Philippa Standley MBACP (Accred)
I am an experienced counsellor, accredited by the BACP, working in private practice in the Wadhurst area.
I have 10 years experience working with a wide range of clients. I believe that talking through difficulties with a trained professional in a safe, non judgemental and confidential place is helpful. I offer a mix of support and gentle challenge and by working together, aim to encourage you to find a way forward by considering your options and own potential.
My approach is person-centred, believing that my clients are the experts in their own lives and that with the right support and encouragement have the capacity to change.
Additionally I incorporate CBT techniques in order to help focus on specific problems, especially in short-term work.
