Hi, thanks for stopping by. My name is Tristan Watson and I live in Great Bookham, near Leatherhead in Surrey, UK.
I have always loved listening to others, and gained my counselling diploma in 2008 completing my degree in 2011. Since 2009 I have been employed in the addictions field, initially providing counselling and group-work in a residential rehab. After leading a team of counsellors in a specialist service in London helping those with addictions and severe mental health conditions, in 2018 I gained a further qualification in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and now work for the NHS as a team lead in a Surrey based IAPT (Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies) service.
I am a registered member of both the BACP and the BABCP which are professional bodies for counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy.
