Counselling for change
Hello, I'm Michael. I'm a qualified counsellor offering face-to-face counselling in Shrewsbury (UK), and telephone and video counselling anywhere.
Coronavirus Lockdown: I have returned to face-to-face counselling. If you're looking for counselling in person, please get in touch and I look forward to meeting you.
Whatever brings you here, please feel free to get in touch. It's important to find the right counsellor for you and I'm happy to hear and answer any questions you have. We can arrange a 15-minute phone call, free of charge and without obligation, to help you make your choice.
Beginning counselling, or starting with a new counsellor, can feel daunting. Naturally, you may want to know about me and the way I work. I practice person-centred therapy, one of the main approaches to psychotherapy and I have a Masters degree (with distinction) in Clinical Counselling from Chester University.
I'm a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I follow its ethical guidelines.
You can find out more about how I work here.
Benefits of therapy
Therapy can help you to overcome depression, anxiety (and generalised anxiety disorder (GAD)), low self-esteem, panic attacks, anger issues, addiction, 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 eating disorders, addiction, insomnia, nightmares, and panic attacks. Therapy provides a means to uncover and remove the obstacles to peace.
I'm listed by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. My registered-member status confirms that I'm qualified to practice and that I complete at least 30 hours of continued professional development each year.
