A. Louise Hodgson MBACP
If you are finding life difficult at present, you are certainly not alone. Whether you're dealing with a life event or ongoing issues, you don't have to struggle on. As a qualified counsellor, studying for my Masters Degree in Psychotherapy, I offer an empathic, confidential, non-judgemental environment to help and support you through what you're experiencing.
Your therapy sessions will offer time and space for you to be yourself, to offload and be heard, to explore what has brought you into counselling and to help you better understand yourself and what’s happening for you. Your therapy is about you and no one knows you better than you know yourself. I will not advise what you should do but in helping you understand yourself, enable you to make those choices and decisions.
Available in Durham, Pelton and Hexham, our first meeting will be a 50 minute assessment session. This will help us get to know one another, look at what you wish to gain from therapy, your expectations and what is realistically achievable. It also offers the opportunity to decide if I am the right therapist for you.
Subsequent sessions are 50 minutes long and usually at the same time and day each week, though alternatives can be discussed.
Taking the first step into therapy can feel daunting, so if there's anything you want to discuss, just call, text or email me. You can also find more information or arrange an appointment via my website.
"I'm waiting to listen, when you're ready to talk".
