Louise Hopkins MBACP ( Registered )
Hello. Are you looking for change? Do you want to be heard?
I work in a person-centred way, meaning that I work in a way and at a pace that suits you.
As an integrative therapist, I draw on a range of different ways of working.You may want to look at a specific, current issue or perhaps you 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 work with you to build a relationship based on mutual trust. Thoughts, feelings and issues can then be shared and explored in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment.
I can offer flexible short or long term counselling depending on your requirements.
I offer a free 15 minute telephone session so that you can ask questions and decide if I you feel that I am the right counsellor for you.
I am based in Trowbridge with easy access from surrounding towns of Melksham, Westbury and Bradford on Avon.
