Neil Loffhagen

Counsellor in Bracknell

As a Gender, Sexual and Relationship Therapist, my aim is to help you explore all aspects of your gender, sexuality and relationships.

Being GSRD & LGBTQ+ affirmative, I offer full acceptance of who you are. I will work positively with you and support whatever your gender and sexuality may be. Whatever you bring I feel we will be able to explore together, leading to greater self-acceptance, plus greater personal peace. No issue is considered more important than another. Every area you bring is of unique importance.

My aim is to help you in your journey to discover your potential. I am not here to tell you what to do; that is advice and any change would likely be short-lived. Through self-discovery, a power within can be found which may surprise you and those around you.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

We are each unique, so the way we work together will be unique.

Brian Thorne, a person-centred therapist, said:

"I have discovered since that love devoid of understanding, although it can bring comfort and solace, can never heal."

My offering is unconditional love and acceptance, combined with understanding to help bring healing and thus change. The overall aim is for you to have no need for a therapist or counsellor. Brian Thorne also wrote:

"It is my experience that those who have found healing through relationship with a therapist always discover that they, too, are loveable and capable of loving."

"If therapy has been successful, clients will also have learned how to be their own therapist."

It is as though he listened
and such listening as his enfolds us in silence
in which at last we begin to hear
what we are meant to be.
