Chris’ approach to counselling is to listen carefully to clients, to gain understanding of their situation, and to work with them towards their goals which may be improvement in behaviour or relationships, emotional wellbeing or gaining self-control. He encourages his clients to increase their awareness, in between sessions, of their internal thoughts, habits, and their reactions to situations they encounter.

Chris is compassionate and respectful and creates a trusting and relaxed environment in counselling. He uses a variety of practical, effective, personalised strategies drawn from evidence-based approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT).
