About me and my therapy practice
Mike Stickley Counsellor FdA Couns. MBACP (Reg)
As a qualified and experienced counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) I am working towards my BACP accreditation. My Foundation degree is person centred based, which promotes the core conditions of congruence, empathy and unconditional acceptance of the client, and, along with the use of other therapeutic models such as Solution focused, Cognitive behavioural, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt therapies is used to establish the necessary therapeutic relationship required to enable clients to explore their own emotions and issues.
I believe that all people are individuals and unique and as such I treat them with dignity and respect with sessions personalised to reflect their individual needs.
I am committed to the principles of the BACP Ethical framework by working in an ethical, confidential and non-judgemental manner encompassing client’s cultural, sexual and religious diversities. I have worked with male and female clients in short and long term counselling.
I have always been a people person and interested in their personal perception of the world around them and the impact this has on their daily lives, and having worked in industry as a manager several years ago, I have some appreciation of the stresses and strains that working conditions can have on an individual’s mental health.
I also worked at MIND as a counsellor for 3 years until April 2015 and have experience of clients presenting with issues including depression, anxiety, work related stress, anger management, low self-esteem, relationship issues, bereavement, Asperger’s with associated depression/anxiety issues and olfactory reference syndrome (ORS).
In order to provide clients with the required and expected level of service, I also attend training courses to enhance my professional development.
