Welcome. My name is Mark (pronouns he/they). I am a qualified counsellor with a passion for working with people from a range of backgrounds and experiences.
I work with people who identify as LGBTQ+, in particular those exploring their sense of gender and sexuality, as well as relationships. I also work with race/ethnicity, mixed heritage, neurodiversity; additionally I’m experienced with working with those living with HIV.
I’m qualified in relational counselling with a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, trained to the Clarkson's Relational Model, working in particular with the therapeutic relationship and transference - I feel that healing can happen through building a good therapeutic relationship.
I’ve practised as a counsellor since 2018, and have worked and volunteered in different areas of mental health since 2009 - Metro Charity, THT and Samaritans.
I'm also BACP registered (379659), and have had training in neurodiversity, safeguarding, chemsex, CNM, trauma, HIV and toxic shame. I have private and public indemnity insurance through Howdens.
