Charles Miller - Counsellor
Down to earth, experienced, practical I have been a BACP Accredited Counsellor for 15yrs. The people I see come for a wide range of reasons: anger, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, difficult life events, as well as abuse, poor self esteem and bereavement.
I trained as a counsellor because I have always had a strong interest in why we behave as we do, and, in particular, how we deal with, if indeed we do, the seemingly insurmountable problems that life can throw at us.
My background is a 25 year career as a Soldier and a Diplomat followed by 10 years as a Business Consultant. It was during experience gained as a Business Consultant that I realised we often have a false picture of who we think we are, and, what we think we can achieve.
I believe we are capable of a great deal more than we allow ourselves. It was this realisation that led me to train as a counsellor.
I work in the public sector for a wide range of Businesses and Corporations as well as seeing private clients in my rooms in Swindon and Devizes.
I see Individuals.
