ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS
Hello, my name is George and I have been providing my counselling services for over 5 years, offering face to face, telephone, Skype and home visit counselling. Alongside being a counsellor, I also work within the mental health sector providing mental health & well-being support to the North Somerset Community.
My counselling office is in Worle, which is in easy travelling distance from Weston-Super-Mare, Clevedon, Portishead and many other areas of North Somerset.
Although I have experience with a wide range of issues that lead people to counselling, I have a particular interest in the following:
- Anger Management
- Low confidence and self-worth
- Relationship Problems
- Stress (work, home, education, breakdowns etc...)
My counselling Approach
I offer a humanistic counselling approach, where you are given the time and space to talk about whatever is currently on your mind for us to explore together; this will encourage deeper self-awareness and clarity on current issues, which I believe will enable you to realise the steps needed to change your current circumstances and become aware of how to move forward.
I also integrate other therapeutic approaches into my work when a different approach may feel better suited to your needs. Every client I've worked with has brought something unique to them, which is why I approach counselling in this way.
I work from a purpose-built counselling cabin at my home address in Worle (pictures provided below). Clients have said to me that having their counselling in this environment has felt really relaxing, it has taken them out of the normal office environment and into a calming space where they feel comfortable to engage in therapy.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and an accredited member of The National Counselling Society (MNCS). I follow their ethical code of practice to ensure my credibility as a professional.
I am insured to counsel at people's homes should you have physical or mental health issues which would prevent you from getting support otherwise. There are boundaries and limitations to a home visit, which will be discussed in our initial consultation. I am also trained to work on the telephone and Skype if you think this would be more beneficial to you.
How to get started
I offer an initial 1-hour consultation to discuss your reasons for seeking counselling, to ask any question you may have, and to help you make an informed decision before starting therapy. The consultation is charged at £20 for the hour. However, if during the appointment either you and/or I feel that counselling is not right for you at the moment then the consultation is FREE. The consultation can be done either over the phone at an agreed time, or in my counselling office in Worle, Weston-Super-Mare.
