Jenny Hodsdon BSc (Hons) Psychology, Dip in Therapeutic Counselling
Modern life has many challenges and sometimes it can be a struggle. You may be suffering from anxiety, depression or feel that you are finding it hard to make changes or move forwards in your life. If this is how you are currently feeling then counselling may help.
I am a mature person-centred counsellor with a strong commitment to ensuring that my clients feel safe, understood and accepted in our counselling relationship.
In our sessions you will have the space to explore your feelings without fear of feeling judged in any way.
We can work together to enable you to see your problems more clearly and to understand why you feel anxious or depressed. Together we can explore your feelings at a pace set by you. This process leads to greater awareness of why you are feeling this way and it is then possible to find ways to help you move forwards.
I currently offer home visits in the Stockport and Oldham areas. My initial visit is at no cost. I use a sliding scale for session fees taking into account what you can afford to pay.
