Craig SchornIntegrative counsellor
You may be feeling down, unmotivated, anxious or angry and need a safe, impartial space to work through what's troubling you or holding you back, to find a clearer perspective on behaviour patterns and coping mechanisms that no longer serve you. I will guide and nurture you in your process so we can reflect deeply on your concerns and gain the necessary insight into your subconscious drives to discover the change that will enable you to move forward in your life and flourish as your authentic self.
A member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), I trained in Integrative Therapy at Mary Ward Centre in London. I have been a successful restaurateur, artist and writer and my own life challenges and my journey through personal therapy inspired me to do this rewarding work. In addition to private practice, I work as a volunteer counsellor at ELOP, an LGBTQ+ counselling service where I see a diverse group of clients, both individuals and couples, including trans and non-binary people and issues around sex and sexuality. I have a decade of experience in drug and alcohol recovery as well as other process addictions like sex and porn. I am also specialising in working with couples with relationship difficulties. I have facilitated group therapy work and have experience with developmental trauma and post traumatic stress.
As an integrative therapist, I respond to your individual needs and cover issues around anxiety, self-esteem, depression, trauma, sexuality, gender, sex and relationships, grief and work stress. I draw from psychodynamic, humanistic, CBT and person-centred approaches, focussing also on your somatic experience. Working in a trauma-informed way I focus on attachment and on how our nervous systems link to our emotions and influence our behaviour and how we can adapt and direct these in order to grow, flourish and overcome adversity.
