Mandy Hedges MBACP. Registered, MNCS Accred.
Welcome, If you are looking for a warm, caring, professional counsellor, then you are in the right place.
Looking for a counsellor can be a difficult process, who do you trust with your feelings and concern's?. I work with the Person Centred approach finding the right counsellor is important, building our relationship is fundamental to the counselling process and for you to get the most out of counselling. I can offer you a safe, non judgmental, confidential space to explore issues or concerns that may be causing continue unease or distress.
Counselling is not about giving advice, but by working together you will gain support for emotional issues and problems.
Many people seek counselling all for different reasons, usually because they want to feel better and it's normal for us to sometimes have issues and concerns in our daily lives, but there are times when we need outside help to resolve them.
I am fully qualified, compassionate counsellor with over 700 face to face client hours. I hold full insurance and an enhanced DBS.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and on the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists adhere to their ethical framework. Details can be found at www.bacp.co.uk
I am also an accredited member of The National Counselling Society. (MSCS Accred)www.nationalcounsellingsociety.org
If you decide to contact me we can arrange your first appointment, sometimes its useful to have an initial telephone chat, so please feel free to contact me.
In the first session, we go over the nature of counselling and confidentiality and I can answer any question you may have. We can then begin to explore your concerns and how we can best work together.
If all goes well and your happy we can then book further sessions, which will be 50 minutes long and usually once a week.
I see clients in my private consulting room in Stanton, between Bury St Edmunds and Diss, Where confidentiality is assured and there is free private parking.
I also see clients at The Self Centre, Bury St Edmunds.
