Hi my name is Carl. I’m a fully qualified psychotherapist counsellor based in Wigan at ‘Army community HQ’. Where I counsel veterans suffering from a wide range of traumas such as: anxiety, grief, relationship breakdown, Shame, depression and all the other things that intrude into their lives and reduce its quality. I’m also researching into ‘what the barriers and facilitators are to veterans wanting to access counselling’.
In my earlier life I was a soldier in the Guards and experienced all the fun, pride, exhilaration, fun, comradeship, fun, madness, exasperation, fun, rage, anger, shame and fear. That came with the shilling and made me who I am today.
I get down to the retreat as often as I can and if required when I’m needed, I come because I really enjoy the place and the therapeutic bubble it provides for the veterans that go there, it’s a place were they can rest, rationalise, reset and recharge themselves. When I’m there I offer and give one to one counselling sessions. So if you see me and you wanna chat let me know and I will always make time.
