Mary Nelson Counsellor/Supervisor,Reg.MBACP/Stress Consultant/Hypnotherapist
Black Lion Business Centre
41 Middle Hillgate
I have over 16 years experience as a qualified Counsellor. I also qualified as a Counselling Supervisor, Hypnotherapist, and Stress Management Consultant.
I have a comfortable private consulting room in the centre of Stockport, with disabled / wheel chair access, and toilet.
My firm belief is that not one type of theoretical approach fits everyone so I use models such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person Centred Therapy, Stress Management, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Hypnotherapy, and Creative Therapies.
Confidentiality is at the forefront of my work and I work within the B.A.C.P.'s code of ethics and policies at all times. I regularly review current research, developments and undertake training courses to constantly update my knowledge and skills.
I run a private practice from the centre of Stockport in easy walking distance from the bus and train stations. It is situated near Stockport Townhall. If needed there are a number of car parks nearby.
I offer Anger or Stress Management, Relaxation and Hypnotherapy, also Sand Therapy and Creative Therapy when needed which helps reduce the symptoms of Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Phobias and Stress. I teach techniques for you to use whenever you need them, enabling you to take control of your own life.
Please feel free to contact me, or view my website for more details.
