Christina Broadbent (BA(Hons), Dip.Couns, MBACP)
Are you feeling overwhelmed and like you need some support right now? It may be something from the past that still hangs over you or a difficult current situation you are working. Whatever you are going through then counselling is a great way of moving forward in the situation.
I offer face to face appointments for adult individuals and couples in my lovely consulting rooms in Warrington and Northwich. I also have sessions on-line using Instant Messaging and email. Sessions are normally once a week and last for a 'clinical hour' which is around 50 mins long for individual sessions and 50 or 80 mins for couples work.
I am able to adapt this to suit your needs including providing sessions more frequently or for longer if you feel this is what you need.
The therapy I work with is called Person-Centred counselling. It is client led which means we only talk about what you wish to bring to each session and at your own pace. I really believe in the importance of creating a safe space for you to feel really comfortable in. I realise that many clients arrive unsure of what to expect and perhaps a little nervous and I take time to let us get to know each other and to work with you to find the way forward that is uniquely best for you.
I am BACP registered, Insured and fully qualified as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist and have worked with clients aged from 18 to 82.
Clients come to me with such a wide range of issues including:
- Anxiety including generalised anxiety disorder
- Depression - From sadness to Depressive Syndrome
- Relationship issues - Including Affairs, divorce and communication issues
- Loss & bereavement
- Eating disorders - including anorexia, bulimia and emotional eating
- Sexuality - including gender
- Family issues
- Work related stress.
Whatever you are dealing with right now, I would be happy to sit with you and help you to work though it, always putting your needs first.
Please get in touch today.

Whilst many clients seem to come to me at a point of crisis in their life, I believe that counselling can be used as a health check for your life.
Are you feeling stuck in a rut? Bored? Feeling like there should be more to life?
Maybe there is and therapy can help you to reach your full potential!
I also offer a Corporate service to support employees and employers. Appointments can be made in my consulting room or on site. Please get in contact to discuss this with me further.
