Carl Willis reg.BACP B.A (hons) MSc
Many thanks for taking the time to visit my page. A bit about myself - I am fully qualified and experienced BACP registered counsellor and supervisor. I have been counselling clients for 11 years.
I have worked in different professions and held roles in a number of areas - ranging from adult education to the NHS. I have counselled clients as part of an NHS scheme for over eight years. I am also a Clinical Supervisor to students, qualified therapists and counsellors.
I am an integrative therapist - which basically means I use a variety of techniques to help my clients deal with issues they may be experiencing. Integrative therapy interests me so much that I have set up a course for a university to help others pursue this form of counselling. One of my current roles is Course Director for a Counselling, Coaching and Mentoring degree.
Integrative therapy covers transactional analysis, gestalt, cognitive behavioural and person centred approaches. It's about creating the most effective therapy approach for you.
So do feel free to contact me and I can provide you with more information over the phone to give you more of an idea - without any pressure to proceed.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am qualified to Masters degree level in counselling which I obtained at Keele University.
I also have 3 diplomas in counselling and a certificate in Counselling Supervision. In addition to this I have undertaken various additional training courses in order to expand and develop my knowledge base and undertake regular and frequent CPD. My previous roles include Senior Lecturer for Counselling and Course Leader for Counselling for a university degree.
My experience to date has enabled me to work with a vast range of issues. I also have a particular expertise in working with relationship issues, sexuality, self-esteem, depression and anxiety issues, as well as survivors of sexual abuse.
