Meet ULIP Counsellor, Christopher Butler:
I became a full-time worker with Relate in 1989, was co-author of their guide to couple counselling and also completed an MA in Management at Greenwich Business school. From being a senior officer with Relate, I moved to be Head of Student Counselling at Royal Holloway in 1995, and then after several year became the Head of all the Student Wellbeing and Advisory Services where I made a particular specialism of supporting students with mental health conditions.
At that time Royal Holloway was ULIP’s link College and so we were involved in helping you set up a reliable student counselling service in the aftermath of the Paris terrorist incidents in 2015 and I have travelled over and counselled ULIP students ever since.
I am a Senior Accredited Counsellor and am conversant with all the different current methodologies. I find most students, even if they are currently troubled, have a strong sense of what they wish to achieve and who they want to be, so I favour a student-centred approach to help them clarify their own preferred way forward and address the self-doubts which are holding them back. I find cognitive behaviour techniques are useful to address anxious and troubling thoughts and to address procrastination and perfectionism.
