Siobhan Cooper MBACP
As a qualified and experienced counsellor I offer a friendly, confidential and non-judgemental approach allowing you the space to explore your feelings in a supportive environment.
I believe the setting for counselling is really important and should feel comfortable and welcoming. The hour long sessions are held in a quiet, relaxed and private room allowing you to feel comfortable sharing any struggles with me.
I work as a person-centred counsellor and adhere to the core conditions of the approach as a basis for therapy, but I also believe in exploring other areas of therapy where I feel this would be helpful for you. I also have training and experience in CBT, couples therapy and more recently have begun training in TA therapy.
I have worked with individuals and couples facing different troubles and welcome clients whatever the struggle may be. From feelings of anxiety and depression to problems in your relationship.
Each person or couple has an individual way of experiencing his or her own difficulties and counselling can be the first step in making sense of things. I believe that, as a starting point the person-centred approach provides the best and safest environment for change.
Finding the right therapist for you is key to the success of counselling, so I am happy to answer any questions you may have Via email or on the phone prior to our first meeting.
I am a qualified supervisor and oversee the work of other qualified counsellors as well as students.
"When someone really hears you without passing judgment on you, without taking responsibility for you, without trying to mold you, it feels damn good." Carl Rogers
