A. Louise Hodgson MBACP, UKCP Accredited
Whether you're struggling with a life event or ongoing issues, as a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor, studying for my Masters Degree in Psychotherapy, I offer an empathic, confidential, non-judgemental environment to help and support you.
Your therapy sessions will offer time and space for you to offload and be heard, to explore what has brought you into counselling and to help you better understand yourself and what’s happening for you. Your therapy is about you and no one knows you better than you know yourself. I will not advise what you should do but in helping you understand yourself, enable you to make those choices and decisions.
Available in Durham, Pelton and Ryton, our first meeting will be a 50 minute assessment session. This will help us get to know one another, look at what you wish to gain from therapy and your expectations. It also offers the opportunity to decide if I am the right therapist for you. Subsequent sessions are 50 minutes long and usually weekly, though alternatives can be discussed.
Taking the first step into therapy may feel daunting, so if there's anything you want to discuss, just call, text or email me. You can also find more information or arrange an appointment via my website.
"I'm waiting to listen, when you're ready to talk".
