About me and my therapy practice
Hello my name is Chris, I am a Lincoln based Integrative counsellor, this means I use several proven theories of counselling depending on the presenting issues. This allows me to adapt my approach to help with different situations which life can throw at us.
I have been working with people in crisis for over 25 years and during this time feel this has given me a greater awareness of how people deal with situations in different ways. It has raised my understanding of not only the difficulties people face but how much we all need support and guidance at certain times of our lives. Maybe you just want to talk your situation through in a safe, confidential and comfortable environment. I offer this environment. My service is sensitive, non judgemental and my professional approach allows a relationship to build which can help develop and enhance your overall well being.
I feel I have an understanding nature and I am certainly driven to help others to reach their full potential. I see integrity as a big part of my character and this I am sure helps build an open and honest relationship with my clients, this atmosphere fosters a safe and trusting environment. I have worked as a 121 counsellor within a Hospice setting, University student well-being centre and Forensic mental health as a staff counsellor.
