Andrew Walker, NCS
I am a fully qualified and insured psychotherapist who has several years working on private practice working with individuals, couples and families. I also specialise as a clinical psychotherapist helping those who have suffered abuse and trauma and have experienced the care system. I also work as a coach to help those struggling with a life change.
I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is warm and interactive although I aim to challenge and explore with you. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is based on best fit for you, but generally combines cognitive-behavioural, humanistic and psychodynamic methods.
With this in mind, I will tailor our work and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

Andy is a great listener. He listens with compassion and care and I feel very comfortable expressing my thoughts and feelings. He has also said one or two things which really struck me and made me see things from a different perspective. I feel each week the questions become more profound and deep rather than surface level and that feels good because it feels like going into a deeper part of my feelings. He is very patient and open to hearing everything I have to express. I have already recommended Andy to another friend.
