Hi my name is Mark Wood. I am a Qualified Therapeutic Counsellor
A registered member of the BACP & listed on the Accredited Voluntary Register
Have you lost your zest for life? Struggling with feelings or emotions and wonder what's going on?
Feeling depressed/anxious/angry/sad/stressed or Up & down with your moods? don't know what your feeling and don't know why it seems to impact on your life? Having thoughts that you just can't get out of your head? or would like to off load?
Struggling with a relationship? wonder what your doing here or trying to find a reason to carrying on?
Its not a nice place to be.
Why not give me a chance to help you try to make sense of what's going on?
I can offer a free 1/2hr assessment meeting to see if you feel we could work together
I specialise in working with Individual Adult Clients and offer long term counselling or short term interventions/support
I have found that experiencing life can be very different.
I feel my own very varied life experiences have given me the ability to understand and empathise with others in a very caring and non-judgemental way.
I'm told by my clients that I am easy to be with, supportive and very understanding.
I have experience working with
- Suicidal thoughts/Self harm
- Victims of abuse
Not forgetting the many issues and stresses we face in day to day life, maybe fears of the future as well as the ones from the past.
It is my aim to offer support in a non-judgmental manner within a confidential and safe environment to help you explore and your concerns
I work with a person-centred approach and try to personally tailor it for you
I believe we are all very unique in our own way and can all have very different needs.
I work from a comfortable office in Gravesend that is close to public services, there is public parking close by.
