About me

Brian PugsleyI have long been fascinated by what is ultimately most important to us – our experience of being alive, with all of the joy and happiness, pain and suffering, love and hate. I worked in mental health social work for a few years near the start of my working life, then got distracted with a lengthy spell in music and sound recording. I have since returned to my first passion and trained as a counsellor, and my work has never felt more valuable and rewarding.

My personal exploration around who and what we are continues, and I spend a few weeks every year on retreat studying these questions.

I hold a Diploma in Counselling and am an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), meaning that I subscribe to their code of ethics and that my practice meets their standard for a competent, ethical and independent practitioner. I also hold a Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Skills and a Post Graduate Diploma in Supervision.
