Hi I’m Don, I would to welcome you and share a brief overview of my life, my personal reasons why I became a counsellor and how my therapeutic provision is continuing to change lives today, making differences in the community and reducing mental distress.
I have been in practice for 10 years and am continually privileged to support people as they process, explore and restore their lives. I entered the world of therapy having personally experienced mental health issues as a teenager and subsequently experiencing bereavement with the loss of two children. Understanding a client’s world is paramount, being listened to with empathy, not being judged, and being given a confidential space was for me the key to releasing my feelings and thoughts and this is underpinning my service to clients today.
After studying person-centered counselling I found this a perfect place to support my clients, but as my practice grew I became aware that some clients required a different approach to move forward positively, after all, there is no one-size-fits-all approach when supporting clients because in my experience different clients have the unique difficulties they need to explore and process.
Whilst working in various schools, government, and educational settings it was evident that a different approach was required to achieve solutions and provide a change in clients. My personal life experiences inspired me to change lives and subsequently with a determined approach I acquired my coaching diploma which is raising positive attitudes and improving mental health.
I can truly empathise with just how scary it can be to take that first step to seek support can be but exploring and a will to achieve has changed my life, it could do the same for you. I look forward to meeting and working with you.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists)
(membership below) and adhere to their codes of ethics.
I am also a Member of Fusion Therapeutic Coaching FCTC).
My practice supports adults and students in all settings which include prisons, secured units, youth offending, schools, universities and industry my personal belief and experience shows that exploring and removing mental distress or barriers promotes self-growth, confidence, self-esteem, and positive attitudes leading to a balanced and resilient human being.
