Margaret Powell, MBACP (Accred)
a safe, comfortable and supportive environment in which you can discuss freely any problems or issues;
help with issues including stress, anxiety, depression, relationships, work issues, self-esteem, lack of confidence, self-harm, bereavement and loss;
support and understanding with difficult issues, with the aim of developing ways of coping and overcoming problems.
As well as having considerable experience as a Person-Centred Counsellor, I am also a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is based on scientific principles that research has shown to be effective for a range of problems including; anxiety, depression, phobias, panic and post-traumatic stress disorder. It looks at the links between thoughts (cognitions), feelings and behaviour. In short, the way we think and feel influences the way we behave.
