Allan turner

SNCPS ( Senior Accredited Counsellor)

My background

All of my work, with couples and individuals, is "Person-centred". This approach takes an optimistic view of human nature. I intend to work collaboratively with my client (or clients). By offering a deep acceptance of the client, they do not feel a necessity to psychologically defend themselves. They come to understand themselves meaningfully and are less likely to resist change.

I started counselling in 1980 and became a clinical supervisor in 1987. I have been a founder member of and held office in various counselling organisations in the UK and Europe.

My interest has always been in working with couples, which has led me to work with Autistic clients. (I don't use the word "disorder" because I don't view autism as a disorder.) 

For almost 20 years, I was the Clinical Director of Counselling Works Ltd, which was forced out of business by the pandemic. All my work now is online, and my clients come from all over the UK and further afield.
