Phil Turner MBACP (Accred) counsellor & integrative supervisor
01453 87 37 26 / 07843 06 07 07
I work collaboratively and creatively with clients, guiding and supporting progress towards your aims. The content and nature of my therapy is tailored to each individual, I seek to understand each clients' situation, adopting ways of working and a pace to suit you.
As my clients get to know themselves better and challenge and change aspects of who they are, they most often speak of results in terms of having: the confidence to move forward, better relationships and more clarity about who they are and their direction in life.
Some people find the confidence they want in just a few sessions, often recovering a sense of their 'old self'. For long standing issues and lasting change an open ended arrangement is more suitable.
My counselling works for people who are experiencing emotional pain of any sort. However it is particularly useful for those:
- Whose experience includes a loss of direction, purpose and zest for life
- Who have realised that something has to change on the inside before it can change on the outside
- Who, despite their fears, have the courage to enter unknown territory in order to find a new way
Prior to becoming a qualified counsellor in 2007 I worked in business, management and as a certified management consultant.

Training, qualifications & experience
Prior to becoming a qualified counsellor I worked first in business and management and later as a certified management consultant.
In 2004 I commenced my training for a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling at the Psychosynthesis and Education Trust. During my training I commenced work as a voluntary counsellor with a community counselling service, remaining with the organisation for five years.
Since qualifying as a counsellor in 2007 I have worked in private practice and for four years worked part-time as a telephone counsellor with PPC, an 'employee assistance programme' provider (EAP) and I am currently working as an occasional affiliate counsellor for Health Assured, another EAP.
In 2008 I co-founded Cotswold Talking Therapies, an organisation that provides services to the public and to therapists in the Cotswold area and I am still actively involved with the organisation.
In 2013 I was awarded accreditation for counselling/psychotherapy by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
In 2013 I also undertook integrative supervision training at the Minster Centre and I was awarded my diploma in Integrative Supervision in 2014. I offer private supervision as part of my practice and am currently a Volunteer Supervisor for Listening Post counselling service in Cheltenham.
