Christian Stevens - MBACP Diploma Counsellor
Hello and welcome. My name is Christian and I offer a professional counselling service at a comfortable, private and safe space.
Finding the right person to talk can be overwhelming and feel like an impossible task. I hope that I can make that task as simple as possible.
I am a Humanistic Intergrative Counsellor who works in a personal centred way.
I believe that everyone has the capacity to change, heal and grow.
Life can be difficult. It can present events and experiences that can stay with you forever. It can take a lot of faith and courage to be able to walk through these events. I understand that this can be a difficult task.
I offer that safe space where you can heal and grow from such events. A place where we can try and find that calm and quiet place within. I believe we all have the potential to find that place.
I have a wide area of knowledge and understanding. With that comes a continued growth of experience.
I have worked in various fields: drug and alcohol addiction services, trauma and abuse and I have also worked with a lot of bereavement and grief.

I continue to work with a specialist victim support unit, dealing with different forms of abuse.
My latest role allows me to work directly with vitims and survivors of physical, psychological and emotional abuse.
