Mark Morris Integrative counsellor ,
I am a qualified counsellor (BSc (Hons) and Registered Member of the BACP.
I see clients in some settings including private practice. I am an Integrative and Therapeutic counsellor, which means the work we will do together is from some different counselling schools, this works very well as this allows me to adapt a counselling package tailored specifically to your needs as we are all unique.
The thought of counselling for some people can be daunting and this may be your first step in contacting a counsellor which is understandable.
I myself have had a challenging past and this is one of the reasons why I went into counselling as I understand how difficult it can be to reach out for help.
If you decide to work with me I am warm, non-judgmental, empathic and the first road we travel down is The Person-Centered approach, where we collaborate for the best outcome for you. As such I will not put any pressure on you, as being in a collaboration I can work with what you are happy in doing, and getting to where you want to be.
Areas of specialty;
Anger Management, PTSD, Trauma, Depression, Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Low-Self-Esteem.
This approach is delivered through Systemic, Systems theory as this views the client through the whole meaning of their lives, eg; the workplace, Family and partner relationships which is all relevant in helping people to move forward with their lives.
How many sessions and How to contact me
It's completely up to you, I have had some clients for just one session(which is absolutely fine) and have had some for 30 weeks plus. The average though is 8 sessions.
Most counsellors preferred way of working is weekly, however, some clients come weekly, some come fortnightly, I would rather leave the frequency for appointments completely up to you as this is your choice and it is important to me to work with you at your pace.
We will review and recap the sessions each time to see if continuing for you is beneficial, or it may be that the frequency needs changing, or even to take a break, or plan an ending together if that is what you wish to do at any time as the choice is yours.
The first contact is usually via email, however, if you wish you could include your telephone number.
