About me and my therapy practice

Welcome, I go by my middle name, Stuart.

When people ask "Dr Wilson, what is distinctive about the way you work with clients?", three principles emerge. The most important is I “see” the person, not their problem, and I am not blinded by their symptoms (such as anxiety, depression, stress, feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness or loneliness). I know that behind a battle with any problem, difficulty or loss, is another human being, a unique individual, a fellow traveller.

Addressing a mental health issue is as much about learning (my Doctorate is in Education Leadership) as it is about healing, it is about getting to know previously unseen parts of ourselves, and learning how to improve communication between our different parts. I help people to help themselves. As the old adage goes:

  • "Give someone a fish, and you feed them for a day; teach  someone to fish, and they will feed themselves for life."

I can help clients move from healing to development, and my role transforms from counsellor to more of a coach.

I am always careful never to confuse the person with the situation they find themselves in. We all have problems, but it is how we face them that matters, not how the world judges us. People have always been important to me, and I accept them for who they are. I like to think I can talk with anyone. It is what makes us tick that matters, what makes us sing and what makes us cry; our drives, interests and purposes.

It is a real privilege to work with people facing difficult times, to offer myself as guide to those brave unsung heroes or heroines. I can’t help notice that when people address their darkest thoughts and negative feelings, it is as though a light is switched on inside them. They became much happier and live more fulfilled lives. Mental health and well-being is not just about getting rid of bad things, it is also about opening ourselves up to wondrous things.
