Audrey Hobson Registered Member (MBACP) Diploma Counselling.
The Park Practice
31 Park Road
Helping People through Challenges of Life, I know how difficult it can be to take that first step.
How I Practice
Helping with difficulties, anxiety, worries and problems, these can be explored and begin to be understood, so change can start to take place and a deeper understanding of your own thoughts, feelings and beliefs can be achieved.
Maybe you are feeling depressed, alone, anxious? Perhaps you’re struggling with low self-esteem or a relationship? It could be that you’re coping with a bereavement and finding that the loss has brought up other difficulties within your life. I offer a safe respectful, confidential space where you can express your feelings without judgement.
I can provide a initial assessment of 30 mins, for £15 this is not a therapy session but gives you the chance to tell me of your concerns / issues and allows you space to ask questions around anything that you may not understand or need clarifying. I would like to gather some information about your present situation, as well as some family history, we can also explore whether counselling is right for you and whether it feels like we can work together on your issues.
Once it is decided we are working together then each session will last for 50 minutes, we would normally meet weekly. We will review the work / issues that we are dealing with at the sixth session, giving us both a chance to assess how the relationship is working out.
I offer both long and short term therapy, and so the number of sessions can be negotiated between us.
