There may be something on your mind now, at this time in your life. You may feel depressed, worried or anxious after a relationship breakdown, a bereavement, problems at work or family issues? Perhaps you can’t stop worrying about what other people think of you. Or maybe you’ve always felt there was something wrong and now you want to talk to someone. This might be the right time to work with a counsellor like Mark with life experience who won’t judge and will take your problems seriously.
Research shows that good counselling depends on the quality of the therapeutic relationship. That’s why Mark offers Person-Centred counselling, based on evidence that empathy and care make a good relationship and help you to grow. He works to create a confidential, safe place to experience compassion for who you are and help you find a new outlook on life.
