"Hi. Welcome, my name's Steve"
Choosing someone you can trust, to support you as you work to overcome whatever difficulties you are facing, is an important decision and perhaps one that you thought you’d never have to make.
That’s why I’d like to take this opportunity to let you know a little about my values, experiences and outlook, so you can decide whether you feel I could be the one, to be alongside you, as you safely explore ways of making the changes you feel you need, in order to live the life, you want.
I came to counselling relatively late in life and draw on the many and varied life experiences I have had, in order to make genuine connections with the individual stories and experiences of the clients I work with.
I fully appreciate that the twists and turns of life can sometimes leave you facing barriers that at times can feel insurmountable. I also know that getting the correct support at the right time, can start to break down those barriers, giving you a clearer view of the possibilities that lie ahead.
For me, there are few more satisfying experiences, than to see a client I've been working with, start to break free of negative experiences and emotions that have been holding them back, and to see them begin to develop the inner strength and resilience needed to live a life of fulfilment.
We live in a diverse society and I value everybody’s right to be who they truly are and to live their lives in their own way. I try to live by this open, accepting and non-judgemental attitude and this is reflected in my approach to counselling.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
