Hello, im Oliver, I am an experienced counsellor who offers a safe space for you to talk confidentially about anything at all that you may be struggling with, without being judged, on any aspect of life and your relationships with others and with yourself. This can be from any part of your life past and present, hidden and unhidden and work towards a more healthy enriched life. As humans we often follow the same patterns over and over in life and end up in the same feelings being felt. If these are unhappy or unwanted feelings then counselling can help examine this and look for other routes forward.

Since 1981 I have worked in several therapeutic and care settings. I formally qualified as a Counsellor in 1996. Since that time I have run several counselling services in universities and concurrently run an assessment centre for adults in employment and education with disabilities. I continue to educate myself and will always be curious and keen to learn from the world around you and me. It keeps things real and being authentic is one of my core values. A key question that I often return to is ‘what do you want more of in your life?’ so don’t be surprised if this features early in our time together!

Sometimes, life feels a little out of balance. It's important that we find our own answers to the things that concern us about our lives. It's also important that we find a way to do this that suits our preferences, our needs and our styles. It's vital that we find a place where we can consider those questions about our lives and the situations we find ourselves in with patience, compassion and care. Finding a counsellor or psychotherapist to be with us can bring enormous benefit during difficult times.

I prefer to work in an integrative and flexible way as I don't believe in a one size fits all approach to therapy, you're an individual and so the way that we work together will be equally individual. Essentially this means that I will work with you to explore your problems and find emotional balance in your life. I believe that even if you are feeling the lowest you have ever felt things can get better and that you are absolutely able to make changes in your life.
