A. Louise Hodgson MBACP
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 your issues. Your therapy sessions will provide a 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 or suggest 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 which will help me get to know you and whether I feel I am the right person to work with your needs. It also provides you with the opportunity to find out how I work and for you to decide if you would like to work with me. We will discuss what you wish to gain from therapy, your expectations and what is realistically achievable.
Subsequent sessions are 50 minutes long and usually at the same time and day each week, though alternatives can be discussed.
Please feel free to give me a call, drop me an email or visit my website if you would like more information or to arrange an appointment.
