Christopher Langer, MSc, MBACP
Based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, I offer a professional counselling service to both individuals and couples. You may be in the middle of a personal crisis, or there may be a feeling that something could be better in an important area of your life.
Wherever you are right now, I’ll help you explore the personal issues you are facing, helping you gain a much better understanding of what is causing you distress.
Training, qualifications & experience
I'm a fully qualified counsellor, with an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling from CPPD, and a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling from Hertfordshire University. I also hold a master's in Occupational Psychology, and first degrees in Psychology and Business. I'm a mindfulness trainer too and a registered member of the BACP.
I have been passionate about psychology and human relationships ever since my undergraduate days. Before turning to counselling, I worked as a senior manager within large organisations. Counselling is very much feel like a 'true calling' for me.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Please note that my approach is essentially integrative, so I often combine different approaches in the interests of making the counselling as effective as possible. I view the working relationship between the counsellor and client as the fundamental vehicle for change.
For me, counselling is not about labels or narrow definitions of psychological problems. I work with people with a variety of issues, and the work often touches on several different areas.

Change is the only constant in life. To change, we first have to accept how things are at the moment. But accepting things for what they are can be incredibly difficult. This is why mindfulness is a key part of my therapeutic work with clients.
As adults, we've probably all felt that life has become 'stuck' at key moments in our life. Counselling can both provide the necessary stimulus to growth and further development.
