Willis is a senior accredited counsellor, registered with BACP based at Priory Hospital Hayes, with 25 years post-qualifying, supervised practice enables him to work children and adults and has been with Priory Group since August 2021. My work is informed by training in specific approaches and concepts to assist clients in making sense of their thoughts and feelings. Sometimes, thoughts and feelings may be difficult to put into words, so I use creative-expressive techniques to support clients to gain understanding and / or change.
Willis has 30 years background in health and social care settings with clients affected by bereavement, sexual abuse and identity issues. I recognise the uniqueness of each clients’ experience. My responses are relationship-based and from a position of respect for clients as individuals.
