Antonio Giacalone Advanced Dip CPCAB CBT MBACP (registered)
Hi and welcome to my Counselling profile. My name is Antonio.I have worked in community services for 15 years and also in the NHS in Substance misuse. I have worked with many different presenting issues and a variety of challenges that we as human are sometimes face with. My aim is the one of helping you in becoming a more self-reliant individual. I will support you in exploring the concerns you will bring to the session, and will help you in exploring feelings associated with your challenge. This will be done in a safe and confidential space. I work under the BACP code of Ethics and you will receive nothing but the best of standard.
Areas of expertise:
Alcohol and other Substances Abuse
- I provide a full comprehensive asseessment
- I provide a holistic individual drug and alcohol treatmnet using Cognitive Behavioural theraphy
In my initial meeting we will explore needs and concerns. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. In this initial consultation we will have the chance to get each other and, by the end, we will decide if it is appropriate to work together. If we do decide to work together my suggestion is to work for 6 sessions with a session to review and to explore if it is necessary to continue. This is of course all explored in the safety of a confidential space.
Key words used in my counselling practice– Emphatic- Understanding- Supportive- Challenging, and most of all ethical and confidential. In the years I have worked with people I have learned great strategies and can offer you many different tips. You will then have the choice and opportunity to use them. I take my work seriously however in the time we work together there will be opportunity to also smile.
