Nathan Meredith Registered Member MBACP
Hello and welcome. I hope the information below helps you with exploring the site and finding the right counsellor for you.
As a counsellor I have 10 years of experience working in a number of statutory and charitable settings, with a wide range of clients and age groups. During this time I have worked with a variety of circumstances that may have brought clients to therapy, including bereavement, terminal illness, family break up/transitional changes, adoption/fostering, gender and sexual identity, self injury/harm, suicidal ideation, and abuse. My work has therefore helped people through trauma, overcome difficulties during/from childhood, manage stress brought on by sudden life changes, and in finding a more balanced mood.
I offer a high level of expertise that can quickly help clients feel at ease, able to share their thoughts and feelings, and achieve their personal goals. To suit your particular needs I can work in a more directive manner that would structure our sessions, or in a way that allows you to lead the pace and direction of work. In addition to traditional listening and talking counselling skills, I am well experienced in using a range of written tools or creative/play-based methods in sessions, as might be appropriate for different needs.
Visitors to this page may wish for counselling to be a short process, others might want a medium to longer term arrangement. I therefore offer a free initial short consultation where we can get a better understanding of how you are 'starting' counselling, and where you would like to be when you 'finish' counselling. This can help us get an idea of how we will notice changes during the course of our work, and how we will measure success. Of course its also a good opportunity for you to consider whether my approach and manner is suitable for you.
Parental consent to attend counselling will be needed for people under 18.
