I get the shadow ...
Hello and welcome to this page- I imagine it must have been quite a journey to get to this point - so I would just like to welcome you before I say anything about me.
The session is about you, the focus is on you, but sometimes its hard to know what you mean, or how to say what you feel. My particular skill is in getting that and getting you to know what it is you feel and how to be able to articulate it; sometimes for the first time to yourself, and then maybe if you need to, to someone else.
I am an experienced and qualified Counsellor with over 3000 hours of individual 1:1 counselling experience. I work with both men and women and I currently work in a woman's centre, in private practice and on a national counselling helpline.
I was previously a health professional( physiotherapist) both within the NHs and in private practice for 25 years plus.
I currently manage groups around self awareness and well-being in Halifax and work with individual Counselling clients in Hebden Bridge and Halifax town centre.
I work with integrity, in a very open and honest way with whatever issues you would like to bring.
