Glenda Smith Adv Dip Couns. MBACP
I am an experienced and qualified counsellor. I offer safe, confidential counselling in my own home where you will be warmly accepted.
As well as my private practice I've worked for a local Counselling Service mainly seeing referrals from the NHS and I co-facilitate a group, run by a leading mental health charity, that gives support to people that have been bereaved by Suicide. I am also a trained bereavement counsellor.
There are times in our lives when we feel unable to cope. Sometimes it may seem as though there is no clear way through our troubles.
Talking confidentially to a Counsellor, who is skilled and impartial, in a safe space can give us time to see more clearly what is going on in our lives and to find new solutions.
I believe in accepting people unconditionally and building a genuine and warm relationship where we can work together to help you to find new ways of coping or changing and growing in confidence and self awareness.
