I am Ben an enthusiastic and friendly therapist working in the Cheltenham area. I work in an integrative way with my main approach being person-centred therapy, this is because I truly believe you are the expert in your own life.
We can work together to make sure you get the most from life. I fully understand that if you are looking here then it is likely that things are not going as you would wish at the moment.
Counselling is a great way to deal with lives difficulties and maximise the enjoyment you get from your own life, I truly believe this.
I work with individuals in areas involving change and life's difficulties, especially around finding ways for you to maximise your enjoyment of life.
I do not shy away from difficult areas and fully understand that life can be a struggle - I am not a judgemental person and genuinely believe in people's innate ability to strive and I look forward to helping you.
I look forward to hearing from you, I am sure we can work well together.
I understand it can be a little daunting to start therapy but I will make sure it is as positive an experience as possible. I am a real believer in what can be achieved and have faith in you as a individual.
About me and my therapy practice
I work in central Cheltenham - Bath St, as well as Online or via Walk and Talk Therapy.
I am told I am very approachable and easy to talk to. I work with a wide range of issues and don't shy away from the difficult areas, so please don't feel that anything you bring to me, is going to be too much.
I think it is vitally important that you remain in control of your own life, so I like to work in a way that helps you to understand what makes you tick and gives you good strategies to make the most of your life going forward.
It isn't unusual to hear people say, I don't know who I really am and I think therapy can be so beneficial in that regard, and understanding what makes you tick and what isn't working for you at present can be really powerful.
So whether you are feeling low, anxious, have had suicidal thoughts, relationship problems, loss, or the myriad of problems that life throws at us, then I am here. Also areas such as feeling different to others, (whether that is neurodiversity or just feeling lost in society) then please reach out to me.
I work in a relaxed way, I truly believe that whatever we are exploring and however difficult that is, you should feel comfortable with me and that our sessions should feel a beneficial part of your week.
I appreciate it is daunting to make a step like reaching out to a counsellor but I understand that, so there is no pressure on you.
