W. Alan Morris MBACP (Reg) Counsellor, Mediator and Supervisor

My philosophy is that we all have our internal battles which can as individuals bring us to a state of low mood which in turn may lead to anxiety, depression and in general feeling sad.
This can be caused by a myriad of factors such as stress at work, relationship issues and financial problems.
If left unchallenged this may lead to or already have Generalised Anxiety Disorder which is a state of being where someone becomes anxious about anything, depression where the sufferer finds it difficult to be enthuastic about activities they previously enjoyed.
My name is Alan and I offer face to face, Online and telephone Counselling Therapy service to Individuals, couples and families.
I have had many years experience of working with individuals, couples and families in a relaxed environment. There are some testimonals from previous clients later in this profile.
Counselling I believe helps redress that balance and make our internal battles more winnable.
I work with a wide variety of clients and provide a calm, safe space for all my clients centred around confidentiality and respect.
Clients come to counselling with issues which often cause great pain and distress feeling 'stuck' and paralysed with anxiety and low mood.
Day to day living can be stressful and counselling enables gentle exploration, expression of negative feelings and eventual rebuilding and restructuring of lives.
Perhaps you are feeling weary, tired and exhausted as a result of anxiety, stress and low mood. Maybe there are painful issues related to the family or to work on your own lack of perceived self worth.
By reading this profile you have already begun a healing process which counselling can promote and enables you to move on with your life with greater understanding and clarity.
