Kevin Coleman – Adult and Youth Counsellor in Buckhurst Hill


 

Youth Counsellor Buckhurst Hill

I am a Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and an integrative counsellor. I use a largely person centred approach to my therapy sessions with a view towards introducing specific therapeutic techniques appropriate to the individual and their circumstances.

Working with adults

Having been sceptical and largely ignorant about the value of counselling and psychotherapy in the past I feel that I am particularly in tune with those seeking help for the first time, or who may have had a negative experience of counselling in the past. As a man who values his own masculinity (I am currently a youth rugby coach) I seek to bring a particular male perspective to the therapeutic process and understand many peoples reluctance to seek help. Both men and women have found my friendly, consistent and committed approach to counselling helpful in exploring their issues and achieving their goals. I believe in working collaboratively with my clients in helping them to find and utilise their inner resources to achieve their goals.

Working with teenagers and young people

As a qualified youth worker with many years of experience I have developed a particular affinity with teenagers and young people and a particular set of skills in working with them. I use gentle humour and common experiences to create a safe space for them to share their issues express their feelings. Having also worked in a number of secondary schools, including recently a Pupil Referral Unit for students with emotional and behavioural difficulties, I have gained a particular insight into how young people currently see their world. Counselling adolescents and young adults is a particular area that is often overlooked outside of certain institutions, but it is one that I am especially enthusiastic to engage in. I have a current enhanced DBS certificate that is available for inspection.
