Charlotte Deeves MBACP (Accred), MA (Oxon)
I am a fully qualified and accredited counsellor with over 15 years of experience in health, social care and the charitable sector. For the past 8 years I have been employed in both adult and children's hospices, specialising in the provision of counselling to those experiencing complex health needs, bereavement and loss.
Of course I also work with many issues associated with loss including anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, trauma, low self esteem and stress.
I provide warmth, empathy, encouragement and acceptance to help you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
I use both person-centred and psychodynamic approaches to enable you to identify the challenges you are facing and to support you in finding your own unique path through them. I may help you to explore the past to establish how this might be influencing the present.
If you would like a free, no obligation telephone consultation, or have any questions, please contact me.
