Hello, I'm Chris, counsellor at Counselling Central.
We all go through tough times in life and no one is exempt. It is completely normal to struggle at times.
Yet seeking professional help can feel difficult...
Whatever challenges you are facing, I can tell you that working with a supportive professional really can help.
I believe in the power of good counselling because I have seen time and again how it helps people change and grow, overcome difficulties and feel better about themselves. And often within a relatively short time frame.
Counselling is more than just talking about feelings, it is about changing patterns and behaviours that are keeping you stuck, and arming you with skills and strategies to live a more satisfying life.
I have training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Solution Focus, Person Centred Therapy and Mindfulness.
Training and knowledge is super-important and valuable and I have an ongoing commitment to learning.
But did you know research shows that it is your relationship with your therapist that is the key to successful therapy? You have to find someone that you feel comfortable with!
You will find me warm, genuine, empathic and easy to talk to. I am very down to earth, accepting and experienced in life.
