Sandra Dodds (Dip.Couns) Integrative Counsellor
I am an integratively trained counsellor, with experience of Person Centred, CBT and Psychodynamic approaches. This means that I am able to personalise the style of counselling to suit the individual needs of the client. I offer a professional, non-judgemental, confidential service for clients who need a safe, contained place and dedicated time to work through their issues, difficulties and conflicts.
For whatever reason you have turned to counselling, I am here to listen and to support, to explore with you your issues and options, and to help you find a way forward.
Starting Counselling can be scary and often people find it difficult to take the plunge. A good way to find out whether counselling feels right for you is to call or Email me to set up an initial session. At this session we will talk about what you want to get out of counselling. Then, if you are happy to continue, we will set up a 2nd session and arrange to see you either weekly or fortnightly, depending on your availability and preference.
I work from an easily accessible private room in Leigh-On-Sea.
I am an Individual member of the BACP and work to their ethical framework. I hold professional indemnity insurance and I am CRB checked.
