Linda Tucker FdSc Counselling, Registered MBACP
When we decide to come for counselling, it can feel rather scary but it can also be considered as the beginning of our own journey of self discovery and healing.
During our lives we can encounter many challenges and struggles due to a variety of reasons. These could include relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, loss, bereavement or any significant life changes which can leave us feeling overwhelmed, anxious and depressed, often giving us a sense of being stuck and unable to cope.
I can offer a warm, down to earth approach, as well as providing a safe, confidential and supportive space for us to explore and work through your experiences, as well as any areas of your life that are troubling you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified and experienced integrative counsellor. This meaning I draw from five different modalities, which can be tailored to meet each individual's specific needs. Whatever your concerns are, I will be alongside you, working at your pace. I take a non-directive approach but am happy to work with any goals you may wish to achieve through your counselling. I address what is current for you in the here and now, as well as looking at past experiences that may have impacted your ability to cope and function day to day.
It is the collaborative relationship between the counsellor and client that is the key factor to enabling personal growth and change to occur for a client.
