Vincent Mather MBACP, NLP Cert
5 Haydock Street
I have a counselling room in St Helens town centre. It is a private building where you can be assured of confidentiality, comfort and complimentary tea and coffee.
Hi Vinny please find feedback below – Hope its ok ….. still enjoying life thanks to you!!!
One thing I never thought I would need in my life was counselling – one of the hardest things I have had to do was contact a counsellor for help! But once I did I knew I had done the right thing and it has changed my life. I contacted The change Agency in St Helens and from the first point of call found them to be warm, friendly and supportive to my problems, I was very impressed by their level of services, the location was easy to find with great parking and from the first time of entering the premises, I found it professional and a safe environment to unload my problems –which I didn’t know I had until talking to my counsellor. Client care and confidentiality is the upmost importance with The Change Agency and working with Vinny who was very understanding and an excellent listener, offered the support I needed, it’s hard to express my gratitude in words but if it wasn’t for Vinny I would not be the person I am today and would be still in a very dark place. This company offers professional support and they are a credit to their profession –I can’t thank them enough for helping me and I would recommend their services to everyone! D from St Helens
I would recommend counselling to everyone and I often do. In particular I found working with Vinny easy and I was made to feel relaxed and comfortable. I have had counselling before but found I couldn't relate to them. Vinny you have helped me change my whole life and this has had a huge impact on my loved ones too. I cannot thank you enough for your support and understanding through a terrible time in my life. You are an amazing person.... Thank you so so much!! E from Widnes
Why work with me? I have been around for 45 years and in this time I have had my own share of disasters, struggles, issues and problems. I have suffered depression and lacked confidence. It was only when I made the brave decision to have some counselling that my life began to change. It wasn't easy, in fact at times it was very difficult but eventually I was able look back on things, make positive changes and also accept the things that I couldn't change. It felt so good that I became a counsellor myself and now I get to see those same changes in my clients as we work together and that makes me feel great!
I now run a private practice in St Helens and surrounding areas, offering not just a Counselling service but Life Coaching and Mentoring too. I am part of a group of therapists who work alongside each other and specialise in different therapies. So if I cannot offer you help for any reason, I can quickly put you in touch with someone who can.
I trained for four years to become a fully qualified Counsellor and I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. This means that my qualifications and status are professionally recognised and I work strictly within their professional framework and code of ethics. I also trained as an NLP practitioner which enables me to offer unique techniques that can often instantly impact on the way a client is feeling in a very positive way.
How might therapy help you?
Therapy can help with a wide range of issues and life events such as depression and feeling down, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, relationship difficulties, confidence issues or a loss or bereavement of some kind.
It might be that something which happened in your past has left you feeling stuck and unable to move forward with your life.
It could also be the case that you don't know exactly what's troubling you, but you do know that things just aren't right.
