ello and thank you for visiting my web site. 

In these extremely challenging times……

It’s even more important that we feel connected. Although we’ve been advised to keep a safe physical distance from one another it’s still possible to be in touch by other means; we are all having to adapt to a new normal. That’s why I now offer therapy by telephone and video. If this is something you think you might be interested in, please call me for a brief, no obligation chat.


Are you feeling anxious, stressed, depressed or angry?

Are you going through a difficult patch, or is there a persistent issue that is stopping you from getting the most from life?

Perhaps there isn't even a 'problem' and you would simply like to work on your personal development.

I can offer you friendly, impartial and professional support to help you to achieve your goals. I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and an Accredited and Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work with individuals from a range of backgrounds presenting with a variety of difficulties including abuse, anger management, eating disorders, obesity and weight concerns, depression, relationship issues and bereavement. My practice is in Hornchurch, not far from Hornchurch Underground station and within easy reach of the M25. There is ample free parking.

My approach to therapy is based on the belief that with empathic, impartial and professional support, people can find their own solutions to their problems. Owning the solution is the key to a successful and sustainable outcome.

 Moreover, as research shows there is a strong link between a successful therapeutic outcome and the relationship between client and therapist, it is important that you feel comfortable working with me, and I with you. My advice to prospective clients therefore is: come along for an initial meeting and see how it feels. This will also give me the opportunity to assess how I can help; if I believe there are other more appropriate forms of help, I will tell you. If you are unsure about whether counselling is right for you, or you have any questions that are not answered elsewhere on my website, please feel free to call me on 07913 007 01; or send me an email to enquiries@michaelrousecounselling.co.uk
