Antonio Giacalone Advanced Dip CPCAB CBT MBACP (registered)
My name is Antonio. I am an experienced counsellor with expertise in anxiety addictions and relationships problems.
My experience expands for over 15 years in supporting people. I have also worked in the NHS in Substance misuse and alcohol dependancy. My expertise is in anxiety and addictive behaviours. I have worked with many different presenting issues and a variety of challenges that we as human are sometimes face with.
My objective is the one of supporting you in becoming more autonomous and self-reliant. I will support you in exploring the concern you will bring to the session. 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 standards.
In my initial consultation we will explore to gather your needs and concerns. You will have an opportunity to ask any question you may have. In this initial consultation we will have an opportunity to get to know each other. At the end of the consultation, we will decide if it is appropriate to work together. If we decide to work together my suggestion is to work together for 6 sessions with a session to review the work undertaken and to explore if necessary to continue. This is all explored in the safety of a confidential space.
My Qualities and Approach
Key words: emphatic – understanding – supportive – and most of all ethical and confidential. In my practice and in the years, I have worked with people I have learned a great deal strategy and can offer you many different tips for to experiment with and see if they help in the changes you want to make.
