About me

Welcome to Housemartin Counselling. My name is Stuart Brunning and I have been a qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist since 2006. I provide a safe and confidential space where you can talk about whatever is on your mind. I have counselled clients with the following presenting conditions, amongst others:

  • depression
  • eating disorders
  • stress
  • addiction
  • chronic fatigue syndrome and ME
  • bereavement
  • relationship difficulties
  • existential angst

I am a Person Centred Counsellor and Pyschotherapist and work with couples and individuals. The way I work is to follow your lead. I consider you to be the expert in your life and won't be diagnosing you or your issues. I will listen carefully and clarify anything that I'm not sure I understand. The therapeutic relationship is a living thing and is different with each person, but the safe space, full attention and unconditional regard for the client is something I endeavour to maintain with every client and every session. This creates the atmosphere where therapy can take place.

Training, qualifications & experience

BA in Physical Education and Sociology

Certificate in TESOL (Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages)

Certificate in Foundation Course in Psychotherapy and Counselling

Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy

Certificate in Registration of Counsellors & Psychotherapists, Registration number 075148

I see my experience in teaching as the first step towards my counselling career. The training for TESOL emphasised the need to elicit the answers from the student and in that way they would have to work for the answer themselves and would consequently remember it better. It seemed like a natural transition to counselling and in particular person centred counselling where the emphasis is put on the client. You know your world best and so helping you to express yourself about whatever is going on in your life is the focus. That way you are talking about your life and I'm not telling you what's going on for you. The idea is that you discover more deeply what's going on for yourself in a safe place where you won't be judged.
