My name is Christophe and I offer a person-centered way of working, to help you address difficulties and follow your emotional compass. For me, it is important to take the time to really understand life as it is experienced uniquely by you. Meaning I don't listen out for buzzwords like anxiety or depression, and presume to know what the answer will be. I appreciate that we all experience such challenges to our mental wellbeing differently, and aim to help you fully understand it for yourself so we can find the areas in life you find yourself feeling stuck in.

It is all too common for us to get stuck in our emotions left over from something in the past, or use more "acceptable" ones to cover the most helpful ones. I'll help you pay closer attention to your emotions as they're experienced in session. This includes looking closely at how they are felt in the body, using a focusing-orientated approach, in reach the important messages our emotions try to share with us: Such as what is important for us right now; what we need, or what action to take;.

I entered my counselling journey through the University of Strathclyde's MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy. From there, I picked up full-time role in Nottingham where I work closely with survivors of trauma and sexual violence. This opportunity has given me a great deal f experience working with trauma, and many of the accompanying well-being challenges including flashbacks, anxiety, depression, self-harm, panic attacks, and so much more

There isn't a day that goes by where I'm not still learning from books, or from my clients. And I bring this wealth of knowledge and experience into the session in a way that ensures you're getting the most beneficial therapeutic experience. Get in touch with me today and we can take the time to explore further what your needs are, not just form therapy, but from myself as your counsellor.
