George Fortune BSc (Hons) MBACP Registered & MNCS Accredited
319 High St
Hello, my name is George and I offer face to face, telephone and Skype counselling in Weston-Super-Mare and 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 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 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 a FREE 30-minute consultation, which can be done either over the phone at an agreed time, or in my counselling room.
Please have a look at my website www.georgefortunecounselling.co.uk for more information about my counselling approach, answers to frequently asked questions and articles that I have written for clients, which include:
- 5 Useful tips on managing depression.
- Controlling anger so it doesn't control you!
- Understanding and improving anxiety.
- How to be happy: Is self-acceptance the key to happiness?
Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.
