How does the counsellor work?

As a relational integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, Christian is concerned with being non-judgemental, open and offering an understanding relationship. He adapts his style of working to the needs of the individual in an environment that is safe, supportive and non-judgemental. Together, you and Christian would explore your experiences and feelings, concentrating on what you consider most important. Integrative therapy is designed to have a flexible approach which enables the counsellor to closely follow your unique way of experiencing the world, adapt to your personal way of being and the different types of issues you might bring to counselling. Working closely along side you, Christian's aim would be to help you make sense of your issues and/or to explore ways of approaching them in a potentially different way to enable you to find solutions to problems or new perspectives on life. Integrative therapy also makes use of Mindfulness CBT which allows you to become more aware and in control of your thoughts and feelings.

Christian offers short term counselling in Newport or longer term psychotherapy in Newport. He is a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adheres to their code of ethics and complaints procedure.
