About me

Hey there, I'm Tom Walker, and I'm not just a counsellor; I'm your companion on the journey to better mental well-being. 🌈 As a friendly and adaptable counsellor, I understand the importance of creating a safe and supportive space for you.

The sessions will be adapted to you, allowing you to take as much or little time as you need during sessions. 🌟 Our sessions are relaxed and informal, with us working around the presenting issues delicately and collaboratively. My hope for counselling is for you to experience meaningful change in areas of your life that are causing you distress and suffering. I work using a range of approaches. with your well-being at the heart of each session. 

🐾 Outside the counselling room, I share my life with a lively 6-month-old cocker spaniel, adding an extra touch of warmth and comfort to our sessions. 🐶 My love for walking and cycling in the great outdoors reflects my belief in the therapeutic power of nature. Together, we can explore how nature and movement can contribute to your mental well-being.

🚴‍♂️ When I'm not counselling or enjoying nature, you'll often find me engrossed in the world of sports. Whether it's cheering for my favourite team & indulging in the excitement of a match, sports bring me joy and energy.

🌟 What sets me apart is not just my professional expertise, but my personal journey through anxiety. I've navigated the challenges of anxiety myself and experienced firsthand the transformative impact therapy can have on an individual's life. This lived experience enables me to approach our sessions with empathy, understanding, and a genuine commitment to supporting you on your path to healing.

Let's embark on this journey together, where compassion meets expertise, and every step forward is a step toward a brighter tomorrow. 🌻✨

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a graduate of Leeds Beckett University, where I earned my Masters in Integrative Counselling, a journey that has shaped the foundation of my counselling approach. 🏫 My commitment to understanding and integrating various therapeutic modalities is reflected in my academic achievements. I believe in a no "one size fits all policy".

🛠️ Over the past 24 months, I've actively engaged with clients, honing my skills through practical experience while completing my training. This hands-on approach has been complemented by continuous professional development, ensuring that my knowledge remains current and relevant in the ever-evolving field of mental health.

👩‍🎓 Beyond my counselling specialisation, I hold a degree in Business Studies, adding a unique perspective to my practice. This blend of business acumen and therapeutic expertise allows me to approach counselling with a well-rounded and adaptable mindset.

🌟 My experience spans across all age groups, professions and backgrounds, with a particular focus on providing support and guidance to vulnerable individuals navigating challenging periods in their lives. Whether it's anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, or the profound experience of loss, I've been privileged to assist clients in finding resilience and strength within themselves.

💡 What sets me apart is not just my extensive experience but also my positive attitude towards the therapeutic journey. I believe in the transformative power of counselling and approach each session with a dedication to fostering a safe and empowering space for growth.

Member organisations

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.
