Dirk Hansen MS, MBACP (Accred) Counsellor
16 Hamilton Terrace
I provide a safe and confidential counselling service. Emotional problems can be complex and difficult to understand, but I believe that there are simple and effective means to gain relief from your symptoms so you can feel better soon. My approach is to first understand the primary cause of your distress and the unique situation that led you to seek counselling. Then we can work together to make sense of your circumstances, and to develop solutions so you can begin to make helpful changes in your life.
I bring over 20 years' experience to my counselling practice, having managed a number of large clinical services, including serving as Clinical Director of a global Employee Assistance Programme based in London, and as Chief Executive for a national UK charity delivering psychological services. My background and experience has been extremely valuable, as it allows me to support you more effectively by coming from a place of knowledge about a wide range of issues.
Using solution-focused and cognitive behavioural approaches as well as family systems therapy, I am keen to tailor the counselling I provide to fit your circumstances, personality, and current stage of change you are in. I can work with many emotional and psychological issues including anxiety, depression, addiction, anger management, family issues, adjustment to change, workplace stress, relationship issues, bereavement, and personal growth/career progression.
I am a BACP accredited Counsellor and a member of the BACP Coaching Division. I received my training in the USA and hold qualifications in both the US and the UK. I also hold certifications in Anger Management and Multi-cultural counselling.
