Hi, I'm Steve and I'm a Person-Centred Counsellor
I think for most of us, life has a tendency to get overwhelming from time to time and we can feel like the support we have around us just isn't enough.
Try not to compare your struggles with others - it is important to acknowledge that your difficulties are relative to you and you alone. But if you're reading this I would hope you are already beginning to realise YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN THE WAY YOU CURRENTLY FEEL.
When our relationship begins we will be strangers. No roles to fulfil, acts to play out or masks to wear. We have a clean slate - and this is one of the most powerful tools at our disposal.
In our sessions together, you will be offered:
Empathy and Understanding
A Non-Judgemental Atmosphere
Warmth, Honesty and Genuineness
Unconditional Positive Regard
Time, Space and Calm for Reflection, Clarity of Thought and Personal Growth
It is my belief that these things combined with your best efforts to engage, are enough to set in motion positive change.
You will decide the content and pace of each session. I will not attempt to direct, advise or diagnose. Will will explore things together without external pressures or agendas for YOU ARE THE ONLY TRUE EXPERT ON YOURSELF.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I am an Individual Member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
I have been in clinical contact since 2017 with a diverse range of clientele at an agency I continue to work with.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

I am extremely passionate about the work I do and have had the privilege of the most up to date training with tutors and peers who share in my passion and the belief that talking truly helps and can be that first important step to a happier, more fulfilling way of life wherein you allow yourself to BECOME THE BEST VERSION OF YOU, FOR YOU.
