Psychoanalytical Psychoanalysis and Integrative Counselling: "The speed and accuracy by which Chris was able to work out our personalities and provide genuinely useful insight was, quite frankly, incredible.  This insight, hard as it was to digest, proved to be so profound to me that I was finally able to unpick what had being going on in my relationship.  His ability to sum up the relationship in one stark metaphor was a watershed moment for me.  Through his insight and continued support I have managed to start to discover myself again and to regain my confidence which had been systematically dismantled."  Mr. M, 2019, Canterbury.

Being a young adult in 2022 is not easy. From panic attacks, to a bad habit of browsing Instagram and Tinder at 4am - I specialise in helping young adults (age 18 to 30) build a healthier day-to-day life by talking about their lives, problems and thoughts. Do any of these statements describe you: "My coursework is just too much, I feel miserable, money problems, I lost someone I loved, I worry my girlfriend is cheating, I'm putting on weight, I suffer bad anxiety in normal situations, I'm having panic attacks, I need to understand myself right and get better now."

Therapy can be a catalyst for change helping us to regain a sense of control in our lives and begin to live life more towards our true potential. I have experience of working with a wide range of issues that impact on clients' wellbeing, offering support, empathy and a safe space to share their concerns. I work with individuals, couples, families, children, young people on short and long-term contracts in Canterbury and Waltham. I use different approaches and techniques that are tailored to clients' needs, believing that we are all individual and that ‘one size does not fit all’. I have also lived and worked extensively overseas.

Contacting a counsellor can feel scary and daunting, empowering or everything inbetween. I offer a safe space to support you explore feelings either responding to a sudden event and longer term feelings. Counselling sees you as a whole person rather than a collection of symptoms or parts, we are more than that. The most important aspect is developing trust by providing a space to share without fear or judgement. Mainly my clients have a trauma, domestic abuse, cptsd or neurodivergent background. For my teenage clients exploring identity around gender and sexuality is important. I also supervise counsellors in their work.

I strive to be an approachable, warm and accepting counsellor who can offer you a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space to talk about whatever it is that is troubling you. I work integratively, but I do so from a philosophically person-centered standpoint, in a relaxed yet respectful environment. I can help restore past issues and facilitate positive change, often in as few as six sessions, using a Solution Focused/CBT approach that focuses on overcoming life obstacles and moving away from feeling 'stuck'. I can help you with building confidence, resilience and focusing on new achievements and becoming goal oriented.

For 20 years I have trained in and practiced several effective self development and psychotherapeutic approaches, all of which support healing and change. I have worked within the NHS with adults with high levels of mental and emotional difficulties as well as more recently with families, children and adolescents with low to moderate difficulties in anxiety, low mood and behaviour difficulties. My work ranges from a long term psychodynamic approach to short term trauma based EMDR. Both will increase your awareness of how past experience can create unhelpful patterns in our present. Both can transform in a gentle and safe way.

Great, you have already taken the first steps for you. I am not the expert on you, you are. I am here to support and explore with you what you maybe finding difficult or just not feeling Ok. This may be in your relationships, in your physical body or you are finding both these things are overwhelming sometimes. Together we can wonder, ponder and educate ourselves and understand, why? Then we can make a strategy and build on your already available resilience (you are here remember), and improve this together. This maybe just a few sessions, sometimes just one or a little longer if you need this.

Life doesn't get any easier does it? Juggling work, relationships and family can be stressful and confusing, leaving us feeling emotionally drained. Sometimes the harder we work to please others, the tougher we are on ourselves. This can make us feel less than good enough. Deeper feelings of anxiety, sadness and anger can be painful and scary, so we become very good at burying them until they build up and overwhelm us. If you are experiencing feelings that are hard to manage I can help you.

It takes tremendous strength and courage to reach out and finally say - something's not working. It can be easy to put aside our doubts, worries, traumas and behaviours, and let our busy lives take the lead. Yet as you know, these feelings don't just disappear, and one day something builds up within us that makes us say - 'ENOUGH, I need to deal with this.' Naturally, our first step is to reach out to friends, family, or colleagues, and although we respect their opinions, do we truly allow ourselves to be vulnerable within these relationships?

Play Therapy , especially non-directive play therapy is helpful for children, because it allows them to express themselves freely and without pressure to talk.
I am an integrative and trauma informed counsellor based in Chichester West Sussex. I work therapeutically with children, young people and adults in a gentle, empathic and warm way. Fundamental to my approach is the belief that we all have the potential to change, develop and lead more satisfying lives. You may be having relationship difficulties, issues with anxiety, experienced trauma of some kind, or looking to change an aspect of your life that is not fulfilling. In providing a relationship which feels safe you can, at your own pace, find your own answers and feel heard and supported towards a happier way of living and being

Play Therapy Counsellors
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counselling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behaviour and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in Canterbury or for a Canterbury play therapy counsellor, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists in Canterbury, and play counsellors.
