Michael Hope Counselling MNCS (Accred), BACP
It's really good that you have taken the courage to look at my profile. I am a qualified CPCAB Counsellor & Psychotherapist and member of BACP and NCS (Accred) and follow their ethical rules. I have been very privileged and humbled in recent years working with individuals like yourself, in appreciating the issues and problems that you have to contend with, especially during these current trying times. I will embark on a journey with you in a supportive, safe and confidential manner. There will be times when we will share tears, laughter, silence, challenging situations and so on. Whatever happens during our developing therapeutic relationship, I will be there for you.
I work with individuals from all walks of life, across all ages and diversities, which has given me the unenviable position to appreciate what people are going through, such as suffering from the lost of a loved one, struggling with an ongoing illness to fighting and coping with an addiction. I'm not here to advise you but more importantly to understand what you are going through and assist you in a sensitive and empathic way, to come to terms with your issues and problems.
My specialism is working with you to understand what you are going through, which could stem from all sorts of things including situations during your childhood, if that's the case we will go back there and explore together. Why not come on this journey with me, by starting it with a call and free session to see if we can work together and then take it from there. I look forward to hearing from you.
