John Urquhart, MBACP (Snr Accred), Counsellor & Supervisor
I am a professional qualified and BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor with extensive experience since 1996. My experience embraces working with PTSD in a hospital setting, over two years as a sessional counsellor at Hull University, referrals from EAPs as well as varied private clients with equally varied issues.
I believe that those who seek counselling are just ordinary people who are looking for objective support to get through a difficult time, and to make changes that would empower them. Counselling is a process where the client is supported to find her/his answers to the problems that they bring to the sessions. I believe that we all have the capacity to resolve our problems, and that we often have more choices than we think.
Does talking therapy work? Yes, for many people it does, and we could discuss this at the assessment session. I counsel from Newport Village which is easily accessible from both the M62 and A63 and there is off-street parking and wheelchair access. My aim is to provide a safe, containing environment where my clients can express and explore difficult feelings and thoughts in complete confidence. It may be very difficult for you to pick up the phone but perhaps that first brave act may lead you to your making positive changes to your life.
Why not give me a call today or text me on 07592 520198 to arrange an assessment session when we can look at the issues you may wish to bring to the sessions, and assess each other to see if we can work together.
