About me

Life can feel extremely difficult at times often leaving us feeling overwhelmed, difficult to cope, stress, anxious and worried.  Perhaps you find it difficult or uncomfortable sharing with others what's on your mind and how you are feeling? Maybe you feel unheard if you do or perhaps it feels like you share too much?  Do you find it hard to say no to others or maybe you feel your needs are not as important?

If anything of this sounds familiar and you are feeling unhappy and fed up experiencing this and looking to make positive changes in your life, counselling may be a beneficial option for you.

Who Am I and How Can the Counselling I Provide Help you?

Hi, I'm Adam, a qualified Person-Centred counsellor.  I have experience helping clients work through issues relating to anxiety, depression, low self-esteem/confidence and relationship difficulties.  I can help you explore and work through the issues you are experiencing within a safe space. Having space to share and explore your own thoughts and feelings openly and at your own pace within an empathic, non-judgmental, genuine therapeutic relationship can help with gaining insight and clarity.  This can allow for a better understanding of who you are that can often feel empowering for building self-esteem and confidence for making decisions and choices that are right for you.

Reaching out to speak with a counsellor can often feel daunting and scary, but if you are reading this, I understand that you may be considering making contact or feel ready to do so.

Finding a counsellor who you feel comfortable with and feels right for you is important.  If you feel I am someone you could work with, please do get in touch and we can go from there.  I am also happy to provide a free no obligation 15 minute telephone informal chat before booking a first session.

Alternatively, please feel free to contact me via email.  If not able to immediately answer you, I will seek to get back to your enquiry as soon as possible.

My Availability

I am able to provide sessions Tuesday to Friday between 10am and 6pm and Saturdays between 10am-3pm.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
