Wendy Walker MBACP (Registered)
I believe therapy and emotional wellbeing to be an intrinsic aspect of overall health that is often neglected and overlooked and that therapy is perceived as being expensive and available only to the few not the many. Prices are negotiable and I aim to help people from all backgrounds and walks of life.
I provide down to earth therapy whilst maintaining professional boundaries. I have over 15 years of qualified experience of working with individuals and young people who for many various reasons have accessed therapy. I work in a person centre way, meaning I can work with almost anything the client decides to bring. Some examples include working with people experiencing domestic abuse, (I am a qualified facilitator of the Freedom Programme), I have extensive experiencing of working with families who have had intervention from Local Authority Children's Service, I can work with depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, feelings of sadness, helplessness, grief and bereavement.
I am also a qualified Parenting Practitioner and have helped many families overcome challenging times, particularly during adolescence. I am a Schools Counsellor, a Therapeutic Foster Carer, Child and Young Persons Advocate and a Reiki Master.
