A. Wills Virgo - Counsellor MBACP
Hi, welcome to my counselling profile, I'm Wills Virgo, a counsellor and psychotherapist, working in Brighton, Hove and Clapham.
Some of us reach a point in our lives when how we are living is no longer OK. There may be a specific event or incident that is affecting us in some way, or we may just have a sense that something is not ‘right’ and we want to understand what is going on, and maybe do something about it.
My aim is to help you to overcome the problems and issues that bring you to counselling, exploring them in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
What is counselling or therapy? Well, it is a way to help with problems that arise in your life. It is often described as talking therapy. Its a dialogue, which is non-judgmental, confidential and a place to talk to an impartial person about your worries. It's a chance to find a path through difficult times in your life.
I am a fully qualified counsellor with a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I am passionate about helping clients explore and work through their difficulties and issues,I have extensive experience of working as counsellor with the following issues such as anger, loss, low self-esteem, and self-confidence, substance abuse, anxiety, bereavement, domestic abuse, eating disorders, sexual violence, self-harm, feeling sad, panic disorders and relationship issues.
I work collaboratively with you to agree on how your sessions are structured, how frequently we meet and to ensure we have an agreed outcome to work towards. In my experience counselling is most effective when people feel safe enough to learn about themselves, to identify beliefs or responses that aren’t helpful anymore and start to explore new ways of thinking.
If you have any questions or want to book an initial session, please drop me a line, I look forward to hearing from you.
