Michael Strang follows an integrative but fundamentally person-centred approach to counselling, which is 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, led by the client’s agenda, and with the client’s interests at its heart.
Michael spent over twenty years in the corporate workplace before beginning his re-training as 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 where 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, and reconnect with the kind of person they wish to be.
Michael is a person-centred counsellor and a member of the BACP. He works on an open-ended basis within The Awareness Centre’s low-cost counselling service in Clapham. He is currently working towards a Master’s degree in integrative counselling and psychotherapy.
