About Me

** COVID-19 Update - 2 Different Pay Schemes currently available **

Hello, and welcome to my profile.

My name is Anthony, and my goal is simple - to help you take back control, when it comes to your own mental health.

So, if you seek the presence of empathy and a deep understanding, alongside a genuine manner that will never judge, please feel free to get in touch.  In a similar way, if your goal in life is simply to grow on your terms - in the process, potentially finding more space to unleash that inner voice - again, I would love to hear from you.  I also have an interest in working with/alongside the business and education sectors, where the same principles will apply.

How will Counselling help?

I offer a uniquely creative, person-centered approach, where I will always try to see past any labels that may come up ... albeit, in a respectful, mindful and ethical way.  Having said that, I do have experience with a variety of issues e.g. anxiety and depression, relationship issues, and long-term illness.  Ultimately, though, I will see you as unique, as we work together to build a trustworthy, healthy therapeutic relationship, where openness and consistency will always be key.

Getting Started

Step 1 - Initial contact, followed by a short 15-20 minute conversation on the phone, where I can find out more about you, and what you hope to gain from your counselling experience, while also touching on certain elements e.g. Contracting.

Step 2 - 1st Session/initial Consultation via Zoom (preferable) or Whatsapp Video, or alternatively, on the telephone/via e-mail.

Step 3 - Assuming all goes well, more will obviously follow, and ideally, on a weekly basis (at least, early on).

Client Testimonial

'After years of battling depression and anxiety, and a period where I hit rock bottom, I decided I couldn't carry on like this, so I searched for a Counselor and after looking through a list I found Anthony.  I messaged him and he was very responsive.  I didn't know what to expect, but I arrived to lovely surroundings and immediately burst into tears; after telling him about my issues, he was great, non-judgmental, and he really listened - just what I needed.  I have been seeing him every week since, and he is really helping me deal with things.  I would highly recommend him, as he knows his stuff.'

2.   £80 (for the 1st 3) - a saving of £25.

Please Note: Over time, you will be free to switch between the two if your circumstances change/demand it.

Training and qualifications

I qualified with a Diploma in Person-Centered Counselling, completing over 100 hours of client work in the process (via CICS, the Colchester Institute Counselling Service, which is accessed by a wide range of people).  Other qualifications include a degree in Humanities & Philosophy, an advanced GNVQ in Business, and an Introduction to Screenwriting certificate; hence, a keen interest in potentially using creativity in my work with clients.

Experience, and what drives me as a Counselor

In the past, I have worked as a courier, in the hospitality sector, and I was also involved in an internet start-up, however, I decided to become a Counselor because I felt this was the best way to utilize my talents, where the core conditions held onto by the person-centered approach - namely, empathy, unconditional positive regard and congruence (or being genuine) - have always felt close to home, and happily, a natural fit.

M.E./Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Finally, it is worth mentioning my own experience with M.E. - a condition that often involves many additional pressures, and over a long period of time; all of which provides a certain 'know-how', and a strong basis for working with a variety of issues.
