About Me

With over twenty years experience I offer the support, guidance and skills needed to assist others in facing and overcoming the difficulties and struggles inevitable in our lives.  I view counselling as a journey; walking with others in exploring sources of the emotional pain and suffering that is way too common for so many, and as important, guiding them in applying practical skills and techniques that will enable recovery and moving toward the potential they may have lost sight of.   Counselling is about renewing hope that healing is possible and that better days are coming.

I believe each counselling session should include a Person Centered approach which emphasizes the vital importance of unconditional acceptance and deep empathy as the foundation in creating a safe and open environment for you to explore your concerns and struggles. I also am a strong believer in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which will help you to identify and challenge unproductive patterns of behavior and unhelpful thinking that can perpetuate your struggles and stressors and then assist you in learning and applying practical skills and techniques that will enable you to move toward healing and wholeness. I also like to use Schema Based Therapy which will explore sources of your unhealthy core beliefs that may have affected how you define yourself and how this may be affecting the various relationships in your life.

My experience includes working with children and teens with behavioral and emotional difficulties, leading drug court and community sentencing programs for those referred by the courts,  facilitating a program for domestic violence perpetrators. I served as a clinical director of a private counselling agency in Oklahoma. More recently I worked in a hospital setting on the acute adolescent unit and most recently I was working with adults in an intensive outpatient day treatment.  

I was Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Oklahoma, which is a qualification required to practice as a counsellor with each state overseeing the professional standards. Now, having recently moved the UK, I am a registered member of British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP).

Written by V.I. on Jan 23, 2022 after therapy with Charlie for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Charlie is extremely helpful and supportive. Listens really well to problems to understand them further, and provides practical exercises to help combat. He is honest and gives great advice. Would recommend
