About me

Hi, I'm Kev. I'm a qualified counsellor and live and work in the Blackpool Fylde & Wyre / Preston area.

A little about me? Well, I could tell you about qualifications as a counsellor and how long I've studied, but I doubt this will give you any indication as to how well we may be able to work together.

So here is a little of how I see counselling to be. Having been in therapy myself for many years,  I believe in having a place to explore our thoughts, feelings, fears, etc in a safe and non-judgemental environment.

These thoughts and feelings can be too difficult sometimes to explore with others in our everyday lives. Though many of our friends and family have good intentions for us, some of what we think and feel may be too much for others to explore with us, and in turn, we tend to keep those innermost thoughts and feelings bottled-up and buried inside.

I believe in the approach of Person-Centred Therapy (PCT) which focuses on you as the driver of your life for the journey you're on. You know yourself more than anyone else does, so who better to decide what's best for you, than you. We just need the right environment and conditions to discover this sometimes.

PCT is not about telling you what to do, nor advice-giving, but by placing ourselves in an environment of non-judgment, trust, understanding and safety - over a period of time, our awareness of who we really are can begin to reveal itself. Counselling can be a hard journey for many of us but the process can be life-changing.

My personal experience as a therapist has been around bereavement, children, and general work such as stress, anxiety, depression, weight loss, etc. I am personally open to working with many issues though if there is something I feel may be better placed with other services I would recommend this and discuss with you.

Counselling is all about you, find out who you are and enjoy the journey.
