Steven Green DIP COUNS, Registered MBACP
Counselling can be very helpful when we are struggling with anger, bereavement, addiction issues, or things that are generally easy to identify. By exploring the thoughts and feelings connected to these things the client and counsellor can work together to affect the desired changes. Difficult emotions can be safely resolved and integrated leaving the client feeling stronger and wiser for having that experience.
When things aren’t as clear, such as feeling anxiety or depression with no “obvious” cause, what then? What if, on the surface, everything in life looks okay but there’s still a sense of something missing, something not quite right?
That’s when it can be useful to look at things in a wider context. The society we live in, our own true nature, our sense of purpose or lack of it. What about our inner desires and dreams? Are our lives the product of random chance or is there something more? Do our lives have meaning?
By working in a holistic way, taking an eagle-eye view of things, I can help clients find new ways to approach issues they are facing and resolutions of a deeper, more satisfying nature. Even small changes in perspective can lead to seeing things in a more balanced and satisfying way.
My role as a counsellor is to provide you with a safe and supportive space to explore your thoughts and feelings, and to work with you to address the issues that you bring. I will help you to find clarity about yourself and the challenges you are facing. This will enable you to find your way through your concerns as you set the direction and focus of our time together.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have experience within the NHS for McMillan Cancer Support, helping people diagnosed with serious and life-threatening illnesses to come to terms with the challenges they face. I have also worked with friends and relatives of those with illness as they often need support during such difficult times.
I work with addictions and substance misuse, having experience in two different recovery-based settings, and have a CPD certificate in Recovery Coaching. I also work with general anxiety, depression and low self-esteem, stress and family issues, among others.
I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I fully adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework, the code of practice that helps to ensure clients receive the best standard of care possible, and I am committed to continually improving my skills. At present, I work with adults only.
