Testimonials and Qualifications
"Andrew was a massive help to get me through a very difficult time. He gave me strength to work through the problems I was having, and now I feel stronger and more confident. Andrew made me feel very welcome, he listened closely to what I was feeling and he gave amazing advice. If I ever needed help again I would definitely see him."
"Thank you very much for all your help Andy. You were really easy to open up to, I felt relaxed talking to you and really listened to. You always helped me come up with goals and things to try to make things better, and you kept me on focus about what was really important to me. I went through a lot in the weeks I was talking to you so thanks for being there! I feel like it’s been the start of a bit of a journey but the start I needed".
"At first I was very dubious of talking to a counsellor about my issues but within the first session Andrew made me feel very comfortable and I realised the benefits of talking to a trained professional - of which he undoubtedly is. Even from the first contact by phone he made me feel at ease about talking about my issues which wasn’t easy"
"Counselling Leamington Spa with Andy helped me to see things from a different perspective and to re-evaluate my situation. It has helped me understand myself. The tools that Andy gave me have been really useful."
"Counselling with Andrew was great, he helped me to track down the route of my problems and he gave me coping strategies to move forward. Also it was good to talk to someone who doesn't things to heart."
"I would highly recommend Andrew's counselling service to anyone who has any issue, I knew the support was only a phone call away. Many Thanks."
"Andrew helped me through a really tough time when my relationship had ended. My self-esteem was rock bottom but he gave me the strength and confidence to move on and to recognise and develop what I am good at in life"

Areas of Specialism
I have worked as a volunteer counsellor for Youth Information Services counselling people ages 16-24. I have also had private clients from the ages of 14 and upwards.
I have worked as a support worker for adults with autism in Warwickshire for seven years and many of my private counselling clients are on the autistic spectrum.
Having suffered from depression and social anxiety in the past I received CBT to help me explore; my patterns of behaviour, why I found social situations difficult and how I could move forward with increased confidence. I have great enjoyment in sharing this knowledge and helping others move on through difficult periods.
