Delce Counselling Services
132A Delce Road
Sometimes in our lives we may be feeling that we are not understood, we may feel alone, isolated and depressed. We may feel afraid to talk about our feelings for fear that we will not be accepted.
Counselling is a safe space for you to talk, without judgment about your feelings, thoughts and any difficulties you may be experiencing. It is a regular space for you to explore what's going on for you.
I believe that when we feel truly heard and accepted and safe to explore aspects of our lives and ourselves free from judgement, we are enabled to feel more understanding and accepting of ourselves and better equipped to make changes in our lives and ourselves and to aim to reach our true potential.
If you have not experienced counselling before you may not know what to expect or what is expected.
During the first session we discuss what it is you are hoping for and what it is I can offer so that you can see if counselling is right for you and my style meets your needs.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I offer one to one, face to face counselling for adults.
I work with both long and short term counselling.The number of sessions available is open to negotiation, you may opt to have a set number of sessions or choose to leave it open.
I offer counselling from a lovely, quiet room in Rochester.

The entrance is the silver gate between Payden's Chemist and the Barbers/Florist.

As a Person Centred Counsellor I believe that we are all very different and that you are the only person who truly knows how you feel, what it is you are thinking and what it is you want.
As a registered member of the BACP ( British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists), my aim is to offer counselling guided by the ethical principles of the BACP and also founded on my theoretical approach which is Person Centred to promote the value in others who may not have been valued or who may not consider themselves to have worth.
Delce Road is easy to find and just off Star Hill, Rochester.
If driving to the address there is ample parking outside the premises and there is free parking for up to two hours.
