Chris Lewis, MSc, UKCP Reg.
Hi, I'm Chris, a person-centred counsellor working from my therapy room in Ashby.
I have a wealth of experience in counselling clients with many different issues. Helping both women and men, I have worked with a wide variety of issues and difficulties including anxiety, panic disorder, body dysmorphia and relationship breakdown.
I have specialised experience in dealing with clients working through loss and bereavement and clients with mental health difficulties. In particular work with men who have anger management issues and use various methods (talking/drawing).
1 in 4 of us will suffer some form of mental health difficulty during our lifetime. As well as the psychiatric help you may be receiving counselling and psychotherapy can help you to explore and deal with the issues that any mental health difficulty raises.
I provide individual 1:1 counselling to any adult (over the age of 18), and I offer sessions up until 9pm in the evening. Please feel free to contact me by phone or email for more information or if you wish to discuss further.

I am flexible when it comes to the number of sessions you require and can offer as few or as many as you need but would recommend initially that we start with 6 weekly sessions. I do offer a concessionary rate depending on your circumstances - please contact me for further details.
Payment can be by cash, cheque (supported by a bankers card) or electronically by BACS transfer.
Sessions by Skype are also available but it would be good to meet together first.
