Kimberley Howard BSc (Hons) MBACP - Hope Counselling & Psychotherapy
18-22 Church Street
07517 86 86 10
I am a practising Humanistic and Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist, and the head of Hope Counselling and Psychotherapy.
As your therapist I can offer you a friendly, warm and supportive service in our relaxing counselling suite, which is located in the heart of Lutterworths pleasant country town.
I understand there may be apprehensions about seeking help, especially if counselling is a new experience for you, thus I would endeavour to understand your concerns and make your counselling experience a positive one.
Whether you are an individual seeking help, part of a couple or a young person, I will always be respectful and non-judgemental of your individual circumstances and reasons for entering therapy.
Together we can explore your pains, hopes and concerns allowing you to call on and develop your own inner resources to cope with life’s troubles, promoting healing and change for the future, so you can experience life to its full potential.
Counselling can be offered on a short term or long term basis depending on your individual needs and requirements. Counselling will not be continued longer than necessary and regular reviews allow sessions to be goal driven.
Only you can decide whether you wish to try therapy. Just talking to someone confidentially who is not a friend or family member can make all the difference, especially if it is these very people who are at the source of your problems. It can be a great relief to share your worries and fears with someone who acknowledges your feelings and is able to help you discover alternatives, different perspectives and find positive solutions, allowing you to live the life you deserve.
