Andy Schofield - Changing Places Counselling Services
I offer a safe and confidential space where you can be yourself and explore your feelings, emotions and experiences without being judged. It's not easy to take the step to get help and support with life's challenges however you're not alone. Counselling is a powerful experience that changes lives.
Some of the problems that people bring to counselling can include:
- Low-mood/ Depression
- Feeling stuck or trapped
- Unhappy at work/ undervalued in your role
- Addiction to alcohol/ drugs - you or someone close to you
- Relationship issues
- Culture Shock
I work in an Integrative way, which includes CBT, Psychodynamic and Person Centred Counselling - all seamlessly working together to explore what's happened in your life, your relationships, where you are now and how and where you want to be in the future. You are the priority and you are what matters.
I work in person at the Hawarden Wellness Centre in a peaceful, relaxing and private room. I can also work with you on the phone or online through the use of Zoom if you prefer.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

I've lived and worked abroad and experienced different cultures and ways of life, experiencing first hand how change in environment can be unsettling and how it can impact on daily life and relationships.
