Mike Walsh BA MPhil PGDip MBACP Reg. Harley St & E15 Counselling & Psychotherapy
I am a registered BACP integrative psychotherapist and counsellor with a unique response to each client. Certain counselling styles suit some people more than others, so I draw from a range of approaches to provide the right support for you. I am available for day, evening and weekend appointments. I balance empathy with challenge in my approach and I provide a warm, non-judgmental space which fosters authentic expression, reflection and insight.
Usually individuals choose to have therapy because they are experiencing difficulties and distress in their lives. Sometimes people can be isolated but at other times, even where an individual has the most supportive family and friends, they can find it difficult if not impossible to explain why, for example, they may be feeling anxious and or depressed. Or it may be easier to talk about personal, family, or relationship issues with a person who is independent of friends and family. Other life issues and events which can be very difficult to deal with include bereavement, divorce, redundancy, health issues, bullying and so on. However, you do not have to be in crisis or on the verge of one, before choosing to have therapy. You may be experiencing underlying feelings of dissatisfaction with life in general, or be seeking balance in your life and spirituality. All of these reasons and more will bring individuals to therapy.
