Hello, and welcome to my page. I have been qualified as a counsellor / psychotherapist for over 16 years, with previous experience in mental health and Social Work Management. I work with adults, children, adolescents and have expertise in working with family issues. I can help with a wide range of matters including: anxiety and depression, self esteem, family difficulties, relationship issues, Childhood abuse, Childhood neglect, Life threatening events, eating disorders, self harm, suicide and trauma.

Hi, I am Max ( Qualified Person Centred Therapist) and I know from my own experience, that life can sometimes be a struggle. Events and experiences can leave us feeling lost, isolated or directionless . At such times, reaching out for help can feel very difficult and it is important that your search leads you to someone you feel you can trust . Counselling is an opportunity to explore thoughts and feelings ,which might be affecting many different areas of your life. With careful and empathic listening, I endeavour to support you in finding your own way through what is often too complex and difficult to manage alone.
I have worked with many different presentations throughout my career in the NHS, Charity sector and HM Prison service. My experience and training can give you the confidence in my practice as I provide you with an individual approach; tailored to your specific needs and goals. Together we can explore how to improve your situation by equipping you with the necessary skills and techniques to move forward and maintain change.
Taking the first steps to seek out a counsellor can be a fearful time and we as therapists will not be the correct match for every individual. My aim would be to offer you counselling and support in a safe place, where we can work together and give you the opportunity to speak freely without fear of what others might think? When someone looks for a counsellor it is often because there is something happening in life they want to explore, this maybe: low self-worth, lacking in confidence, generally feeling of unhappiness, depression, anxiety, stress, grief, or other mental health concerns. We can work together at your pace.
I recognise that life is a journey that can sometimes be a struggle. Life in this modern world is often chaotic, stressful and moves at such a fast pace, yet our reptilian brains are still designed to deal with cave man threats. This can lead to our bodies being flooded with fight, flight or freeze responses. In time these can build and lead to conditions such as anxiety, depression and low level trauma if not dealt with correctly. Having the support to help you through is not always easy to find.
Hello. I have had over 30 years experience working in the NHS with Cancer and other illnesses. I provided counselling for all aspects of ill health and its associated mental health problems, anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, weight gain or loss. I also specialise in Fertility Counselling, Supportive, Therapeutic and Implications counselling. Whatever the problem, talk with me I help restore balance and perspective to life.
I wonder what it feels like to find yourself here, looking for some kind of support? Maybe you are struggling to 'make sense' of what you've been experiencing in your life recently? Many of my clients inhabit a crowded yet empty world, in which they cannot easily 'hear' themselves, or feel that they are not 'understood' by those around them. Perhaps you feel a little like this too? My first hope as a counsellor is that working collaboratively you will feel both heard and understood - maybe for the first time. When this happens, we begin to develop the inner resources needed to discover and engage with who we truly are.

Counselling for individuals, young people 13+ and couples in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire with fully qualified, experienced counsellor. Counselling can help with difficult feelings like anxiety, depression, grief, anger, loneliness and low self-esteem. Counselling can help you cope better with issues such as loss, relationship difficulties, stress, past traumas. Counselling can help you learn about yourself- your wants and needs – and how to meet them. Counselling for couples can help you remember what is right with your relationship, find ways to communicate more effectively and work together on what is difficult
I enjoy helping you discover the key to why you are suffering with anxiety, OCD or depression. I can help you feel better and will give you hope, love and acceptance. I understand struggling with anxiety can be overwhelming, particularly if you are experiencing panic attacks. It can literally feel like you are going to die. You are not going to die or going mad. Anxiety is simply your body's way of letting you know things are not quite right. Anxiety creates fear, which triggers the 'flight or fight' response. We can also become locked in a vicious circle of being afraid of the fear.
