Therapy and Counselling

BACP-accredited therapist offering in-person sessions in Shrewsbury, UK, and remote sessions anywhere

  • A safe, non-judgmental environment for exploring emotional and life difficulties

  • Free introductory call: find out more, without obligation

Hello, I'm Michael Neath.  I'm an experienced, accredited therapist offering confidential, face-to-face therapy and counselling in Shrewsbury (UK), and by telephone and video anywhere else. 

I've worked with many people through their distress, anger, frustration, low self-esteem, and other difficult feelings.  Others have come to address depression, anxiety, or the effects of abuse and trauma.  Therapy gives the opportunity to achieve a more peaceful way of living and being.​

I'm an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (the BACP).  My accreditation means I'm recognised as providing clients a "higher standard as a competent, ethical and independent practitioner" by the BACP.

I offer a 15-minute phone call, free of charge and without obligation, to help you decide whether you'd like to work with me.  My office is in central Shrewsbury, on a quiet street by the library.

I treat all enquiries in confidence.  You can contact me by calling 07746 182178, emailing, or by using the contact form.

Please get in touch if you have any questions - or if you feel ready to make a start.

Client Comments

Michael greeted me like an old friend and I instantly felt relaxed and calm - I opened up completely and never looked back.  I can honestly say that speaking with a counsellor has had an extremely positive impact on me and my self confidence has grown and grown.

Having thought I would find the counselling process difficult, Michael immediately made me feel comfortable and I found myself able to fully open up about what I was feeling and experiencing.  The sessions were a great turning point in my life and they helped me become more aware of the person I am and want to be.  I would recommend Michael to anybody looking for counselling.

Michael really has helped me transform the quality of my life.  This has enabled me to see what is truly important to me.  I strongly recommend speaking to him if you are struggling and want to work on better understanding yourself and finding happiness.

I was a little unsure of what to expect from the counselling process, however Michael made me feel at ease straight away and I had no problems opening up to him. There were no interruptions while I was talking or explaining my thoughts and he helped me find the right words to explore my feelings. Michael provides a safe space to talk freely and gives me a positive outlook following his sessions allowing for a better quality of life.

Therapy can help you to overcome depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, panic attacks, anger issues, feeling sad, and coping with family issues, separation and divorce, among many other problems.

These issues or the harm of past trauma may in turn underlie such problems as substance use, disordered eating, insomnia, nightmares, and panic attacks.  Therapy provides a means to uncover and remove the obstacles to peace.
