Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You determine what matter regarding your early years and/or adulthood you discuss. An aim of counselling is to enable you to talk about a problem and find a way forward which is appropriate for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

He is experienced not only in his methods of healing your mind but also he's a person who has had experience at life, so there's nothing that won't shock him not only as a therapist but as a human being, and he doesn't judge you no matter what you have been or are going through!"
