I have availability to work with people face to face and online, in Heaton Moor, on Tuesday evenings.
About me and my therapy practice
Sometimes life can be challenging! Feelings of being stuck, lonely, frustrated, lacking confidence, of low self worth and struggling in relationships can be difficult to experience.
It's normal and understandable to want to reach out and connect with others, to receive support, acceptance and guidance , in order to move forward in new and positive ways. I also understand how difficult and frightening this can be to actually do.
Perhaps you'd like to feel calmer, more accepting of yourself and build confidence and develop new skills?
Maybe you'd like to have more rewarding relationships with others, learn to say No and set boundaries or even make peace with your past?
My name's Damien and I work with people to move toward developing better relationships with both themselves and with others. I can work with you to explore your past, your feelings, thoughts, attitudes and behaviors and how they inform and influence the present. In doing this we can work together toward you finding new and positive ways of being in the world and building the life that you want to live.
I'm a bacp registered Therapeutic Counsellor with ten years experience working in private practice. I've also worked with adults with severe and enduring mental health needs as well as adults with learning difficulties for the past 17 years.
If you think therapy could be beneficial for you then please feel welcome to contact me to discuss how we could work together.
My first session
Our first session is an opportunity to meet with one another and for you to get a sense of whether you feel comfortable and confident in our working together.
