Ian Hughes Person-Centred and Integrative Therapist MBACP (Reg) Dip. Couns.
1 Fairlawn Road
I work in establishing a supportive and therapeutic relationship, through building trust and within creating a space in which, you the client, can explore and grow. I believe that therapy can be the excavation of ourselves, I feel it is important that you are treated with care, respect and move at a pace with which you are comfortable
I’m a qualified therapist involving Humanistic and integrative counselling. I have professional and personal experience working in and through Anxiety, Chronic or Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Stress, Low Self-Esteem, Depression and various associated issues.
I work both fixed, short, or long term and open ended.
I also offer a discount to those in the NHS and emergency services as well as students that are over 18 years.
I practice in accordance with the BACP ethical framework.
If you feel that it is time to begin or continue with counselling and feel that I would be a good fit for you then you can give me a call or send me an email and we can arrange an initial session. When we meet for the first time it will be an opportunity to get to know each other, we can discuss what it is you would like to bring to therapy and what you would like to achieve. Then if you decide to continue we can agree on a regular weekly slot.
