About me and my therapy practice

Hi, My name chris. I am from an integrative background which means I can draw on different therapies to ensure you get the right therapy for you. I will work with you so you can explore your thoughts and feelings and the reasons you have sought counselling.

Talking therapy is a way to express how you really think and feel in a respectful, warm, safe and non-judgemental environment, with someone who is impartial and not emotionally involved, you may not want a resolution but a better understanding of yourself, relationships. Therapy is a time solely for you, time to reflect and make changes as you move forward in life.

I have extensive experience working with clients who are struggling within relationships, with the current situation of Covid-19 your relationships may have come more strained. Taking the first step to contact me is not being weak, its is STRENGTH that you are acknowledging that something deep down that needs to change.


Practice description

As an Integrative Counsellor, I use the following counselling approaches individually tailored to your needs:

Person-centred - accepting the individual as they are and believing they have the capacity within themselves to change and achieve their full potential, given the right therapeutic conditions.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) - changing unhelpful thoughts and behaviours which have been accumulated through life experiences.

Psychodynamic - understanding the ways in which unconscious processess and past experiences shape present behaviour.                                                           

My first session

Initially,  I offer a 30 minute free Telephone  consultation where we can discuss the difficulties you are experiencing.
