Phil Dee MBACP Counsellor and Psychotherapist
Hello and thank you for taking the time to read about me. I am a friendly, experienced, fully qualified person-centred counsellor. I am committed to working with compassion, sensitivity and warmth to help you feel safe to explore any issue impacting on your life, including a general feeling of unease or dissatisfaction that is hard to name but difficult to live with.
It can feel daunting to start counselling. If this is a new experience, how can you know what to expect? When you are ready to take that first step you can be assured of my full attention and that I will treat you with complete respect - I will not be judging you or pressurising you in any way. You will be given time to take things at your pace and I will listen to you properly - possibly in a way you have not experienced before. In sharing whatever you are able, you may gain a deeper understanding of yourself which helps you find life more satisfying or comfortable. As there is no-one exactly like you, your ways of changing or coping will be unique to you. I will work with you, upholding your individuality and your right to be you.
Working at a city centre counselling agency I have enabled many men and women find their way through a wide range of difficulties including: depression; physical and sexual abuse; addictions; relationship issues; anxiety; ill-health and work related stress.
I now work from home in a dedicated therapy room in a quiet residential street. There is ample on-street parking or easy access by bus or train.
