Beverley Woodhead. Dip.Counselling, Reg.MBACP
I am a fully qualified Counsellor and a registered member of the BACP. I offer a professional and confidential service to support you in overcoming difficulties you may be experiencing in life. There may be many reasons why you feel you need to access some extra help other than talking to family and friends, Counselling will provide time and space for you to be listened to when you need it most.
Asking for help isn't easy, experiencing feelings and thoughts you can't understand can be overwhelming. I will provide a safe, supportive and confidential environment for you to talk through these difficulties. I offer a warm, non-judgemental ethical space working alongside you to identify and focus on your concerns moving towards understanding, acceptance and a changed outlook on life.
