About me

Hi, my name is Andy and I specialise in helping people with anxiety and depression and those who are Highly Sensitive. It’s a subject that is close to my heart as I have suffered from these conditions previously in life.

I can offer face to face counselling, on-line counselling via Skype, or telephone counselling.

Anxiety and depression, often they come hand in hand and it can make us feel extremely overwhelmed. It can be debilitating to many areas of our lives and have a negative impact on our self-esteem, relationships, confidence and outlook on the world.

I am 43 years old, an experienced BACP registered counsellor. I provide a confidential safe space without judgement for you to express what is making you unhappy.

I now gain a great degree of satisfaction in helping others to move out of the darkness and to begin living life in the now. I do this by using Person Centred listening skills, empathy and CBT (if you require).

By talking, reflecting and using the correct tools you will be able to;

-       Decrease anxiety

-       Recognise the special person that you are (you are enough!)

-       How to combat depression

-       The importance of self-care

One in five people are understood to be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) why do I mention this? I work on average with fifteen clients per week and I’m noticing a strong correlation between anxiety, depression and low self-esteem with those who are Highly Sensitive. You can find out more about the HSP via the website link below:

This is an area that I am passionate about and happy to explore with you if you would like.

I have two locations; Lifeways, Stratford-upon-Avon and the Spring Clinic in Leamington Spa.

I also offer telephone and on-line counselling via Skype.

Testimonies

"Thank you very much Andy for all your help. You were really easy to open up to, I felt relaxed talking to you and really listened to. You always helped me come up with goals and things to try to make things better, and you kept me on focus about what was really important to me. I went through a lot in the weeks I was talking to you so thanks for being there! I feel like it’s been the start of a bit of a journey but the start I needed."

"Andrew was a massive help to get me through a very difficult time. He gave me strength to work through the problems I was having, and now I feel stronger and more confident.   He made me feel welcome and really listened, and gave amazing advice. If I ever needed help again I would definitely see him."

"Andy helped me to see things from a different perspective and to re-evaluate my situation. Counselling has helped me understand the way I am and the tools that Andy gave me have really helped."
