Roger Green MBACP
I am a person-centred counsellor who specialises in counselling children, families, young adults.and all those on the autistic spectrum and their families I have worked with children, families and young adults for over 40 years as a social worker, teacher and counsellor. Although I am a person-centred counsellor I also draw on other approaches such as CBT and solution focussed brief therapy for which I have undertaken training. I have consulting rooms in Stratford upon Avon, Leicester and Banbury but can also arrange to come to the clients own home, school or alternative location. Although I have a diploma in education for children with special needs, I do not do written assessments myself but can make referrals to appropriately qualified colleagues. I work with people on the autistic spectrum of all ages as well with their families. I also specialise in work with children from 5 upwards, families students and young adults.

I worked for the London Borough of Camden as a social worker but chose to qualify as a teacher. I then spent four happy years working in the east end of London initially as a primary school class teacher, then as teacher in charge of a withdrawal unit for those children in need of extra emotional support. I moved to teach in a secondary school for children with social and emotional problems in the Cotswolds since I wanted to bring up my own children in the countryside.
Later, I moved to Stratford upon Avon to run a specialist facility for secondary school children who were not coping in mainstream education.
Next I became teacher/advisor for Warwickshire County Council when much of my role was counselling children and/or parents.
I took retirement in 2002 but was asked to work with a group of autistic children. Over the last eleven years I have developed strong links with other professionals in this field.

I charge £45 for a 50 minute session. If there is a need for therapy to last more than 5 sessions I am ready to discuss my charges. If counselling takes place in an alternative location I may need to discuss my fees to take account of travelling time depending on circumstances.
There are reduced fees for those on benefits.
