Mandy Dadswell BSc (Hon). MBACP
Sometimes things can get in the way of life.... it could be work, relationships, money issues .. the list can be endless and problems can seem really daunting. You can feel as though no one understands you or perhaps when you try to talk to people they simply don't seem to listen. I can offer a unique, confidential service that is very professional yet compassionate to your needs. I will help you to get back on the right track and to be able to manage life much better.

Accredited Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists
I am a trained and experienced counsellor and I work with children, young people and adults. I also work with couples who are struggling with their relationships.
Relationship problems, low self esteem, anxiety, depression, anger, and guilt are amongst many of the issues I work with.
I have worked within a wide range of settings that include: supporting people through long term illness and bereavement in both the private and public sector. I have experience in supporting physical and mental illness as a result of trauma. Some of my work has been in helping with addictions and self harming issues. I can offer life coaching and management skills.
I also work with families who feel as though their communication skills are breaking down or that being together is sometimes quite difficult.
I attend regular development groups and on going training sessions which enhance my work and enables me to keep up with regulations and policies. I am frequently involved in support groups for young people and adults wishing to improve their sense of well being. I am accredited with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists which involves continuous engagement in new ideas and in improving my working knowledge.
I am also currently undergoing further training in a Masters degree in Psychotherapy with adults, children and adolescents.
