5 Years Experience

Hey there!

I’m Chris, welcome to my counselling profile, it’s nice to make contact with you.

Humour and sensitivity are a big part of who I am as a person, and I believe that comedy and tragedy are closely linked. If you decide to work with me, expect to be challenged in a kind sensitive and where appropriate humorous way. I find thinking in depth with another person stimulating, rewarding and refreshing. I have common sense and can see the irony in a situation. Through years of personal therapy, I have developed my emotional intelligence and I'm happy to share this with you.

In a stressful, pressure-filled world, many of us face difficulties that can be hard to overcome, be it in your day-to-day life; in a relationship, depression, loneliness, issues with your job, or an unresolved concern.

I know it can sometimes feel difficult to make the decision to access counselling. However, you often have a better chance of making the changes you want to make when you are supported by a qualified person with experience to help you.

Together we can work to create a personal plan of work which best suits your requirements. Whether it be exclusive talking therapy or a combination of talking plus creative therapeutic approaches.

I don't aim to fit you into my way of working, my aim is to find out from you, how you tick and what might best assist you to move towards your goals. I aim to offer a calm and confidential environment where you can explore concerns that are troubling you, without fear of being judged or criticised. In a safe environment, thoughts and feelings can be explored and repeated patterns of behaviour identified, some of which may have a bearing on your current problem.

A counselling relationship is maybe unlike any other relationship you have experienced, it requires a great deal of active participation on your part. It is the counsellor’s role to help you to find answers to your questions and make better sense of your current life situation. Gaining a clearer appreciation and understanding of your problems is the first step to making changes. Counselling gives you the opportunity to take stock of life and address issues which are making life difficult.

Whether you suffer from:

Anxiety.
Depression.
Addictions.
Trauma.
Phobias.
Are an adult survivor of childhood emotional, physical or sexual abuse.
Don't feel right.
Are you not in the position in life you expected to be at this point?
Need some help moving forward?
Struggling to cope at work.
Want to change careers.
To learn that it's ok to say "No"
Anger management.
Been raped or attacked.
Feel you've had a happy childhood but don't know why you aren't moving forward in the direction you expected to be in.
Want to learn to like yourself.
Understand why you keep making the same mistakes and change that behaviour.
Be the parent of a person suffering difficulties in life?
Parent struggling with a child with complex needs or illness.
Children leaving home.
Be a child struggling with a parental relationship.
A carer for someone with dementia.
Longing for a child.
Long term illness.
Bullying / cyber bullying.
Stress.

Feel free to contact me, I will do my best to assist you.

I am at present working in a thriving private practice, which includes:

1. Private client sessions in person, via Zoom or Telephone.
2. Life and Business Coaching.
3. Professional Mentoring.

Best wishes,

Chris
