Phil Puttock (MBACP) BA (Hons) Counselling & Personal Development Support.
A warm welcome!
Sometimes we may feel lost, scared or unable to articulate how we are feeling. It might be difficult or too painful to approach family, friends or colleagues.
I understand from personal experience how daunting it can be to talk to a complete stranger about how you are feeling. I entered my own personal therapy feeling lost and stuck in my life. Having space to process my feelings and be empathically listened too was a positive experience, and led me to train as a counsellor.
What can I offer you
Counselling & Emotional Support
I offer you a Caring, Friendly and Safe space, knowing what you share will be treated both confidentially and sensitively. I will always work at your pace. Together, we can identity what you want to gain from counselling and what support I can offer you. There is no issue or problem that is too big or too small. I can work with you short-term or longer term. I can work with clients who are 18+
I can also work with you around bereavement/loss of a pet. This is something that we do not assume we can get support for. Our pets are not just pets, but family too!
Mentoring, Coaching & Personal Development
I can also work with you from a Personal Development and Mentoring/Coaching approach. We can look at what your goals and ambitions are,or look at where you feel stuck and what you would like to be different. You might not be sure what you want to be different and together we can work with this.
Reflective Practice & Employee Well-being
I can work with organisations and employees who might want in-work emotional support. I can facilitate Reflective Practice Groups or other forms of support. Please enquire for more details.
My Training & Experiences
I am Integrative-Relationally trained; this means that I draw on a range of approaches best suited to support you. I also believe that the relationship between us can be healing in itself. I have experience of working with clients, with various presenting issues in a GP Surgery, a Mental Health charity and a Carers Centre.
I work at a local mental health charity - MIND, along with 6 years experience offering adults and young people emotional support to enter employment, training or volunteering. I am also a Co-Facilitator for an Anger Management Group Therapy Programme and a Volunteer for a Mentoring Scheme.
As a Registered Member of the BACP, I abide by their code of ethics :
I also attend regular Training and CPD courses to keep up to date with my knowledge and skills. My work is overseen by an experienced practitioner who ensures I continue to work in your best interests.
I understand making that first call or email might be hard, but please be assured I will respond promptly, but more importantly warmly. The below list of "Areas of Counselling" are not exhaustive. If there is something that you would like to discuss that is not listed below, please do contact me. I would be more than happy to talk to you.
