I have developed my own specific integrative approach. I work with clients who have experienced loss and bereavement. Clients who have anxiety and depression. Clients with learning disabilities, Autism and Asperger’s. I offer the core conditions to my clients using the Person Centred Approach at the core of my therapeutic model. I am non-judgemental and offer empathy to my clients. I will support my clients through their course of therapy to make positive changes in their life. I enable my clients to recognise unhealthy behaviour patterns and work out ways to modify and change these.

Highly recommended effective therapy: "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.

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.

Hello and welcome. Finding the right therapist can feel a bit challenging and I would encourage always to try a few different ones before you decide. You are welcome to contact me to ask any questions that you may have by email or text is the best way to do this and from there we can arrange to speak on the phone at a time that suits you. I have been coaching clients for the last 16 years. My clients have described me as easy to talk to and relaxed, though I do offer a free assessment which is a two-way meeting to see how we get along, so you can dip your toe in the counselling/therapy water with no obligation.

With 20 years experience as a Counsellor & 10 years as an Art Psychotherapist within various NHS, Education and Community-based services, I've since specialised in EMDR therapy and am now an Accredited Practitioner with the EMDR Association UK & Ireland. Although EMDR is widely recognised as a trauma-focused therapy, it can effectively treat a broad range of issues, often in a relatively short-term time-frame. EMDR helps process intense emotions, self-limiting beliefs & behavioural patterns in the present which seem stuck on repeat, as they often track back to distressing or overwhelming relational-issues or life events in the past.

It can feel very lonely when battling with anxiety or depression: to feel overwhelmed with powerful emotions or to feel without hope or just lifeless inside. In addition, many have found the Covid 19 outbreak has shaken up their lives and caused fear and uncertainty about the future. Maybe you have found time to reflect on problem relationships or unfulfilled life goals or are finding pain, trauma and hurt from difficult times gone by have become harder to cope with. Therapy provides a way to process what’s happening, a tool box for change and growth and a chance to get back in control feeling renewed and hopeful again.

Crucial to this is developing a trusting, consistent relationship within which we can explore far and wide, whilst remaining safe and contained.

Sometimes in our lives, we experience periods where we need additional support to manage a difficult situation, work through a particular issue, or understand something from our past. Whilst friends and family can be a huge source of love and support, at times we need someone impartial to help us to make sense of things. I offer a space that is safe and calm, non-judgemental and confidential, so that you may share whatever is going on for you. I consider you to be the expert on your life, and my role as a therapist is to sit alongside you, as we make sense together, as an act of collaboration and co-creation.

Integrative Counsellors
Integrative therapy in CT9 refers to therapy in which elements from different types of therapy may be used. Therapists 'integrate' two or more therapeutic styles (e.g. Cognitive and Family Systems) to bring about a personalised and practical approach to healing. These CT9 integrative therapy Counsellors practice an integrative therapy style.

Integrative therapy (with a small 'i') may also refer to the process of 'integrating' the personality by taking disowned or unresolved aspects of the self and making them part of a cohesive personality whole. It reduces the use of defense mechanisms that inhibit spontaneity and allows flexibility in solving emotional problems.

How can I tell if a counsellor is right for me?
Counsellors and therapists in CT9 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, you can find CBT Therapists in CT9 who focus on a specific issue, as well as DBT Therapists in CT9 who help clients with new skills to manage their emotions and relationships.

If you're seeking a marriage counsellor in CT9 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in CT9 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in CT9 or family therapy in CT9.
