A Christian Counsellor for Spiritual Healing

Gain confidence and resilience and enjoy better relationships.

I am a male Christian counsellor based near Rotherham and Barnsley. As I have done, you could find healing, confidence and new strength to deal with existential challenges. As a bonus, your relationships should improve, too.

Perhaps life has thrown you a curve ball, and you feel powerless, as many others have. I’ve been somewhere similar myself some time back, but I found that speaking to someone who offered me acceptance for no apparent reason helped me to become open enough to find new answers.

Well, now it’s my turn to give something back, and my journey to becoming a Christian counsellor makes me a more understanding listener for you and anyone who happens to get in touch and make an appointment. Just imagine telling somebody who listens without judgment the things you dare not share with others.

“I felt I could understand more about who I am and what my future expectations are.”

I hope that by following the path of compassion, love, wisdom and truth, I can guide you to a more compassionate self-understanding. Subsequently, it would be natural for you to let go of the coping mechanisms and unhelpful habits that hold you back from being yourself and enjoy loving relationships instead.

Many people have improved their lives by working with me.

A Male Counsellor

Sometimes, the counsellor’s gender affects how comfortable you may be exploring your thoughts.

Most men will likely find it easier to talk openly with a male counsellor such as myself. This can help them better understand how relationships work and improve their quality of life. Moreover, some women would also look for a man’s perspective.

Find Healing

As a non-religious Christian therapist, I have a spiritual perspective that focuses on becoming a whole person – that’s what healing is.

Healing is becoming whole, specifically, growing away from a fragmented mind and towards complete self-awareness and inner peace. Significantly, it’s how to heal conflicts within yourself and in relationships. Does that make sense to you?

Moreover, you should be able to maintain the experience of joy, contentment and better vitality wherever you are.

Gain Confidence

Your view of yourself and the world, including your spiritual beliefs, is valid as far as I’m concerned. So, fear not. I am here for you, not by focussing on feelings of shame around what you “should” do but by noticing what helps you be true to yourself.

I believe it’s my job to listen as you state your goal and assist you in clarifying everything relevant to your journey. I hope to encourage you by walking part of the way with you so you learn to trust the still, quiet voice. This is called “the voice of good counsel” in the scriptures.

Grow Resilient

To many people, strength is about dominating others. However, if you take a moment to think about how a tree branch flexes in the wind but doesn’t break, you may understand that a flexible approach to life’s problems is helpful. A word I like to use for this type of strength is resilience

Real strength comes from being flexible.

As a Christian counsellor, I focus entirely on seeing the goodness in you, and I encourage you to know that for yourself. I hope you will stop judging yourself and others and enjoy lasting peace.

“I felt comfortable enough to dive deeper than ever before.”

Improve Relationships

Do you suffer relationship problems, such as constant bickering, hurtful words, not talking, or infidelity? If your partner isn’t interested in meeting a counsellor or you identify that your behaviour is a problem, then I might be the person to talk to.

I have experience with what works, so I support individual clients in improving their lives and relationships by letting go of hidden traumas and learning to love.

Maybe you could deal with the emotional baggage that causes you to be easily triggered. Then, you can draw closer to your loved ones.

If you’re stuck thinking there is no way out, going round and round, doing the same thing and thinking the same things, then get in touch for a free consultation. Your well-being and mental health are my passion.

My primary qualifications are three diplomas:

Work Experience

  • In 2001, a mental health helpline in Barnsley. Worked as a phone call taker.
