Welcome to Sierra Counselling
My name is Michael, and I am a fully qualified and professional Therapist and Supervisor with over 20 years of ongoing experience and knowledge.
I know from my own personal experience how challenging life can be and how therapy can be a great way not only to help focus thoughts and understand emotions but also to make positive changes and to encourage growth and a happier way of living. My own journey required me to take that leap of faith and seek support, which in turn helped me change my perspective on life and which in turn allowed me to change direction and become not only my own internal therapist but also a therapist to others, a career change that I have not regretted, and which has enabled me to see the possible change in others.
Throughout my time as a therapist, I have worked with many types of clients issues and has part of my own ongoing professional development I continue to train and update my knowledge on a regular basis.
I have worked in different settings throughout the past 20 years which includes working with a National Sexual Health Charity and various settings in relation to Children and Young People (CYP) which I still have a particular interest in and involvement with. However, I have a real interest in working with MEN in therapy since it has become more aware that men’s mental health is struggling and how challenging it can be to access support without feeling shame or weakness. Therapy can be a great space for men to experience the opportunity to explore their emotional wellbeing, behaviours and expectations that often need to be managed.
I know how daunting this can feel but I am also aware of how empowering therapy can be.
I have continued to grow as a therapist and know work purely ONLINE. I am a BACP Member (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) a Registered Member of NCPS (National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society) and a Senior Professional Member of ACTO (Association for Counselling and Therapy Online)_
