My approach is pan-humanistic but with a leaning toward Gestalt.
I’m Chris and I’m a fully qualified and very experienced psychotherapist and counsellor. I’ve practised privately for over 20 years and have worked in NHS Primary Care, with EAP providers, for the HE Sector and for West Midlands Police. I offer a professional, friendly, safe and effective service. I offer long-term and short-term therapy and personal development work and specialize in treating anxiety and depression, abuse, relationship difficulties, sexual issues, anger problems, bereavement and workplace-related stress. I welcome you in your wholeness; your thoughts, emotions, sexuality and spirituality, your difficulties and strengths and unique history. I aim to respond to you from the depth of my listening and experience, to respect any cultural differences and individual preferences and help you in developing enough support and insight to make the changes or choices that, on your own, have seemed elusive or impossible. I am a humanistic practitioner, with a Diploma in Counselling, MSc In Gestalt Psychotherapy (Metanoia) and Certificate in Supervision (CSTD). My fees are £60 for Counselling/Psychotherapy, £55 for Supervision (£50 Students). I sometimes have some concessionary places.

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
