How can I arrange to have counselling?
Counselling is usually arranged by the individual themselves. I normally suggest an initial session as an opportunity for us to look at what you would like to get out of the counselling, how we might work together and for you to ask any questions that you might have.
What might counselling help me with?

Counselling can help with a wide range of issues relating to depression, bereavement, identity, loss, relationship difficulties, fertility, developing assertiveness, stress, problems with alcohol or drugs, trauma, workplace problems, dealing with change, culture, anxiety and issues related to gender, sexual and relationship diversity (GSDR). Derek has had experience of working with a very broad range of clients and issues and an initial session would help you explore the focus for your counselling.

As a senior accredited member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), Derek works within their Ethical Framework and guidelines for confidentiality.
If you are considering counselling, please email or call 07813 708 331 for an informal discussion.
