I'm Ian, I've been counselling for the past 24 years in various organisations in South Africa and in the UK. I am integrative counsellor and mindful practitioner. This means that although I am largely a person centred counsellor I combine CBT into my practice when it's required. As a mindful practitioner I'm also interested in how your mind and body work together. I work with people of all ages, suffering from a wide range of difficulties. It may be that you want to talk about something from the past that is still affecting you now, something currently happening to you or even something that may occur in the future. I can offer you an opportunity to talk about your situation in a confidential, warm and safe environment. I offer both short term counselling -usually 6 to 8 sessions, or longer term counselling depending on your individual requirements.
Living in South africa exposed me to many people whose lives were affected by violent crime , rape and abuse. As a result I trained as a trauma counsellor and have experience working with and supporting victims of such experiences.
The easiest way to contact me is to send me an email or text with your contact details and I'll get back to as soon as I can.
I look forward to meeting you.
