Counselling in Beverley
Hi there, I'm Mike. I hope these pages help you understand how I approach my work, both as an experienced counsellor, and fellow human being. I aim to help you feel comfortable to talk and find solutions to immediate, or longer standing problems and issues.
I put you first, you are central to how we begin to approach our work together, collaboratively as a team.
I recognise that all clients are different and that you all want different things from your therapy, at a pace and depth that suits you.
I use my years of experience as a qualified counsellor, to involve you in a meaningful, potentially trans-formative therapeutic process, where you can explore the issues that you are bringing and decide on a way forward.
I have been working as a counsellor and providing psychotherapy in York and surrounding area for the past 10 years, and I now work as a resident counsellor in Beverley. I am committed to providing counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
I can also offer Psychotherapy in Beverley, York, and Hull, for clients who wish to work at more depth, in what is often a longer process.
I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. My counselling training was through York St John University, where the foundation for my counselling qualification is what is known as Humanistic/Integrative. This in plain English means that my training was very broadly skills based, giving me the experience of being able to fit different theoretical approaches of working, with the issues that you as a client might bring.
I currently work in Hull, as a counsellor/psychotherapist for a qualified provider [AQI] counselling service, for the NHS, under the Improving access to psychological therapies [IAPT] initiative.
As well as working as a counsellor and psychotherapist in private practice, mainly from my home in Beverley, East Yorkshire.
I am also a trustee for a counselling charity in York, where I have had a long established connection as a counsellor and psychotherapist.
I am experienced in helping clients who have had difficulties with :
