Hannah de Vall MBACP (Accred) BACP Registered
I am a BACP Registered / Accredited Counsellor with more than 20 years experience working as a therapist. In the past I raised a family and worked as a nurse.
Counselling is an informal discussion sitting comfortably in a safe confidential setting. I see individuals for short or long term counselling using a model that I adapt to your needs as an individual.
If you are experiencing problems in your life talking to a counsellor can be really helpful. It can be hard to ask for help but once the first step is taken there is often a sense of relief that there is somebody who is interested in you, who will be alongside you and support you as you work through your problems.
Maybe your relationship isn't going well or you are feeling depressed and anxious, perhaps you are having difficulty at work. I can talk through your thoughts and feelings with you and work with you to put past and present experiences into a new context.
We are all affected everyday by reactions to events, these are often not only to current events but to similar ones in the past, the resulting thoughts and feelings are then a response to years of familiar experiences. When we understand this, untangle it and find new ways to react and experience what has happened we can move forward in our lives more effectively.
