My name is Chris Feather. I am a BACP accredited Counsellor and qualified Supervisor and my counselling practice is based in Leicester and rural South Leicestershire.
I started counselling in 2004 and I have been working as a counsellor in Leicester, Market Harborough and surrounding areas ever since . I trained as a Person-Centred Counsellor at South Leicestershire College, Wigston but I also have a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioral Practice which allows me to use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT)techniques in my work practice.
In 2015 I gained a Certificate in Counselling & Psychotherapy Supervision and I am now happy to offer supervision to qualified counsellors.
I aim to providing counselling for the people of Leicester, Wigston, Market Harborough, Corby and surrounding areas in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment. I undertake therapy with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of helping them to enhance their life and to live it more fully.
In my role as a therapist I have helped clients who have experienced many types of difficulties including:
• Childhood abuse
• Anxiety & Panic attacks
• Work related issues
• Low self esteem
I have a special interest in helping people who suffer with anxiety and panic attacks. It is an often hidden, un-talked about problem which can be extremely life limiting. I use a combination of CBT, Psycho-Education and traditional talking therapy to help people get control of their anxiety and/or panic attacks and to explore what is their cause.
My counselling/therapy room is in central Leicester but also within easy reach of Market Harborough, Kibworth, Oadby and Wigston.
It is easily accessible both by public transport and by car. There is car parking on site and also on Victoria Park Road.
I offer early evening appointments on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday as well as Tuesday & Thursday afternoons in Leicester.
Alternatively I see people at my home which is centrally between Kibworth, Market Harborough, Corby and Uppingham on a Tuesday & Thursday morning and Wednesday evening.
I also offer telephone counselling or supervision at a mutually convenient time
I am currently an approved counsellor for the following private health insurers so if you have insurance with any of these companies your policy may cover your counselling. It is always best to check with your own insurer first .
