Michael LipoIntegrative psychotherapist
I am an integrated psychotherapist and counsellor, offering a blend of Humanistic Counselling and CBT. This allows for a strong relationship to develop, which helps deeper work to be completed. It also allows for a goal to be held in mind that we can work towards. The relationship is essential so that you feel safe and trust the process, which helps you to access the work more easily, and potentially quicker.
I strongly believe in what I do and am passionate about doing it. I feel that I can work with a range of topics without becoming too broad. If I feel that I am unable to help you or work with you, I will help you find the right counsellor. It's a difficult process and I will make sure that it is as stress free as possible.
Our sessions will be entirely about getting you to where you want to be, and utilising a number of techniques. We can explore the past and your experiences when you were younger or the more recent past. Or we can focus on the present, and work at how things are going for you now. I don't complicate things, and I try make it as calming and relaxing as possible, whilst also encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone. I truly believe in the power of counselling and will ensure you have as positive an experience as possible.
I take the role as counsellor very seriously, and adhere to the BACP's ethical framework. I have regular supervision and CPD training to ensure that my knowledge is up-to-date and I am being challenged to develop my understanding of the Human Condition. I am always looking for ways to improve what I offer, and will work with you to get you to where you want to be.
