Andrew is a fully qualified therapeutic counsellor/psychotherapist and the founder of Talking Spaces Counselling.
“My speciality and passion is working with men’s mental health. In my clinical work I often come across men who have previously tried counselling in good faith, only to find that they did not receive appropriate, respectful or useful help and support.
In person sessions take place at our office in Warrior Park, Seaton Carew, Hartlepool.
11.00 – 19.00
Andrew creates a warm and empathic environment which enabled me to feel safe when working through challenging emotions. Being the only male counsellor in Hartlepool so far, he offers an authentic space for people to figure out their thoughts and feelings without judgment or opinions.
Andy has really helped me understand and process my feelings. I feel like it’s a safe space to be honest about how I feel and that he will challenge my perception of events where necessary. I would highly recommend Andy
