Andrea Southwell (MBACP, MIFPA)
01282 680947 / 07815434285
I am a qualified person-centred practitioner and holistic therapist. As a person-centred practitioner I do not give advice or tell you what to do or what decisions to make. I will listen in a non-judgmental way, support you to come to your own conclusions and give you the space in which to talk about any problems or issues you may have, in a safe and confidential environment.
I work from home where I have a lovely welcoming therapy room in which you can discuss any worries or problems you may have without the fear of anyone else listening.
If required I also incorporate my holistic experience into the therapy to aid relaxation and help release memories and thoughts that may have been suppressed for periods of time. For example the use of Reiki or Aromatherapy oils can help reduce anxiety and grief during the counselling process.

I am a BACP registered Counsellor, a qualified Holistic Therapist and Reiki Master and am a member of the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists (MIFPA 1997).
I am also a qualified tutor currently teaching Health and Social Care, Counselling and Reiki (CERT ED).
I currently work for two registered charities providing counselling as well as teaching counselling and health and social care at the local college.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I specialise in building a trusting relationship with you, which I feel will enable you to discuss any areas of concern arising in your life.
In conjunction with your counselling, I am also able to offer massage and healing energies to help release inner emotions which can sometimes become trapped deep within the body causing physical pain and symptoms.
I offer competitive hourly rates-
£30.00 per hour for Counselling
£35.00 per hour for Holistic Counselling (includes massage or Reiki)
I also offer great rates for student counsellors needing personal therapy to complement their counselling training courses.
£20 per hour for student counsellors for personal therapy to meet course specifications.
I can recommend Andrea as she is kind and caring which makes her good at what she does. I go for regular treatments and find it a wonderful experience, that treats the whole person. Margaret, Burnley
Andrea is friendly, conscientious, professional, well qualified and always willing to discuss the different treatments she offers and will give feedback when asked. She gives timely reminders for appointments, which I find helpful and more importantly the treatments are beneficial and always leave me feeling totally relaxed and de-stressed.
Andrea is completely non-judgemental and trustworthy in her counselling approach. I feel I can talk about anything that is bothering me at the time. The environment is warm, relaxing, professional and friendly.
