About me

Hi there! I'm Adam 

I know that sometimes life can feel like a constant struggle,  experiencing difficult, uncomfortable and challenging feelings, thoughts and emotions.  Perhaps you are feeling stuck, feeling low, anxious or overwhelmed?  Maybe you are not sure what you feel but know something is wrong? Do you feel like you are always saying yes when you really want to say no? Perhaps you are finding it uncomfortable sharing with others what is going on for you? Feel like you do not want to be a burden?  Or feel unheard or dismissed if you do express how you feel?

If any of this sounds familiar to you, counselling may be a beneficial option for you. 

How Can the Counselling I Provide Help you?

I am a qualified Person-Centred counsellor.  I have experience helping clients explore and work through issues that includes: anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, confidence, emotional abuse and neglect, family issues. 

I provide individual face to face counselling for adults from my practice (Stillwell Counselling) at 28 Hoghton Street, Southport and online video sessions that can be accessed from the comfort of your own home or other location of your choice.  I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work in line with the BACP Ethical Framework for good practice and I am fully insured for the work I do.  

My counselling style is offering a safe, honest, non-judgmental therapeutic relationship to you which is empathic to your thoughts, feelings and experiences working at your pace through reflection and gentle challenge.  Openly sharing and exploring your thoughts and feelings at your pace can help gain a better understanding of them and what is going on for you. The process can be beneficial in moving towards connecting more to yourself, increasing self-esteem and confidence in trusting yourself in feeling better able to know what is best for you. 

 I understand that reaching out for support can often feel daunting, scary and difficult but it feels like you may be feeling able and ready to do so by being here.  Finding a counsellor you feel comfortable with is essential.  If you feel you could work with me, I would very much like to welcome you to get in touch when you feel ready to do so.  

What happens next

If you are interested in potentially working with me, want to ask me some more questions about the counselling I provide and how it could help you, you are welcome to email me or give me a call.  If I am unable to answer your call, I do invite you to leave me a voice mail and I will give you a call back as soon as I am able.   (Important: I am unable to return missed calls without a voicemail). 

A free bookable 15 minute telephone consultation prior to deciding on if you wish to attend a paid session is available - please contact me to book. 

If you have emailed me but not had a reply after 24 hours, please do check your junk/spam folder as it my reply may have gone there. If you also provide your mobile number when you enquire, I will send you a text to confirm an email to your enquiry has been sent to you.

Please note:  I am unable to provide counselling to couples or under 18s.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
