Adam Shaw MSc Therapeutic Counselling MBACP BSc (Hons) Psychology
Welcome to my profile page.
I have been working in a GP surgery since 2007 for a counselling charity as well as working in private practice and this has provided me with extensive experience working with people struggling with a broad range of problems (see below for details).
How counselling can help
Exploring your difficulties in a safe and confidential environment can lead to a greater understanding that can bring about change through a shift in personal, relational and external perception regarding those problems. These cognitive (thinking), psychological and emotional shifts can help us work through those issues, manage the often overwhelming feelings that may be associated with them, and create a set of tools that can help us deal with any other difficulties life may throw at us in the future.
My approach to counselling is integrative, drawing from multiple theoretical backgrounds to suit the needs of my clients. I am also a qualified counselling tutor and clinical supervisor.
In addition to general counselling issues I have had extensive experience working with;
Self-esteem and confidence,
Loss and bereavement,
Anxiety and panic attacks,
Stress management and work related issues,
Relationship issues (including family issues),
Trauma and abuse.
Working in a variety of settings, I offer both long and short term counselling and I have experience working with adults and adolescents.
