About me

My name is Chris. I'm an experienced counsellor providing a comfortable, safe, non-judgemental space in which to support you with whatever brings you to counselling. Be sure to watch my introductory videos - they're at the bottom of this page.

Things I can help with
I specialise in supporting people who have experienced trauma (either in childhood or as an adult), and in treating addiction. My work is in no way limited to these areas - see the 'Areas of counselling I deal with' section for a full list.

Free initial consultation
Before committing to a first session, I offer a free, 30-minute phone consultation. Phone, text, or message me now for this consultation.

First session and session formats
Following the initial consultation, if you decide you want to go ahead with counselling, you can choose the format in which we meet:

· Face-to-face counselling in a safe, confidential, and comfortable space
· Video counselling via Skype, Zoom, or Whatsapp video
· Counselling over the telephone

Session details
All sessions last for 50 minutes. We will usually meet weekly, The support I offer can be short or long-term, depending on what it is you would like help with.

Training, qualifications & experience

My experience
I have many years’ experience working in mental health teams, therapy teams, and substance misuse teams. I’ve worked with a great range of clients within the NHS, in prisons, and in several community settings.

I offer longer-term support, for example carefully unravelling feelings around trauma; as well as shorter-term work, such as coping strategies for anxiety, panic, and stress.

Personalised approach
I’m an integrative counsellor, which means I’ll integrate several different styles of therapy to form an approach that suits you personally. Some of the counselling styles I might integrate are psychodynamic therapy, person-centred therapy, and cognitive behavioural therapy.

· Diploma in Counselling (Integrative)
· Advanced certificate in Counselling Studies
· Certificate in Counselling Skills
· Advanced certificate in Safeguarding Children
· Advanced certificate in Health and Social Care

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
