Andrew Noon is an Integrative Relational Counsellor and a member of BACP. He qualified with a postgraduate Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Integrative Humanistic Counselling and a degree in Medical Sciences.
Being an integrative counsellor means Andrew draws on a range of therapeutic approaches, but most importantly he work to develop an empathic, trusting relationship that helps you to a deeper understanding of what makes you tick. This is at the heart of working relationally.
Andrew loves working with people of all ages to help them overcome feelings such as anxiety, depression and that nagging sense of pointlessness which dogs so many of us.
For Andrew, the quality of the therapeutic relationship is the key to success. He will work with you to explore the way you think, feel, sense and perceive the world. You will sit as equals and he will offer empathy, support and, if it will be helpful, challenge. Most of all, he will listen to you.
Andrew has worked with people with a range of issues including bereavement, depression, anxiety, anger, sexual identity, grief and loss, childhood abuse and neglect, long term physical conditions and illnesses (and the impact on carers) and suicide attempts. He has also worked supporting people with workplace issues (including bullying, harassment and redundancy). He has a particular interest in working with clients dealing with the impact of specific learning difficulties (Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD etc.)
Andrew has vast experience of working with teenagers and young people and has spent more than 25 years in the education sector. He has worked with clients studying in schools and colleges and the staff who support and teach them.
