Andrew Byrne FdSc MBACP Integrative Counsellor
Whatever problems or issues that have led you here can be worked through. You may be feeling anxious, stressed, depressed or have no clue why you are feeling how you currently are. You may have reached a point of crisis in your life - discussing what is going on for you and focusing on ways to move forward will help. Sometimes this can involve acceptance of past events, recognising patterns of behavior and challenging yourself to make positive changes. We will work together to identify what is truly going on for you and find a way forward for you to be able to live the life that you deserve.
What to expect in your first session
Our first session together will provide you with the opportunity to decide if you feel that I can help you. We can discuss what you hope to achieve from counselling and any concerns that you may have in a safe, non judgmental, comfortable space.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. Insured and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I trained as an integrative counsellor incorporating different counselling theories into a therapeutic relational framework. I believe we are all individuals needing individual approaches. The counselling theories incorporated in my training are psychodynamic, humanistic, existential, transpersonal and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Integrative counselling provides a flexible, effective and helpful way of counselling with the healing coming from our therapeutic relationship.
I have 10 years’ experience supporting people experiencing various difficulties including drug and alcohol addiction, homelessness, mental health problems, domestic abuse, long-term illness, disabilities and workplace issues.
I also have experience working with young people 14+ in a NHS setting, college and a local charity.
If you feel I may be able to help you, please feel free to contact me and arrange an initial appointment.
