Michelle Pointon-Bell Post Graduate Diploma, CBT, Children & Young People, MBACP
I am a qualified and experienced CBT counsellor. I also pull upon the Person Centred approach which is tailored to the individual that I am working with. I work in a way whereas we would look at your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and how they affect the way in which you live your life
I am able to offer a confidential and safe environment to explore how you are feeling and what is happening for you right now in your life.
I work on a short to long term basis, this is all in accordance with the individual needs.
Together I hope we can develop new ways of coping with what you are experiencing.
