Linda Kenward (MBACP) Integrative Counsellor - Evening appointments available
My name is Linda and I specialise work with individuals who are experiencing anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement and those going through difficult life circumstances or changes. I also have specific expertise in counselling those who have experienced trauma or had difficult experiences in the healthcare settings. There are times in our lives when we face challenges such as these, and they can feel overwhelming. Counselling can help to find a way through and support you in those times.
I offer Skype or face-to-face sessions.
I work from a person-centred approach, utilising both Transactional Analysis and Cognitive Behavioural approaches as a Integrative counsellor.I am currently undertaking a doctorate looking at the experiences of clients who have been harmed by healthcare. I am also a member of the UK Psychological Trauma Society.
