About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I'm John and I offer counselling and personal therapy in a relaxed and informal setting. I create an easy open confidential space, allowing you to talk about any issues in your life which are getting on top of you or problems that may feel too overwhelming to overcome alone.
I believe the counselling relationship is built on trust and understanding and I have experience working with clients from different cultures, of a wide age range and with varied life experiences. I am a non judgemental and open-minded individual with a genuine interest in supporting personal development. I believe my personal attributes and theoretical knowledge comprise the essential tools to support healing, growth and moving forward.
I am an integrative counsellor and use a range of approaches, especially person centred and psychodynamic. I also use CBT and gestalt where this will be helpful for an individual with whom I am working. I am a full member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy)
