Belinda Smith Registered MBACP
Hi, I am a experienced counsellor and my approach in counselling is Person-Centred.
I offer a space & an environment that is centred around and led by you, an environment where I value you as a person in your entirety, and a place where you will feel heard and understood. As a therapist and a personal growth professional I have had over 15 years of experience working with young people and adults in various therapeutic settings. I have worked with people to overcome internal & external barriers and to find answers that helped them to develop in their own unique way. Counselling can help you to make sense of your situation and it can also help you to gain strength and clarity to move forward in life.
Perhaps you are currently struggling with issues related to self-image ? Dealing with a breakdown in your friendships? Or you may be suffering from depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship issues or work-related stress? Maybe you are taking care of others while also balancing work and other commitments, and you need a space to reflect on things? Maybe you would like to work on issues that have left you feeling trapped or unhappy.
No matter what the issues may be, I am committed to effectively offering you the time, space and freedom to explore your plans, thoughts and feelings in a confidential safe way.
Sometimes we just need the space away from everyday life to just make sense of things.
Sometimes we need the space to explore our feelings and gain clarity in order to move forward in life when we feel stuck.
At times we just need someone to listen to us without judgement and actually listen to understand rather than listening to answer or to tell us what to do.
This is when seeing a counsellor can help

How to arrange an initial session?
It is useful to have an initial discussion with me on the phone or via email to discuss your situation in a little more detail. This will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions that you might have about counselling or how I work.
If you then decide that you would like to make an appointment, we can arrange a time for us to meet and we can then discuss how we might move forward together.
