Charity Moss DipHE Psychodynamic Counselling, MBACP
Walton On Thames
I am a qualified and experienced psychodynamic counsellor offering both short and long term counselling. My practice is in a quiet location and offers a safe and welcoming space for you to explore your current difficulties.
There may be many reasons why you might be considering counselling. You may be experiencing a major life event, personal crisis or challenge and may be finding it difficult to work through this on your own. Counselling is useful for anyone who is interested in exploring their inner thoughts and feelings and wishing to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and a greater level of self awareness.
As a therapist I have experience working with adults in community based counselling services in London and Hampshire and have also worked therapeutically with children within a primary school setting.
I have a particular interest in perinatal mental health and have experience working in a postnatal counselling service working with postnatal depression, postnatal PTSD and birth trauma.
I have experience helping people who are struggling with a wide range of difficulties including anxiety, bereavement, depression, low self esteem, infertility, miscarriage, identity and stress.
Prior to training as a counsellor I spent over 10 years working in Human Resources for a number of organisations in the voluntary and higher education sector. I have also worked in a consultative capacity for a number of small charities in the voluntary sector delivering coaching, mentoring, mediation and outplacement support.
If you are feeling anxious, depressed or unable to cope with your present situation and would like to talk to a counsellor, please do get in touch.
