Jerry LivingsSolution-focused therapy counsellor
I spent over 25 years in the Finance industry. Work related anxiety caused me a lot of problems. I felt miserable, guilty and ashamed. I experienced depression, anxiety, and took time off sick as a result. It affected my performance at work and caused lots of problems in my personal life. I ended up in a vicious circle, scared of work and achieving so little because I was frightened I’d make a mistake and lose my job… which made the prospect of losing my job even more likely.
I knew how work was making me feel, but I couldn’t see how things could ever get any better. Eventually I got professional help, and discovered that I already had the resources to improve my situation. It was just that I’d struggled to find those resources on my own.
After I left the Finance industry, I studied and qualified as a Counsellor & Psychotherapist. I’m an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society (MNCS), and a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I completed specialist training in online counselling, using Webcam, Instant Message, Email and Voice Only, with the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online.
Previously, I’ve been a Counsellor with MIND, and I’ve worked with the Samaritans. I’ve helped many people with all sorts of problems, some of which I have experienced myself. Some of these problems include Anxiety, Depression, Bereavement, Anger, Suicidal feelings, Loneliness.
