Counsellor in Helston and Online

My personal journey

Counsellor near me Helston Clement West

My name is Clement and the name for my counselling business is Gosowes Counselling with gosowes meaning 'to listen' in the Cornish language. I am a person-centred counsellor and you can work with me on a wide variety of issues, some of which you can see listed on this website.

Every counsellor has their story and it seems a long way back that during my A levels I considered a degree in Psychology but decided instead to go the route of languages and business. This led me into a career in IT based in London, travelling for work to the US, Russia,Ukraine, Kenya, Egypt and Mozambique. This travelling allowed me to see many different cultures and ways of being in or understanding this world. My IT career then led me into contracting in the NHS where I experienced the reality of working there and got to understand the pressures staff were under, even before the tumultuous events of 2020 and beyond.

The stresses and pressures of the life I was leading led me to an interest in holistic living and spirituality, and this resulted in me qualifying as a reflexologist. That introduced me to working with clients and in doing so I realised I wanted to focus on helping people with their inner worlds, what makes them tick, and what happens when that breaks down and how that then heals and they move on with their lives. This then led to me qualifying as a counsellor and setting up Gosowes Counselling.

Outside of counselling my interests include playing the piano and classical guitar, dancing, swimming in the sea, and walks in the countryside especially when ancient monuments or local hostelry are involved. I believe it is important to enjoy life where possible.

I hope that it has been useful for me to share some of my journey with you. I look forward to meeting you in person and invite you to get in touch via the contact form below.

With warm wishes
