About me and my therapy practice
Hi. My name is Mike. I'm a professional counsellor and registered nurse. If you have been bereaved by suicide, are struggling with challenging health issues, are a healthcare worker experiencing stress or have any other emotional difficulty I can offer you support.
I have been using counselling skills as a therapist and nurse for the past 20 years to help people like you through dark, challenging times.
In addition to my professional training and experience, I have been able to draw on my own personal experience of life, suffering and therapy to enhance my relationship with my clients.
Whatever you are going through right now or have been through in the past, I can offer you an honest, caring and accepting place that is confidential so you can safely explore and talk about your thoughts and feelings without fear of being judged or shamed.
Apart from being in private practice, I am also a:
Volunteer Addiction Counsellor with We Are With You (formerly Addaction)
Crisis Volunteer with Shout, a 24-hour crisis text help line
Volunteer Listener with 7 Cups, an anonymous live text service
I'm particularly interested in helping people with:
Suicide Related Bereavement
Health & Medical Problems
Work Related Stress in the Healthcare Service
I work with clients on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
Even just a few sessions of counselling can be life changing.
"I want clients to know that I have wrestled with therapy and with life and will share their journey." (Charles Kramer)
