About me

Counselling is more than just talking, it’s more than just exploring your feelings. Counselling is about the relationship. A relationship which is built on a foundation of the right conditions, with the right person.

That’s what is on offer, the right conditions and the right person; which will lead us to build a strong therapeutic foundation on which to build our work together- to build ideas and explore feelings in a safe, constructive way.

Being a male counsellor, the offer is perhaps a different one. A different way to express, share and deal with what comes up.

Area's of specialism include autism, stress, disability, lgbtq+, suicide- ideation and survival.

Training, qualifications & experience

Darren’s entire career has been about helping others and has worked therapeutically for 8 years. Most recently Darren has been a volunteer counsellor for a local charity.
