Arcus Partners

We recognise that not everyone will meet the criteria of our low cost counselling service, however, here we provide you with carefully hand-picked and vetted counsellors who have all agreed to provide their services, as partners of Arcus at the capped rate of £25 per session:

Andrew Cull, FdA, Cert Sup, MNCS Accred.

I am a qualified therapist, specialising in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. I continue to progress my training in relevant areas to keep me up to date, fresh and relevant. I also hold full insurance for my practice and I am DBS checked to enhanced level. My main areas that I work with are LGBT+ Issues; Anxiety, Depression, Self Harm, Suicidal Behaviour however Cognitive Behaviour Therapy can be used for a wide range of problems, if you are not sure, contact me and we can discuss this. I like to keep therapy informal so offer sessions that are scheduled around you. I believe that therapy is a necessity not a luxury! As I work from home I am very flexible as to when I can see clients; this means that I can see people out of hours and from any area in the UK as I use remote services such as video links and phone to speak to clients.

Based in Darlington, County Durham, I currently offer counselling sessions online or by telephone, therefore appointments can be booked flexibly and I work with clients from anywhere in the UK.
