Michael Strang follows an integrative but fundamentally person-centred approach to counselling and therapy, based on a deep respect for each client’s individuality and a considered belief in their own natural potential to understand themselves and achieve whatever emotional change they seek. He provides a welcoming and supportive environment, free from judgement or dictated solutions, with the client’s needs and interests at its heart.
Michael spent over twenty years in the corporate workplace before becoming a counsellor. He is familiar with many of the pressures of the modern world and the difficulties we often face reconciling our inner needs with the demands of a busy, stressful life. Sometimes it’s difficult to know where to turn and how to begin when we’re looking for change. His experience as a therapist and his time working with the Samaritans has taught him how easily we can lose ourselves and struggle to cope, and how important it is to find a person or place where we can speak openly and be truly heard. This is what he seeks to provide at The Awareness Centre: a safe environment where clients can share whatever they wish to share, and reconnect with the kind of person they wish to be.
Michael is a BACP-registered counsellor and psychotherapist seeing private clients on an open-ended basis at The Awareness Centre in Clapham.
