About me and my therapy practice
Counselling for Change; hello and welcome.
Honest, pro-active, compassionate, listening and sharing, being real, using metaphor and humour, effective, atheist, gender positive, re-framing, down to earth, insightful, intuitive, ethical, creative with buttons. If that sounds like the kind of counsellor you’re looking for, give me a call.
I have worked as a Personnel Manager, Trainer, Employment Specialist, plus working in a call centre, an estate agency and as a Project Manager. And also a Lorry Driver, a Factory Operative and Retail Assistant and a soldier in the Territorial Army. Divorced, bereaved, a Father and Step-Father and having got over my own depression and anxiety. So whilst I’ve trained as a counsellor, I remain very grounded and down to earth, and if my experience is useful when working with someone, then I will draw on it.
Counselling it strange isn’t it? You to go to see this guy who is a complete stranger and tell him all your most personal problems? Like making a new ‘friend’ only I am a single use friend, where because you know you’ll never see me again after your work is finished, you can tell me everything. I’ve had people come in for counselling, talk non-stop for an hour, thank me and never return. I guess they just needed to unburden themselves.
I work from Huddersfield or Elland, with the option of a wheelchair accessible room subject to availability. Taking the first step can be the hardest thing you will do. If you would like to find out a bit more about what counselling can offer you, call 07796 385474, or email to book a free 30 minute telephone discussion to enable you to decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
