Philippa Standley MBACP (Accred)
I am an experienced BACP Accredited counsellor practising in Wadhurst.
I believe that talking through difficulties with a trained professional in a safe and confidential place is helpful. I am non-judgemental and by working together, offering a mix of support and gentle challenge, aim to encourage clients to find a way forward by considering their options and own potential.
My approach is person-centred, believing that clients are the experts in their own lives and that with the right support and encouragement they have the capacity to change.
Additionally I incorporate CBT techniques in order to help focus on specific problems, especially in short-term work.
