Andy McCallum Dip Couns, Dip Sup, MBACP
I am a qualified and experienced integrative counsellor and supervisor. I provide a warm, confidential, and safe space where empathy and non-judgement help you to explore what you're thinking and how you're feeling. Sometimes those two ideas don't match up. If you're happy, I may use metaphor and share with you the latest ideas in counselling, psychology and neuroscience to make your sessions an experience where you feel heard and understood.
A counselling session is a time where you can be 'you' with an opportunity to either change something, or find happiness by staying the same. It's all about how you feel.
I am mainly person-centred, but can also draw on Clinical Hypnotherapy, Transactional Analysis (TA), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Gestalt, Draw & Talk, and Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) when you begin to understand what changes you want or need to make. I have significant experience with Bipolar 1 and 2, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), parenting, stress, anxiety and depression. I can bring a mindfulness and meditation 'feel' into the room, and have 6 years experience working with children and families in schools.
When was the last time you felt a real calm, and peace, and quiet? Safe and relaxed and able to say what you want, how you want, and have a counsellor who accepts that 100%? Maybe even celebrates it with you?
I also use 'walk and talk' therapy on the river path at Trellisick, near Truro, where the energy of being around trees and water contributes to emotional well-being. You can bring your dog and still enjoy a confidential space to feel and think as you enjoy the fresh air. Walking makes talking very easy!
I have rooms in Truro, Chacewater, Redruth, and St Austell.
I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and the British Psychological Society's Code of Ethics and Conduct.
