Hello, my name is Mandy. I am a professional experienced therapist with over 25 years of experience of working with people who have experienced a variety of complex and differing needs.
I have worked for various organisations as a therapist, and set up my private practice over 16 years ago. I continue to provide confidential, professional counselling and therapy to individuals, couples and various organisations.
I offer Individual Counselling and Psychotherapy, Relationship Counselling and outdoors 'Walk and Talk Therapy'
How can I help?
I have a passion for helping people achieve their full potential. Sometimes we get stuck in old behaviours and thinking patterns, this can cause us to feel unable to manage some areas in our lives. Therapy gives people the time and space to recognise this and find ways of changing their own relationship with themselves and others.
I use Transactional Analysis alongside other approaches as I feel this is a helpful theoretical approach that gives people a clearer understanding of themselves and others.
I'm not a therapist who wants to keep somebody in therapy for many years, becoming dependant on the therapeutic relationship. I'm a therapist who encourages people to believe in themselves and develop their own inner therapist that enables them to live the life they choose.
If you feel the idea of the traditional 'sitting in a room with a therapist' a little daunting then maybe 'Walk and Talk Therapy' could be for you. 'Walk and Talk Therapy' offers you the experience of therapy in the outdoors, walking side by side, you setting the pace and connecting with nature and yourself in the open space. The first session is held in the therapy room and subsequent sessions agreed between you and I.
If you know you need to explore something in your life, then please don’t hesitate to contact me for an informal discussion and we can find out if counselling is right for you. I look forward to working with you.
Thank you for reading.
