About me

I work online (Zoom - WhatsApp - Telegram - Skype - Telephone)

Face to Face - In the office or walk & talk

Hello and welcome. My name is Christian and I am a professional and experienced counsellor and I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Membership No. 749580.

I am also a qualified and experienced CBT Practitioner and work with all mental health conditions including Anxiety, Depression and Panic Attacks.

I specialise in working with trauma, abuse and addiction issues. through my continuous learning I have also gained experience in working with disassociation and flashbacks.

Most people in their life time have experienced some sort of trauma, hurt or pain which they walk around with this hidden and generally keep this hidden to themselves. They hide this pain away from the rest of the world, but live with it in secret to them selves, walking around with this pain and misery which can keep them in turmoil, it is only when they are on there own that they get a true sense of how much it hurts and impacts there life.

Is it that time to stop suffering and hurting from those past experiences and events in your lifetime?

Life can be difficult enough without those traumas in your life. It can also present events and experiences that can stay with you forever.

I understand that it can take a lot of faith and courage to be able to walk through these events with someone else.  I know that this can be a difficult and even sometimes feel like an impossible task.

I offer a safe space where you can heal, grow and change from such events in your lifetime.  A space where we can try and find that calm and quiet place within. I believe that we all have the potential to find that calm and safe space with in regardless of what pain you are carrying around with you

I have a wide range of knowledge, understanding, and with that comes a continued growth of experience.

I have also experienced such events in my life where I have been through similar processes where I sat with a counsellor to find that quiet place within.

I have also worked in various fields including mental health agencies, drug & alcohol addiction services, trauma and abuse charities, and I have also worked with a lot of bereavement and grief.

I have gained experience working with health & social care charities who work with individuals who have various mental health conditions.

I have also had experience working with LGBTQ.

One of recent roles allowed me to work directly with victims and survivors of physical, psychological and emotional abuse through a Modern day slavery and trafficking charity which gave me first hand experience in this area.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
