Trina Driver. (Dip Couns Dip Life Coach Dip HE BaPa)

About me

I am a Therapeutic Counsellor and Creative Therapist offering a specialist psychological service for women. I have been working therapeutically for thirty years with individuals and groups.
My approach is warm and down to earth. I aim to de-mystify therapy and make it available to women from all walks of life.

I can offer you specialist support with:
Social anxiety and shame
Eating problems
Life transitions   -     and more.

I have an integrative and person-centred approach which means that I use a number of therapeutic techniques in order to best meet your needs.

I will value and respect you as an individual and recognise your potential for change and your capacity to decide what feels right for you.

I am passionate about offering equal opportunities and I gladly welcome diversity. If you have individual needs which make accessing counselling difficult, I will endeavour to meet your requirements.

I adhere strictly to the BACP ethical framework and receive regular supervision from a BACP accredited supervisor.

Please see my website for testimonials and further information.
