Who am I?
I am Scott and I am Humanistic and Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist
What I believe
I fundamentally believe that all of us have the ability to change to become the best version of ourselves, whatever that may be. Each of us is beautifully unique and I embrace that uniqueness. I believe that true change occurs when people are offered a relationship that is different to what they have experienced before. This is why I offer my clients a relationship based on empathy, understanding and that is non-judgmental, where they can explore their feelings and experiences safely and where we face them together. I am trained to integrate different theories of psychotherapy so that my clients and myself can gain a greater insight into what they have experienced and what is going on in the present moment.
Qualifications and Experience
I have completed a BSc (Hons) in Counselling and Psychotherapy at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham. I have complete over 1000 hours of client work, working for Cedar Counselling in Birmingham and working in private practice.
Types of therapy
I offer face to face, online via Zoom, and telephone therapy. I am currently based in Pelsall, which is located near to Walsall, Lichfield and Brownhills, however I am happy to work with you wherever you reside.
Here are some of the issues I can help with:
Childhood Relational Issues
Work related stress
At our first session I will explain the contract and the confidentiality agreement that exists between us.
I am an accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). To be an accredited member of the BACP means that the BACP recognizes me as a highly competent, ethical practitioner and I adhere to all guidance and the ethical framework set out by this professional body.
