Charlotte Van-Lint Registered MBACP. PGDip Integrative Psychotherapy
Are you currently faced with a personal difficulty , crisis or life challenge ?
Most people seek out counselling or psychotherapy when they experience some sort of discomfort , feel unsure about the way forward or are simply going through significant change or transition in their life . Talking therapy can offer individuals a space to process their thoughts , feelings and emotions.This can enable and empower you to begin to understand and make sense of your own experiences motivations and needs.
Sometimes people need support to enable them to break ingrained patterns and habits and self limiting beliefs. Others may need to be listened to, valued seen and heard . I adopt a holistic approach in my work and integrate a range of methods and skills to enable you to discover your path to psychological wellbeing in a safe, confidential and comfortable place where the emphasis is on YOU.
