Hello, my name is Phil and I am a Merseyside UK based Integrative Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. I offer a confidential, ethical & compassionate service based on what is best for you. Iâ€™m here to listen; then, if and when you feel comfortable, to work with you to try and support you, find some answers or get some insight into whatâ€™s going on for you. Counselling is not about railroading people into things they donâ€™t want to do; I am here to support you with your concerns and not add to them, making the decision to come to counselling can be very challenging, I am very aware and respectful of that. In addition to my private practice I worked as a counsellor for a charity in Birkenhead for 7 years, now I currently teach Understanding Substance Misuse and Level 4 Counselling Diploma at level 4 at Wirral Met College. Like most people Iâ€™ve experienced several of my own difficult periods in life and as a result have a well-rounded empathic view of life and people in general.
