About me and my therapy practice
I am a person-centred therapist who puts you and your needs at the centre of everything we do. I'm down to earth, personable, non-judgemental, a great listener and therefore very easy to talk to.
I am currently offering Telephone counselling for those who want or need to stay at home.
I help to explore the reasons that bring you to counselling in a sensitive way, offering empathy whilst helping you to understand yourself and/or others better and together we can discuss strategies that may help you to get to wherever it is you want to get to.
I work with all ages of adult individuals as well as couples and work with a wide range of issues from anxiety, depression, bereavement, life changes incidents and life stresses.
I understand that seeking counselling and approaching a counsellor can be difficult which is why I offer a free twenty minute assessment so that I can be sure that I can help you and you can also check me out to see if I'm right for you?
Also, if there's anything else you want to know, then please feel free to ask. Thank you and take care. Mike.
My counselling room is a small (cosy) space located in the same building as Northwich Physiotherapy and Treatment, where there are lots of other holistic therapies as well as Pilates and other businesses. I have my own private room which is used purely for counselling and is a very private and comfortable place where I'm sure you'll feel at ease.
There is plenty of free parking, a ramp for wheelchair access and there are toilets on site.
My first session
After welcoming you in and hopefully putting you at ease I will start the session with an assessment of your needs to see if we can work well together. It is really important that you feel comfortable opening up to me, therefore I give you an opportunity to leave with absolutely no cost or obligation to continue after we have completed the assessment.
If we both agree to continue then we can complete a full hour and I will work at your pace so I'm lead by whatever you want to share with me, you don't need to tell me everything straight away if you're unsure, I understand that it may take time for you to trust me?
