My name is Daran Mehmet-Wise, I am a qualified Male therapist based in Brentwood, Essex, offering counselling support to adults and young people aged 13 and over.
I became a counsellor after reaching a point in my previous career where I was feeling unfulfilled . I asked myself what I enjoyed doing and the answer was helping others. I had previously done charity work supporting disadvantaged young people in London as well as providing emotional support to family, friends and colleagues throughout my life. So I decided to pursue a career where I could do that professionally and trained as a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor.
I am a firm believer that as people we are all unique and that there can be no one size fits all approach to counselling that will work for everyone. As an integrative counsellor, I am trained to be able to draw upon a range of therapeutic techniques that will best suit your needs.
I have been told by my peers as well as my clients that I provide a calmness in my approach that allows people to feel relaxed and more able to talk about often painful experiences and emotions. Ultimately, I want anyone that I work with to feel empowered through therapy, feeling a greater sense of self acceptance, ability to cope with challenges in their lives and work towards realising their own potential for happiness and fulfilment.
