Feeling troubled with life? I believe I can help you. My name is Adrian, I am a fully qualified, widely and very experienced counsellor and counselling supervisor. I work with individuals and couples. I offer a safe place for you to explore whatever is causing you concern in a supportive and caring environment with confidentiality assured. I am a Person-Centred therapist and use this base as the core of my therapy and can help with a wide range of issues including:
• Work issues
• Trust issues
• All forms of abuse
• Couples counselling
• Low self esteem
• Bereavement and grief
• Usually individuals choose to have therapy because they are experiencing difficulties and distress in their lives. Sometimes people can be isolated but at other times, even where an individual has the most supportive family and friends, they can find it difficult if not impossible to explain why, for example, they may be feeling anxious and or depressed. Or it may be easier to talk about personal, family, or relationship issues with a person who is independent of friends and family. Other life issues and events, which can be very difficult to deal with, include bereavement, divorce, redundancy, health issues, bullying and so on. However, you do not have to be in crisis or on the verge of one, before choosing to have therapy. You may be experiencing underlying feelings of dissatisfaction with life in general, or be seeking balance in your life and spirituality. All of these reasons and more will bring individuals to therapy.
What is counselling/therapy
• Therapy is time set aside by you and the therapist to look at what has brought you to therapy. This might include talking about life events, (past and present), feelings, emotions, relationships, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour. The therapist will do their best to help you to look at your issues, and to identify the right course of action for you, either to help you resolve your difficulties or help you find ways of coping. Talking about these things may take time, and will not necessarily all be included in one session.
It is my belief that given the right conditions every individual has the capacity to change. I genuinely strive to offer these conditions to all of my clients and as a result my clients genuinely feel the benefit. Taking time and space to explore your thoughts and feelings will empower, build confidence, and create a far greater ability to make decisions and changes. My work with you is based on trust and genuineness with a real desire to understand in an effort to develop a deep trusting therapeutic relationship with you. I will not judge you, but instead will travel with you and help you to free yourself of whatever holds you back.
I am dedicated to my work and will be dedicated to helping you. I work both in my practice and freelance for large organisations including the NHS, ITV, BUPA. I also work part time as a School counsellor and teach counselling one evening a week at South Cheshire College. I am committed to all my clients. As a result I have built an excellent reputation. Appointments can be made daytime or evening.
