Mark Conlon Dip.Couns. Registered MBACP
I am a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
There are times in all our lives when we struggle to make sense of things and feel overwhelmed, whether in our relationships or working lives, due to bereavement or any major life change, which can often leave us feeling depressed, anxious, sad or with a lack of motivation and energy because we cannot see a way through. If your emotions are confusing or overwhelming then talking about them can bring clarity.
How can I help...
Sharing your anxiety is the first step to making it more manageable, and if you’ve suffered a deep loss then having someone to walk with you through your grief can help the healing process enormously. As a compassionate counsellor my aim is to offer you the opportunity to do this in a welcoming, safe, supportive, non-judgemental and confidential space to experience a relationship which provides support and encouragement as together we explore ways to facilitate psychological health and growth, helping you discover a new perspective and more comfortable way of living.
To seek help requires a leap of faith and I never underestimate the courage it can take to make that leap. Making a decision to go for counselling can seem overwhelming and daunting therefore I offer a "free" initial consultation so that you can meet me and decide without obligation whether I am the right counsellor for you. This is an opportunity for you to see if you feel comfortable with me and the way we would be working together.
I work from a peaceful and confidential room in Stourbridge. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have and give you further details over the telephone. Please use my confidential answerphone to leave a message and a convenient time to call you, and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
