Hi, I'm Shaun. I am a professional counsellor working in Burnley and I offer a non-judgemental, safe, confidential environment in which we can securely explore whatever is troubling you.
I understand that deciding to see a counsellor can be daunting, and during our work together my focus will be to help you feel at ease, to move forward and feel better. I don't sit behind a desk, and I won't tell you what to do, but I will do my best to understand how you feel so we can find a way forward.
I am based in a modern and comfortable office in Burnley with all the facilities you would expect from a professional counselling service. As well as seeing clients privately, I also take on work from a number of health insurers who require a high level of training and experience from their counsellors so you can be assured of a professional and attentive approach at all times.
If you would like any more information, or to make an appointment, please visit my website or give me a call or text, I'll be delighted to hear from you. The initial appointment is at a reduced rate so you can see if I'm the counsellor for you, and there are no obligations on your part - your therapy is yours, always.
Thanks for reading - I hope to hear from you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold an honours degree in Sociology, and I am a professionally qualified counsellor to Diploma Level 4. I am also a registered member of the BACP which is a regulatory professional body for counsellors and psychotherapists to ensure my work meets with extremely high standards of practice, and I undertake regular professional development and further training to ensure I keep up to date with best and current practice.
In terms of experience, I have been in private practice in Burnley and Manchester City Centre, and have worked voluntarily in a drop-in centre in East Lancashire. These diverse environments have allowed me to build a wealth of experience of working with people from a huge range of backgrounds, with a great variety of reasons for accessing counselling.
