Craig Woolaston (Dip.couns, MBACP)
Taking the step to reach out for counselling can be difficult and daunting. I will take the time to find out what you would like from counselling and to see how I can best help with your personal experiences. Each person’s experiences are different, I would like to see you for the person you are. As a Person-Centred counsellor, believing you are the centre of our work together, I offer counselling that promotes real change, for people and their lives. A safe, secure space, where you can explore whatever you feel you need to, confidentially and free from judgement through a reparative, trusting and therapeutic relationship.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Qualified Counsellor and Registered member of the BACP, having gained much of my experience volunteering within an NHS Brain Injury Rehabilitation Hospital where there experience has been much more than the brain injury itself, while also providing counselling to people looking for counselling privately.
