Becky Weir MA, Accred MBACP, Clinical supervisor
We all experience emotional times in our lives and sometimes it is good to have someone to help you sort through some of the difficulties which can occur. Counselling is one way to do this with the support of someone who is not going to judge you and is going to see the situation from your perspective and support you to change things. If your emotional well being is important to you and you want to make some changes in your life, then counselling can be a way to do this.
My specialist areas are working with recent and historic rape and sexual violence and also children from 7 years old upwards.
I am experienced working with depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, bereavement, low self esteem and abuse issues. I also work with children and young people who are experiencing a range of issues.
I am a qualified,accredited counsellor and clinical supervisor and I practice from a Humanistic/Ecclectic approach, which allows me to put the client at the centre of the counselling process, working with you to help you put your emotional well being first.
I provide supervision for those working in the helping professions; including counsellors and psychotherapists, as well as social workers and support workers.

Counselling is a confidential relationship between you and the counsellor in a safe environment. Working with a counsellor can allow you to explore your feelings and give you the tools you will need to understand any difficulties you are experiencing.
I am here to listen and support you, and help you to express your feelings in a healthy and safe setting. I am not here to give advice, give you answers to your problem or tell you what to do. I am here to help you to find your own answers by providing you with a non-judgemental, healthy insight into where you are and where you want to be.
I work from a location close to the town centre which has free parking, it is close to the bus station and a 10 minute walk from the train station.
