Andrea Barratt MBACP Accredited Counsellor
People seek counselling for aspects of life which are troubling them. It might be because of depression, anxiety, low mood, a lack of confidence or feeling overwhelmed. Perhaps you are wishing to recover from past traumas or your feeling stuck. Seeking help is a positive and courageous step.
As a BACP Accredited Counsellor, I encourage you to share your thoughts, feelings and past in a safe, confidential environment. In our work together, you can discover your strengths and resources to enable growth and recovery from events which may have brought you to me initially.
Choosing a counsellor that you can trust and feel comfortable with is important. For this reason, I offer a free, no-obligation, 50 minute consultation. My practice is based near the centre of Derby. I provide counselling for adults from 18 years upwards and offer both short and long term therapy depending the outcome you would like to achieve.
Life can be busy and it can be difficult to find time for ourselves. I currently have availability on Thursday afternoons/evenings and on Saturdays. Feel free to phone or email me if you think I can help or you have any questions.
