Green Shoots Counselling

Therapeutic counselling, walking the journey together


Individual Counselling

Seeking counselling can be difficult and taking the first step even more. I work through challenges with individuals always putting you at the centre of our time together, short or longer term.

Emergency Services

I have a history of working with the blue light family for when the things you see on duty, remain with you off duty. I can work with the challenges of shifts and work flexibly around these.

Online & Telephone

During these times of challenge I will be working with clients using online and telephone means. This means a few adjustments and I am happy to work through your wishes.

Hello! I’m Hal

Qualified Counsellor

Hello. As a BACP registered counsellor, I work one to one with low moods, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and challenges of daily living. Our time together is in a comfortable and confidential space in Orton Longueville in Peterborough.

There are many reasons that people come to counselling, some for a release and to feel better with shorter term work, others want a longer-term deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them. Whatever it is you are looking for, I can assure you of one thing, a non-judgmental and nurturing space to talk and be heard.

If you are coming to terms with a loss, feelings of low moods or times of overwhelm where you simply feel unsure of what is going on for you please call or message me.

MIND Blue Light / Police Wellbeing

I have worked in the public service sector for 25 years where I feel my relational skills have really helped where there have been emotions from low moods to crisis interventions. I have helped with police officers who have seen and experienced all kinds that have stayed with them.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and Insured against Professional Indemnity and Public Liability with Holistic Insurance.

Other training that I have enjoyed and bring to my counselling practice is Mountain Leader Training in 2010 which gives me great experience and understanding of the outdoor environment and allows me to open up a defferent type of atmosphere as a consideration.

I am in current Enhanced DBS until 10 January 2022

My Values & Approach

At the centre of our work is you.

As a qualified and BACP registered person centred counsellor I work with dignity and respect and to your agenda. I am fully insured and work to the BACP ethical framework. I have regular clinical supervision to make sure I am working to your needs and benefit.


"It has been a complete pleasure to have such kindness and help. I thank you from the bottom of my heart"

"The experience has allowed me to begin to value me as a person and for that I am grateful"

"My experience has given me back my future. It has enabled me to have a place to come and talk and just be me and feel I have the tools and own ability to change and adapt to whatever direction my life will take me. I have never felt that way before."

"I will remember this experience for a very long time and not take for granted how I feel today"
