Simon Fox (Specialising in Walk and Talk Outdoor Sessions)
Hi, I'm Simon, I would describe myself as a, calm, congruent, honest, empathic individual who is passionate about helping people through difficult times in their lives.
How often in your life do you truly feel listened to and heard? And how often can you truly be honest with those around you, without thinking you might upset them or make them worry? Coming to counselling is about you, giving you a place to be you.
I thoroughly believe it takes a lot of courage and strength to ask for help and access a service like counselling, and have the upmost respect for anyone walking through my therapy room door. I predominantly practice the person-centred approach to counselling as I believe everyone deserves to be truly heard in an unconditional manner. We can live our lives thinking and feeling concerned about what other people think of us and what judgements are made, but I strive to help people identify their own strengths and make autonomous decisions based on them and their own personal needs.
I have worked with both children and adults as both a therapist and life coach in many areas such as bereavement, anxiety, depression, trauma, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, victims of crime/violence, unemployment, identity, divorce etc giving me over 7 years experience of working with people on a 1 to 1 basis. Pryor to that I worked within the homeless sector for three years and family support services for 5 years.
My therapy room is based at a rural setting near to Brigg, Caistor, Barton, Scunthorpe, Grimsby
I am now specialising in Walk and Talk outdoor therapy sessions, as I believe the outdoors is an incredible therapeutic space to enable people to explore their thoughts and feelings, bringing physical and mental health together. Being within the restrictions of a therapy room isn’t for everyone, so why not try a walk & talk. I work from various outdoor locations within North and North east Lincolnshire.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
