Hello, my name is Phil and I am a Wirral based Integrative Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. I offer a confidential, ethical & compassionate service based on what is best for you. I’m here to listen; then, if and when you feel comfortable, to work with you to try and support you, find some answers or get some insight into what’s going on for you. Counselling is not about railroading people into things they don’t want to do; I am here to support you with your concerns and not add to them, making the decision to come to counselling can be very challenging, I am very aware and respectful of that.
In addition to my private practice I worked as a counsellor for a charity in Birkenhead & for seven years have worked helping people with drug, alcohol, criminality and homelessness issues gain employment in Liverpool City Centre & Birkenhead. I then worked with clients with health issues helping them get into employment and deal with the current changes that are occurring. This work has given me a deeper insight into the ills which plague individuals, communities and society as a whole, how these problems are the tip of the iceberg and how much counselling can help people explore, cope, grow & heal.
I currently teach 'Understanding Substance Misuse' and Counselling up to level 4 Diploma at Wirral Metropolitan College.
I have a broad knowledge of services available in Wirral & Liverpool for support with mental health, substance misuse, gender, disability, benefits and ethnicity and other counselling services if mine is not suitable for you.
Like most people I’ve experienced several of my own difficult periods in life and as a result have a well-rounded empathic view of life and people in general.

"I hit rock bottom in my life through drink and low self esteem, I was put in touch with Phil and to be truthful it was a turning point in my life, showing me that lives can be changed. Although I have lost a lot in my life the sessions gave me my confidence back. I have stopped drinking and respect myself a lot more, myself and my family cannot thank him enough, I hope he continues to do his great work" - (Male)
"I felt Phil understood my culture and background, he listened carefully to what I had to say and helped me get a different outlook on issues concerning me, he was comfortable to talk to and put me at ease." - (Female)
