About Mike

I have been practising counselling for over ten years now.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and I am on the Counselling Register. I am an integrative counsellor, which means that I have a range of approaches at my disposal, and I choose to work with each individual client based on what we both feel will be of greatest benefit.

I have a Diploma in Integrative Humanistic Counselling and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Drug and Alcohol Studies, both from London universities. I have undertaken further specialist training to be of more effective help to victims of traumatic incidents. Eye Movement treatment is recognised by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence as being an appropriate intervention for post traumatic stress disorder, where symptoms like flashbacks, panic attacks, nightmares and insomnia may persist long after the event that triggered them.

I have a Practitioner Certificate in Eye Movement Integration. I am a Master Practitioner in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), which helps clients to replace limiting beliefs with healthy positive and creative self-image.
