About Chris O’Malley Counselling and Psychotherapy
I’m a highly-qualified and widely-experienced psychotherapist, accredited counsellor and supervisor with over 13 years experience. I’ve worked privately, for the NHS and for a University. I offer a professional, friendly, safe and effective service. I offer long and short-term therapy and personal development work to individuals and to couples. I work with all issues that arise in the course of life, from low self-esteem, anger-management, bereavement/loss or behavioural/ relationship issues to anxiety/depression or specific disorders.
My holistic Gestalt approach means that I welcome you in your wholeness; your thoughts, emotions, sexuality and spirituality. With my ability to listen at depth, my sensitivity to feelings, cultural differences and individual preferences, my aim is to help you in developing enough support and insight and to find and make the choices that, on your own, have been elusive or impossible.
