Elmwood Counselling - Mark Siggery MA, MBACP
I am a dad of 4 and I feel this motivates me to tailor my service to feel accessible to all.
I have an MA in Counselling from Thames Valley University and am experienced and committed to providing the best service. I am a member of the BACP.
I have been working to support families and journeying through their highs and lows for the past 15 years.
Counselling for me, is not about fixing lives but essentially learning to live with life's difficulties and feelings in a more positive way. Sometimes sharing your feelings can help things become clearer whilst some clients might want to better understand how life's experiences have shaped their lives and feel like they are able to take back some control.
My philosophy is more about joining you on this moment in your life and working with you on a journey to achieve your goals. I believe in hope and the human capacity to rise up, to achieve through adversity.
The work is always at your pace. There is no mystery. No analysis just a gentle, reflective approach. Where you can feel safe and listened to in confidence.
I specialise in working with families, young people, addictions, anxiety and stress. I have also trained in ACEs and motivational interviewing.
My Counselling Practice aims to be gentle, calming, honest and to feel safe to explore sometimes difficult feelings. My practice is set within my family home and I can offer flexible appointments at weekends and evenings. For more information, questions or to book an appointment please feel free to email, text or phone.
