Counselling for Men...
More and more men are now beginning to recognise the value of gaining professional help with personal difficulties and are seeking help through counselling. However, whilst there are numerous counselling services providing support exclusively for women it can be much harder to find similar therapy for male issues. I think it makes equal sense to acknowledge the challenges faced by men today so if you would prefer to discus your concerns with another man please feel free to call me.
"I found Nick to be a most caring and empathic counsellor, able to listen when I just wanted to talk and to give sound, practical help when this was clearly what I was looking for. If the sign of a good counsellor is that his client feels so much better (and wiser) at the end of the course of sessions, then Nick is someone I would most heartily recommend. And I know that his door is open should I ever need to avail myself of his skills again." Peter

Counselling for Women...
It can be particularly helpful for women to share concerns with an empathic male counsellor. This is especially true when the aim is to to re-establish trust and confidence lost as a consequence of an abusive relationship. Even where abuse is not the issue many women today continue to be affected by inequalities at home and in the workplace and are frequently faced with tackling the multiple challenges of work, relationships and family life. Sharing your concerns with a counsellor, a neutral person outside of our lives can be really helpful. Counselling can offer you confidential, non-judgemental support enabling you to develop fresh insight into your difficulties.
"The person-centred therapist's work lacks the attributes of male dominance and seems to require the qualities more commonly associated with maternal warmth and female sensitivity. It is undoubtedly the experience of many male person-centred therapists that their female clients frequently tell them that they have never before experienced such empathic responsiveness from a man...."
