Louise Hopkins MBACP ( Registered )
I understand that deciding to come to counselling can be a really difficult decision. I offer a free 30 minute telephone session so that you can ask questions and decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
I can work with you to build a relationship based on mutual trust and understanding. Thoughts, feelings and issues can then be shared and explored in a safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment.
I work in a person-centred way, meaning that I work in a way and at a pace that suits you and with whatever you bring to the session. As an integrative therapist, I draw on a range of different theories and ways of working to suit you. You may wish to work on a specific, current issue or have an interest in looking at the past and how that may be impacting on your present and possibly your future - e.g relationship issues, anxiety, bereavement, trauma, redundancy etc.
I can offer short or long term counselling depending on your requirements.
