Chris Bulpitt, MA, Accredited, Registered Counsellor
Welcome to my information page. I hope you find it useful as you seek to make this significant decision of finding help and counselling.
We all have times in our lives when we feel overwhelmed and stuck. Counselling offers an opportunity to have a safe place in which to talk through and explore these thoughts and feelings, and challenges, in a confidential and safe setting.
In light of this, and my person centred orientation and approach as a counsellor, I would trust and value you, as a client, in my accompanying and counselling you in your own unique journey towards finding your way forward into a more peaceful and settled place. I would offer you, and all you bring to the sessions, acceptance, understanding and authenticity, in a respectful and non judgemental environment.
Having worked with people for just over forty years, I draw on this experience and learning to help me specifically tailor what I offer to each person.
I work with many types of issues and challenges, including depression, loss, abuse, relationship difficulties and general anxiety and uncertainty.
I also have an interest in spirituality, and am willing and able to work with spiritual issues and aspects of life, but only if you decided you wanted to explore these areas.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been working as a counsellor for over twenty years, and have also taught counselling diplomas at post graduate level. I also supervise counsellors.
