Hugh Howe, MA MBACP
Hello, My belief strongly underpins my person-centred non-directive approach but will use psychodynamic approach and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) if and when required. As a counsellor I am aware of the difficulties clients face and the stigma attached to seeing a counsellor, but I strongly feel that through these pathways and steps forward into counselling positive changes will occur in client’s lives.
“We were increasingly worried about some aspects of our 11 year old son’s behaviour and his general mental well-being. So we approached Hugh who undertook a course of therapy with him. Over a period of weekly sessions we found our son increasingly happy to visit Hugh and his gentle approach seemed to bring about a noticeable improvement in his apparent wellbeing. All in all we would recommend Hugh very highly, noting of course that it takes a while to get results and, as with children more generally, it is sometimes it is two steps forward and one back. However, we feel like he now is a much happier 11 year old boy.”
I felt my thoughts were taken very seriously and felt my therapist respected me and was caring. This helped me to face and work through the problems that affected me in my life. Thank you so much for being there for me.
