Adrian Smith MBCP , PD dip
I am the owner of Infinity Counselling & Wellbeing, I offer counselling across Weardale, Teesdale, Bishop Auckland and the surrounding areas.
I work with individuals, couples and groups with a range of issues.
I have been a qualified Counsellor for over 15 years and worked for both the NHS and the private sector.
My approach is to use the full range of counselling approaches and adapt them to best meet the need of the client. By doing this all my clients receive the very best that counselling has to offer.
As I cover a wide rural area I do a Counselling at Home service where I come to you, this is for people how would like to have counselling but find that distance / mobility prevents them from doing so.
Eco counselling is also something I offer, it takes us outside of the standard counselling room into the outdoors and uses nature as an aid to counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified BACP counsellor, over the years I have undertaken ongoing training to constantly update my skills and offer the very best service.
I believe that the best form of training is experience and with 15 years of that under my belt, you can be assured that you are in safe hands.
I have worked for the NHS, Charity and my own private practice.
