Dr Rosemary Lodge
I have 15 years' experience seeing clients for a wide range of issues. I work existentially which means that I don't label, diagnose or pathologise your experiences. Life is challenging for all of us and I help clients discover their own meanings and resources. You are the expert on your life and you already have within you everything you need to face your current challenges.
I have also been a counselling psychology trainer for nearly 10 years, teaching existential theory and practice, and this keeps my knowledge, skills and experience up to date.
