About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Shaun and welcome to my profile, I hope you find my details helpful. I'm a qualified, registered Counsellor & Psychotherapist MBACP (Accred) based In Oadby and Knighton Fields Road East, close to the University of Leicester, offering an initial telephone consultation FOC and reduced rates for students and those on a limited income. I have a current enhanced CRB certificate and hold full indemnity insurance.
I have over 7 years clinical counselling experience working with young people (16+) students and undergraduates, and over 11 years Psychotherapeutic clinical experience working with both adults and young people who present with an array of issues including, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, self harm and thoughts of suicide. My work typically tends to be around 6-12 sessions utilising CBT, Symbolisation and Solution Focused techniques for clients seeking counselling, and a more in depth Psychodynamic, Psychothereputic approach, which tends to explore childhood, adolescent and adulthood experiences over a longer period.
Most of us experience times in our lives when we feel low, worried or anxious. This might be because of specific difficulties such as anxiety, panic attacks or depression, it could also be a general sense of feeling down and simply not understanding why. Do you tend to prioritise other people's needs over and above your own for example? Talking to a trained therapist offers you the opportunity to explore what concerns you might have in a confidential, non-judgemental setting with someone who explores what life events might have contributed to these feelings.
