About me

Dr Michael Sims is a Psychotherapist, and a Lecturer/Coordinator at Southampton City College on the BA (Hons) in Person-Centred Counselling & Psychotherapy, and Senior Lecturer/Award Leader on the MA in Counselling & Psychotherapy at Bath Spa University. Mike has had many years experience working with people from all walks of life. Mike trained in an approach developed back in the 1950's by the Humanistic Psychologist Carl Rogers, known as Person-Centred Therapy.

Mike offers a relational therapy based in a genuine, understanding and accepting climate, striving and respecting clients in their entirety. He believes it is through this relationship that clients can find the resources and answers to their issues and troubles. This in turn can potentially build confidence and a sense of empowerment within the client leading to greater feelings of self-worth.

Mike is an Accredited registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy MBACP (Accred), adhering to their ethical framework to ensure professional conduct and equality, which Mike believes assists in creating confidence and assurance in the relationship.

For self-healing to occur in clients, the relationship between the therapist and the client is the key - and it is this key - that can help unlock the client's potential for positive growth.
