Hello. I'm Mark, and I'm a qualified integrative therapeutic counsellor and I have been working and volunteering within mental wellbeing since 2010, in particular with LGBTQ+ issues such as those around sexuality, HIV and gender identity. I work with difference and diversity in mind as I believe in having a strong sense of our own identity, including race and ethnicity as well as sexuality, gender and HIV status.
I work relationally, that is to say to help you understand how you relate to yourself and with others and the world around you; sometimes how we are relating in the therapy room can inform your other patterns of relating. I also feel that going beyond talking can be useful, such us guided visualisations, discussing dreams, drawing and writing. Above all, I feel that a strong and trusting rapport between us is fundamental to allowing you to grow, blossom and flourish as a unique human being.
