Ashdon Tsang MBACP
Often we struggle to understand the stresses and complications of life and at times when we do, it can become a bombardment of emotion that we just were not prepared for. Many people find themselves seeking counselling to help them with Anxiety and Depression, bereavement and more, I offer a genuine and non-judgemental environment and practice Person Centred Integrated Counselling to help move forward from these experiences in a way which still allows an individual autonomy.
Is Counselling for You?
People often ask me who counselling is for and what would bring someone to counselling? My reply is always the same...anyone can attend counselling and for any reason they feel they need to be there. There are no rule books that state a client must be experiencing certain characteristics in order to be eligible. No this is not the case I urge each and every one of you to try counselling. Chances are if you are on this page reading you are already thinking about seeking help, don't be distracted and put it to the back of your mind. It is ok to look after our mental wellbeing and dedicate some time every week to self care, recovery, exploration and any other reason you find yourself seeking a counsellor.
How I Work
The way in which I like to practice counselling is primarily a Person Centred Approach meaning that the client is always the centre of the sessions, I place great importance on making sure my clients feel safe and secure in the confidential relationship and environment. I acknowledge that every client is an individual and therefor each counselling session is treat as such, we work with the material you choose to bring to the session and go at a pace that both me as the counsellor and you the client feel appropriate.
I am an Individual Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists which means I practice to a set of Ethical Guidelines protecting you as a client and myself as the Counsellor.
