changes and I am here to help support you on your journey. I offer you a safe and confidential setting as well as being respectful and non-judgementally.

As a counsellor, I am not here to give advice, but to listen and help you question the way you look at things, the way you behave or react to situations or people and also help you to develop new strategies for dealing with your situation. As counselling sessions progress, I will get to know you, develop an understanding of your circumstances, listening to what you have to say and offer support and insight.

Counselling sessions are flexible, professional and unique to the client. I work on an individual basis, usually offering clients one counselling session per week / fortnightly. I take an integrative approach to therapy which means that I explore the relationship between thoughts, feelings and physical experience, focusing particularly on the links between the past and the present.

In our work together you will develop a deeper understanding of how your past relationships and experiences continue to influence and affect you. This understanding can help in processing of thoughts, feelings, beliefs and behaviours, enabling you to make positive and lasting change.

My first session

An initial counselling assessment will be offered for all of the counselling services which Morgan Walker Counselling offer. This is a space for you to meet with me and start to explore what you are currently experiencing within life and how this is impacting you. The initial counselling assessment is a 50 minute appointment, which will be used to look at the contract as well as what issues have brought you to counselling. It will also be a chance for you to see if you are happy to work with me. Choosing a counsellor is an important step and it is okay to say that you don't wish to work with me as it needs to feel right for you.

Counselling sessions are flexible, professional and unique to you. I usually will work with you weekly or fortnightly but if you feel more or even fewer sessions are needed we can look into this. I take an integrative approach to therapy which means that I explore the relationship between thoughts, feelings and physical experience, focusing particularly on the links between the past and the present.

In our work together you will develop a deeper understanding of how your past relationships and experiences continue to influence and affect you. This understanding can help in the processing of thoughts, feelings, beliefs and behaviours, enabling you to make a positive and lasting change. Each therapy session lasts 50 minutes, an hour for couples and two hours for group counselling, with sessions, usually taking place once a week or fortnightly. I work with clients on an open-ended or short-term basis, both frequency and period will be discussed within the initial assessment session.
