Craig Walker MBACP (Registered)
I provide a professional and confidential service that is not only underpinned by formal education but also my life experiences. For the past 7 years, I have helped many people find clarity, peace of mind and self-fulfilment. I am aware that the journey through counselling much like that of life can be a very difficult one at times. In these times I will be willing to be there right beside you no matter how difficult it becomes. We could sit in silence, or we could sit and chat, of we could sit and you could just let it all out. I won't be afraid to be afraid and hope you wouldn't either. I know I don't have all the answers and I'm sure at the start neither would you. However, I believe that with just the right amount of: compassion, guidance and challenge we as human beings can reach deep within ourselves and find the answers we need.
There are times in our lives when all of us need to find a little clarity about ourselves or our lives. Sometimes we need to make minor adjustments or big changes to feel like we are going in the right direction once again. Making these adjustments or changes by oneself can appear difficult, daunting, and sometimes even impossible. However, with a little, or a lot of help making the changes we want, can eventually become our reality.
