Mark really values the importance of building a trusting relationship in a safe environment in which clients feel free to explore their issues, experiences, and feelings. Understanding that every client is different, he tends to work integratively adapting to the unique needs of each client.
Mark’s main training focused upon the role of the relationship providing the basis for self-discovery, change and growth. He recognises the significance of the past or the role of childhood in forming a blueprint for given behavioural or thought patterns which may recur throughout our lives.
As well as this core training, Mark has also received additional training in working with the bereaved, the depressed and the traumatised and he currently works with all three areas. He is a great believer in personal and professional development as a lifelong process as he feels that the more he can develop, the more he can offer to his clients to help them to recognise their own potential for change and growth.
Mark works with both young people and adults of all ages from teenage to old age. Finally, he is a strong believer in the importance of working ethically and as such he actively follows the BACP’s ethical framework.
