Fergus Ross MBACP Integrative Therapist
I work with you; your experiences, concerns, anxieties, challenges, hopes, and potential. My approach helps you to raise, recognise, and resolve difficulties you might be experiencing. Good relationships help us to manage and maintain good mental health through changes and challenges. When those are not working for you, my work aims to help you find a way that you can understand and use to navigate your life.
To begin working together we need to arrange to meet and discuss your expectations from counselling and how we might best meet them. This initial consultation is free, and from this we can arrange to meet on a regular basis as your needs dictate. Two things are really important at this stage, that you want to explore changes for you, and that you and I can work together. You really do need to work with the right person for you, I won't be offended if that isn't me, naturally I hope to help you!
Prior to qualifying as a counsellor I have worked in executive and leadership positions helping me to understand the struggles and stress associated with an ever demanding and insecure workplace. My work is integrative, this means working with a combination of cognitive, humanistic, psychodynamic, and existential techniques. Those techniques combine to help my clients investigate, learn, and change their situation through working with a defined model. It is all about gaining understanding and relating to enable positive changes.
It takes courage to start working with a counsellor. You might just be curious about how and who you are, or suffering as a consequence of difficult relationships at work or home. Whatever your discomfort I aim to help you find a way to restore some understanding and confidence to deal with the events, changes, and challenges, that your life presents.
