About me

Hello and welcome to the profile for Phillip Skelton.

I am a qualified Person Centred Therapeutic Counsellor and I adhere to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Ethical Framework.

The counselling I provide creates a safe, empathic environment and sensitive space for a person to explore and resolve personal difficulties and limitations they may be experiencing, and to move beyond them. It can also help to enhance your relationship/connection with yourself and others.

The Person Centred approach ensures that you remain empowered and that you choose the direction and pace during the therapeutic process. Your best interest is always held as the highest priority alongside fully respecting your right to confidentiality.

I believe that counselling can offer you the opportunity for positive change and growth, and helps you to deal with life’s challenges more effectively and confidently.

I can relate to the feeling that taking the first steps to talking about difficult feelings and situations, and choosing a counsellor may be daunting. However, as you are reading my profile suggests you have already taken the first steps in seeking the benefits of counselling.

Integral to the working relationships we develop is my commitment, respect and positive open-mindedness towards you.

I am also Director for Inner Resources Ltd, which provides high-level support for vulnerable adults, and young people who have social, behavioural and mental health difficulties. I also support the families of vulnerable people, especially in times of crisis and I am experienced in working with their extended professional network.
