If your answer is yes, then counselling can help you.
Whether you are looking for a counsellor in Falmouth, Penzance, Helston, Newquay or Truro, or someone who is just a phone call away, I am able to offer you support.
How can counselling help you with your problems?
Counselling provides you with a safe, confidential space to talk freely about anything you want without feeling judged.
Whether it's talking about feelings, thoughts or problems that are bothering you, counselling is an opportunity to talk to someone who will listen and give you their full attention.
As many people are able to testify, just the experience of talking to the right person can be a powerful therapeutic experience.
"The human soul doesn’t want to be advised or fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed — to be seen, heard, and companioned exactly as it is." (Parker J Palmer)
What if I have concerns about having counselling?
Many people feel the need to talk to someone apart from their friends or family about their problems but they afraid about what counselling involves.
Many people have never had counselling before or have known people who have had bad experiences with therapists.
Their ideas of what counselling or counsellors might be about could be influenced by films they have seen. Most of these are not a portrayal of real life.
Have a look at my Frequently Asked Questions page which will hopefully answer your questions and allay any concerns you might have.
How I Can Help You
My name is Mike Clement and I am a qualified counsellor.
I have been using counselling skills as a therapist and nurse for the past 20 years to help people like you through challenging times.
I am able to relate to my clients by drawing on my own personal experiences of trauma, bereavement and loss.
Apart from being in private practice, I am also a:
I have a particular interest in counselling people experiencing:
I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
I can help you explore your thoughts and feelings and discover your own inner resources to enable you to cope and experience meaningful personal growth.
I work with clients on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.

"I want clients to know that I have wrestled with therapy and with life and will share their journey." (Charles Kramer)
What Counselling Do I Provide?
As a person-centred counsellor, I believe that every human being is unique and has value, and has the inherent potential to change and grow no matter what their circumstances are.
By offering you honesty, empathy and acceptance, I seek to provide you with a safe, non-judgemental space where you can find the courage to explore your own thoughts, feelings and choices.
I will not try to give you solutions to your problems because I believe that you are the most qualified and resourced person to do that.
I challenge you to experience the power of being listened to by someone who honestly cares and seeks to accept you for who you are.
It is a process that has the possibility for you to learn to listen to yourself without fear or judgement, to accept yourself and to find the courage to move towards your true self and become the person you really want to be.
Is Telephone & Online Counselling Effective?
Research has shown that online counselling in the form of phone, video or live text to be as effective as face-to-face meetings with a counsellor. In many instances, it is more effective as clients feel less inhibited and are able to share their feelings easier.
It has many advantages including not having to drive to your therapist and find parking. It can be done anywhere you are comfortable. Telephone counselling sessions offer you the opportunity for privacy and discretion.
There is currently much focus on online counselling as the only available alternative during lockdown. However, online counselling has been used effectively by thousands of people for many years and is increasingly becoming the preferred option for many clients and counsellors.
Instead of waiting for a face-to-face appointment when lockdown restrictions are lifted, I am able to offer you online counselling sessions now.
Where Am I?
My counselling practice is located in Penzance on the beautiful south coast of Cornwall, within easy reach of Helston, Falmouth, Truro and Newquay.
If you are looking for a counsellor in Falmouth, Helston, Truro and Newquay, I can offer you the convenience of permanent online counselling which is proven to be just as effective as face-to-face counselling. This can be by phone, video or live text anywhere in the UK.
