Mates in Mind

I'm Michael, an accredited member of the National Counselling Society. I completed my counselling training in 2011 and continue to update my skills in a range of wellbeing topics. I work part time as a counsellor and offer appointments on weekday evenings in Coventry and Warwickshire.

I trained in an integrated approach to therapy and tailor my support to my clients needs drawing on person-centred and cognitive behavioural approaches. Encouraging focus on an individuals unique experience of distress, understanding distress and if appropriate addressing negative patterns of behaviour. I enjoy working with adults and older adults around many issues such as low mood, depression, stress, anxiety, grief/loss, suicidal thoughts and people affected by dementia.
