Niall Christie MBACP (Accred) UKATA EATA
I am an experienced, BACP accredited and registered counsellor and psychotherapist, and I offer a free initial consultation session in order for you to decide whether I am the right counsellor for you. I offer a warm, non-judgemental and compassionate approach to working with your issues and I draw on my personal integrity, honesty and openness to provide you with a secure and supported space for personal change.
I am deeply committed to my work, and to your emotional health and wellbeing, and I have been developing my skills and experience in counselling and psychotherapy since I commenced my psychotherapy training in 1995.
In addition to my person-centred counselling I have a sound theoretical base to my work in Transactional Analysis, through which I can offer you a comprehensive model of therapy and personal development that addresses your relationship with yourself and with others. This allows me to provide you with a clear framework for achieving personal change that supports self-esteem, effective relationships and greater fulfillment.
