Booker Woodford - Dip. Counsellor And Psychotherapist. BACP Registered
People choose to come to counselling for many reasons. The challenges that we can each experience are, at times, both diverse and universal in their natures. For some, sadness, anxiety and feelings of self-doubt can be overwhelming and hard to shift, while others may simply be aware of a deep uncomfortable emotional experience that, although hard to define, shadows their life unconditionally. Guilt, shame and a critical voice can further compound our suffering and leave us feeling wounded, detached and unable to cope. Sometimes life just rushes by and who we are, and what we want, gets lost along the way.
As a humanistic therapist I place great value on helping you find a stronger, healthier sense of self by offering a non-judgemental and empathic platform to explore and greater understand your emotions. As well as the person centred approach, I integrate techniques from Sandplay, CBT, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt & Existentialism into my therapy.
I offer counselling in a warm, safe and supportive space to explore whatever is causing you distress and help you develop new ways of coping with any unsatisfying or troubling issues in your life. I look forward to hearing from you.
