About me and my therapy practice

Hi. I'm Mike.

My main specialities are anxiety and relationship problems, as I have worked in occupational health, helping people having trouble in relationships at work. I have also worked in domestic abuse where survivors have needed to overcome self-esteem issues due to the effects of toxic relationships.

Some anxiety is good, as it helps you protect yourself, but if you cannot sleep because of excess worrying or overthinking, you have panic attacks or feel uncomfortable in social situations, I can help you. I understand the links between these symptoms and different aspects of mental health issues, like anxiety and relationship problems, but also low self-esteem, depression, anger, men's issues etc, and I aim to help you understand yourself.

I am quietly spoken, calm and have lots of life experience which I will use to help me work with you as a listener as you unburden yourself and talk through whatever ails you. I see you as totally unique and the only expert on yourself, so I see my role as encouraging you to talk and properly process what you know about yourself and your issues.

I offer you acceptance in the hope you will feel able to talk freely, knowing you won't be judged by me, but understood and gently challenged at times to see things in a different light so you can learn how to change your present life for one that suits you better.

I am qualified in online counselling. Video, telephone, instant-messaging, text and email are all familiar ways of working for me. Face-to-face sessions are provided in private therapy rooms near the M1 in South Yorkshire.

One thing that might be of interest to you is that I offer a free telephone consultation so you can get an idea of what it would be like talking with me.

I am easy to get in touch with. Text, email, use the contact form on the website, or simply phone and leave a message if I am busy and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
