Hi I'm Michael and I offer a warm, safe, and friendly environment where you can explore that which is keeping you stuck. This could be Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Historical Abuse, or Relationship issues.
I believe that the individual is the expert and therefore you have the power to create changes in your live and I am here to help you achieve that.
I have experience in working with Adults and young people aged between 8 and 18 years. I run a private practice and also work with a local charity where the majority of my client work is with the Blue Lights Emergency Services, and also, Children and young people.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
