Integrative Counsellor and Coach
Barry Redman was not always an integrative counsellor and coach, at the beginning of his career, he worked as a sustainability consultant, taking care of our external environment. However, it was during this time that he embarked on his own inner journey, and this inspired him to change his professional direction and retrain to work with clients’ internal environments. (don’t worry, he’s still passionate about both environments though!)
During his own journey, he attended men’s groups, and workshops and attended talks to deepen his understanding of himself and others. He understood the enormous benefits of counselling and self-discovery and wanted to find out more about the workings of the mind and body. In fact, his counselling experience was so transformational that he decided to embark on a Post Graduate Diploma which qualified him as an integrative counsellor and coach. He chose this approach as this training meant he could work with various issues using many well-researched methods to respond to the client’s needs.
He understands that coming to counselling is not always easy, it can be a big step to take, and he knows that it can be challenging at times. However, he appreciates the therapeutic journey and responds sensitively and empathically to clients’ needs.
Barry Redman has experience in working with individuals, couples and groups. He has experience working with clients who are struggling with addiction, anxiety, stress, depression, relationship issues, communication problems and identity issues as well as many other issues.
His counselling style is supportive, encouraging, non-judgemental, empathic, and where needed gently challenging. Barry is happy to work both online and in person.
Barry works in both Buckhurst Hill and Henley-on-Thames.
