Cathy Pritchard MBACP Accred
I am an accredited and registered counsellor with the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and offer counselling for a variety of issues. My particular interest is in helping clients discover self-identity and grow in self-esteem and to help enable clients to move forward to a new stage in life equipped with a stronger sense of who they are.
I am trained in Integrative counselling which means my therapy is adapted to suit the client along with their issues of concern. However I am person-centred in my approach and believe in a continual holistic need for equilibrium between mind, body, spirit and emotion.
I work with imagery in the counselling room only if appropriate or at the client's request to do so. Imagery can be anything from a mark on a piece of paper to working with items in the room that may help to represent or embody feelings and situations. Working with imagery and metaphor is a beneficial and nonthreatening way to relate when words are difficult or not enough.
