Andy Darling MBACP (Senior Accredited)
Maybe we've a nagging sense that there's 'something missing', feel shame about a specific event in our lives, believe we're out of step with how we're 'supposed to be', keep becoming overwhelmed by anger or sadness, or have a very specific issue we want to tackle. Counselling can provide the safe space that enables reflection, working through, and liberation.
Working and connecting with the client, that safe space is created, light can be shed on what may have previously been kept in the dark, and ways of coping, progressing and flourishing can be developed. There may well be laughter during the process!
Having worked in TV and magazines for many years, I felt a need to 'go deeper', and 17 years ago retrained as a counsellor, and later as a supervisor of counsellors. I'm now Senior Accredited. My original training background was psychodynamic,taking into account the client's past and how it keeps impacting now despite their best intentions, though I've also trained in CBT, NLP, hypnotherapy and mindfulness, and more recently Lifespan Integration. I don't take a 'one-size fits all' approach: whatever works for the specific client is the right approach. I work short and long term, and am available for Skype sessions in addition to working in person.
