What a really good question; who am I and just as important what makes me. .. me?

Well, my name is Phil and like all people I have had many different experiences in my life and these experiences have made me who I am today. 

I live in Eastbourne, with my partner, and have been here for the last 16 years.

I am a qualified counsellor and have experience in a variety of areas including

‘Substance misuse (drugs and Alcohol), Bereavement and  sexual/emotional abuse.

As I talked about at the top of the page, I feel that the word ‘experience’ is so

important; a positive one can make me feel good and a negative one not so

good. However, my belief is, whether it is positive or negative, I can

potentially learn from both; in other words ‘life’ is about experience and it’s just what we do with each one that defines who we are.
