Beccy Stremes Registered MBACP
With ten years experience of counselling, I use a blend of tools from different counselling approaches, so that I can provide you with a unique, individually tailored service that is best suited for your needs. I work with individuals and adults, and am available in the daytime and evenings up to 9pm.
I offer a safe comfortable confidential space for you to explore issues that are affecting you in your life. The relationship we build is based upon trust, genuineness and the ability for me to explore your world from your eyes. This then enables me to understand exactly how things are for you, and from that point, we can work together to focus on the areas that you are wanting to change in your life, or the areas that are causing worry and anxiety. I work in a non judgemental way, which means that my own values and beliefs are put aside in order to truly understand and hear yours. I work short term ( up to 6 sessions) or long- term ( open ended) depending on what you decide you need.
I offer Introductory sessions at £45, where we can explore the difficulties you are facing. This is a chance for you to see whether I feel like the right counsellor for you, before you commit to further sessions.
