Mark Kirwin MA UKCP
I have over 30 years experience working with individuals, couples and groups. I'm confident that by now, my work is thoroughly infused by my many characteristic eccentricities! Hopefully they don't intrude, but rather enable me to help you to live soulfully with your own.
I offer counselling, psychotherapy and supervision. I work from a broadly holistic viewpoint, avoiding narrow specialism which I feel often leads one to ignore vital, wider contexts and the depths hidden there. I try to understand symptoms as the mute, yet eloquent language of psyche and endeavour to relate them to the essential in our lives.
My main conceptual frameworks are transpersonal ( psychosynthesis and archetypal psychology) and existential. I can offer short-term focused counselling or longer term depth work.
