Are you struggling to cope with a problem or situation that is causing you distress? Counselling can help restore your well-being and ability to function better.
My name is Hazel and as a counsellor, I seek to help you by providing a safe, non-judgemental space in which to process your thoughts and feelings. I believe the therapeutic relationship is the key to success; I offer a gentle, compassionate approach, listening carefully to gain understanding of your situation, and working together with you to make changes which help you to move on with your life.
I offer both short and long-term work in general counselling, and use different approaches to suit the needs of my clients. I have a particular interest in family issues, relationships, anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement and trauma.
I understand the need for a person seeking counselling to feel comfortable with their counsellor and to know that everything shared is confidential. With that in mind, I offer a free initial session, after which you can decide whether to proceed with counselling.
I was a primary teacher for many years and understand how emotional factors can affect young people’s learning. As a pastoral care worker in my church, I saw at firsthand how various challenging life situations caused distress and affected people’s emotional, psychological and spiritual well-being. This led me to train as a counsellor.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work within their ethical framework.
I work from home in a peaceful location on the outskirts of Huddersfield. Please contact me to arrange a first meeting.
