Mental health is important

I have worked as a counsellor, coach and behvaoural consultant for 15 years. Over that time I have completed my Masters degree in counselling research and am currently writing-up my PhD thesis on using fun to live a better life.
Having been trained as a counsellor, psychotherapist and coach, and gained work experience at senior managerial levels in multinational companies, I have a unique skill set that can be used to help you.
They say information is power; I disagree. Understanding is power. Counselling is not about getting information about a problem; that is not going to help. Understanding always leads to action — putting you back in control
It’s good to talk. I am always willing to have a brief chat about what help you might want.
A COOL PROJECT
Being trained in a wide range of counselling approaches, I can be flexible in the method I offer my clients.
I work for you, and my selection of counselling tools and techniques will be based upon your needs, not on my own preferences. I encourage clients to ask me why I am using techniques or asking specific questions because if I cannot explain why I am using them, I should not be using them! I may not answer at the time because it may lead you in an answer – but I will let you know.
Whatever issues you are facing, I am here to help you as an individual or as a couple; providing you with a safe, confidential environment within which you can explore and develop new approaches to life and relationships. Offering you the chance to find balance and a new sense of wellness.
Feel free to contact me to ask about the help I can provide.
Focussing on Mental Health and Wellbeing
Dedicated to Mental Health and Wellbeing
As well as being an experienced counsellor, I also work with organisations large and small (local businesses, NHS trusts, Universities, police, housing associations …).
I have presented at national and international conferences on mental health and wellbeing issues as well as writing some articles in professional and academic journals on the subject.
My academic research supports my professional counselling work. I have a specific interest in conflict in its many forms; whether that is with other people or within ourselves; whether the issues are anger, depression, anxiety, relationship problems or even addictions.
I believe counselling should focus on fun; where fun is related not to instant gratification but our development as fully fledged human persons by growing emotionally and intellectually.
I aim to help you find a way to have fun in your life again. To achieve this aim, merely looking backwards in counselling is not enough, any work we do must help you approach the future with confidence in the tools and skills we develop together.
My focus is on developing a whole mental health approach which responds to your unique circumstances and concerns – be the anxiety, depression, self-esteem, or relationship difficulties. You may need to find relief from persistent sadness or anxious feelings as you go about your day, or maybe you need to find a way to communicate so that others hear you.
My approach helps you to find the tool and skills to live a mentally healthy life.
