Phil ThurgoodMindfulness counsellor
Hello, my name is Phil I run a small independent country practice. I offer a professional and confidential service, this can be done by telephone consultations, video calls, home visits by arrangement and these are done on a one to one basis.
I have been working as a certified Counsellor since 2019. I have 26 years of experience within mental health, mental health forensic services my current role with Adult Social Care. I specialize in helping people identify and achieve their personal goals by coping with the issues that are causing them distress, anxiety, and stress. I value individual difference, honesty, integrity, finding your own path, standing out from the crowd, connection, relationship. I strongly believe people can be empowered to find their own answers. I know that I am not a fixer, and I don't have all the answers, although I might have a suggestion or two. I know that I am OK to sit with people in chaos. I can tolerate stuckness, and I am not afraid to be afraid, nor walk into a dark place. Get in touch to learn more. Please be kind to yourself
