Sandra Stone. MA. PGrad Dip. MBACP (Accred) Diploma Supervision.
26+ years skilled & highly qualified experience. I work with couples needing couples' counselling & relationship support, offering a very supportive, caring & understanding approach for your well being.
Working sensitively with couples regarding relationship or marriage issues & family problems, & a wide range of emotional & behavioural issues that can happen within relationships, particularly emotional anxiety, an affair, a new baby, employment-related stress, bereavement, loss & traumatic grief, illnesses & cancer, postnatal depression; anger management; low self confidence & esteem, depression,financial & lifestyle issues and anxieties associated with separation & divorce.
Sessions are for one hour, are private & completely confidential and designed to assist quickly in focusing on finding solutions to your relationship issues, concerns or problems.
Flexible appointment times are available as some couples have children or have travel and work commitments. I offer appointments Monday to Friday daytimes and three evenings a week also some Saturday mornings. Call me on 01303 891794 or mobile 0779 900 7108 or email via this site and I will try to see you as quickly as possible..
My work style is described as Integrative - offering the use of several different theoretical approaches to provide wider and very thorough support to individual and partnership needs.
The most difficult part of seeking help and support from an experienced & professionally trained therapist is making the intial contact. So whether you are outgoing, or maybe lack a little confidence and are shy, rest assured together we'll establish a trusting working relationship and discuss things at your own pace, all taking place in a comfortable relaxed environment, which welcomes you both. So why wait? - email or make that 'phone call and together get support & help for your relationship...
