About me

Covid-19. I am still accepting new clients and I have immediate appointments available. I offer telephone therapy or video therapy via Zoom.

Hello, I'm Christopher, a qualified and experienced Psychotherapist and Counsellor working with, Adults, Children & Young People and Couples in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire and Lincoln. As a Humanistic Psychotherapist and Counsellor, I believe everyone has the capacity to achieve their fullest potential and no problem is too big or too small to ask for help.

Having trained as an integrative and relational psychotherapist, I am able to make use of a range of models and approaches to therapy. Furthermore, I place a great deal of emphasis on the need for a therapeutic relationship between you (the client) and me. After all, if the relationship is open and honest and the client is treated with respect, acceptance and understanding, change can occur.

I became a psychotherapist after a long career in health and social care settings. Where I strived to make the right support available, to those who needed it, at the right time. As a psychotherapist I still believe that being able to get the help you want when you need it most is important. Moreover, I believe therapy should be accessible to everyone, regardless of age, ability or what your concerns are.

Therefore, I work with clients of all ages, from 4 years old, I will also work with people living with disabilities, long-term mental health conditions, Autism Spectrum Conditions and addiction. And I am able to offer discounted rates in certain circumstances, which I will be happy to discuss with you during our initial phone consultation.

My work as a therapist is influenced by Existential philosophy, which explores what it is like to be Human and to come to terms with life in all its confusing intricacy. I understand that life can be tough, and many of us need a little help to make sense of the world and our place in it.

Moreover, the existential tradition avoids labelling difficulties as "illness" and focuses on understanding them as consequences of the challenges of living. After all, we are all unique and only you know what it is like to be you.

Therefore, I will work with you in a way that suits your needs, we will focus on the things that are important to you. Together, we will explore your concerns and how, through deeper understanding, you can make choices about the way you live your life.

People access counselling for many reasons, some examples of issues or concerns people come to counselling for are;


• Grief and loss
• Communication and relationships issues
• Work and career issues
• Stress, anxiety and depression
• Life transitions such as the birth of a new baby, separation and divorce
• Parenting
• Addiction
• Abuse
• Trauma
• Self-esteem difficulties
• Exploring their gender identity and/or sexuality
• Bullying
• Exam stress
• Transitions through school, college and university
• Anger problems

Along with my private practice I work in a number of counselling services, providing therapy in schools, colleges and to adults in community settings.

I also facilitate Well-being and Psycho-Education groups in a range of settings. The groups can be designed to meet the specific needs of those attending. For example, I have recently been facilitating an Emotional Resilience group with young people in a secondary school.

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.

Wheelchair user access

My room is on the first floor and accessed via two small flights of stairs. Please let me know if this is a problem as we can discuss using an alternative room.
