- I have 15 years experience working with many issues: Alcohol and Addiction problems, Anxiety, Depression, Self-esteem, Anger, Couples Counselling. Call me on 01482 641655 or text me on 07757 121009 or email. I can offer sessions weekdays outside of normal working hours until 8pm and Saturdays until 1pm.
I am an Integrative counsellor and mainly use CBT and the Person-Centred approach. I realise it may feel daunting to initiate a first session and I am happy to answer any questions you have over the phone or by email - it is very important that you find the right counsellor. I offer a relaxing and comfortable private room
at my home in Hessle near the river.
I trained as an Alcohol Counsellor in Eastbourne 2001 and gained my counselling diploma from Bexhill college in 2004 and my accreditation in 2011. I took part in a York University research programme into depression - the findings were published in 2013. I have also worked with young people for the Hull Youth Service and have experience of working with couples. I work for various EAP services with clients who have a wide range of issues.
I spent 5 years in the RAF and many years as a rock musician. Then, in 2000, decided to train as a counsellor. I still compose music and take long walks in the countryside to reflect and let my mind wander
MANY OF US ARE JUST NOT HAPPY WITH OUR LIVES AND WISH WE COULD MAKE BETTER DECISIONS AND FIND IT HARD TO DISCLOSE OUR DEEPEST THOUGHTS AND NEEDS. MAYBE TALKING TO SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T KNOW YOU AND HAS AN OPEN MIND COULD HELP YOU FIND A WAY FORWARD ?
ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT THE AMOUNT YOU DRINK AND WHAT IT MIGHT BE DOING TO YOU?
ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT SOMEONE AND JUST WANT TO TALK TO AN EXPERIENCED ALCOHOL COUNSELLOR? IF SO, PLEASE RING ME ON 01482 641655....ANY TIME !!!!
Comments from previous clients :
I made long term gains through the two of us examining the issues I find difficult. You took note of the negative and positive patterns in my life and helped me to develop strategies for being honest with myself which have helped me realise that I can be positive about myself when I make mistakes with the result that I have successfully fought against the trap of continual negative feelings. ( Comments made after 51 sessions)
"You've been extremely helpful. Very relaxed and good to talk to when I'm feeling down." ( After 11 sessions)
" You helped me tremendously with my depression, thank you for all your support." ( At the end of 12 sessions)
"Talking to you has really helped and thanks for all your encouragement and understanding" ( At the end of 6 sessions)
