Creative Counselling Services
Welcome to our profile and well done for taking that brave, first initial step and reaching out for support.
You maybe struggling with relationships, feel depressed or suffer from anxiety, or you maybe struggling with a bereavement or just don't feel yourself.
As your counsellor, we will provide a safe and confidential space to enable you to explore your thoughts and feelings. We can either work with you in a person centred way or use a technique which we specialise in known as drawing and talking therapy. This technique works with the unconscious mind in a creative way. This technique is ideal for when you have difficulty in putting words to your thoughts & feelings. It is especially good for children who have additional needs, e.g. ASD, OCD, anxiety and other issues.
As well as being friendly and a supportive practitioners, we work ethically within the BACP guidelines and we will always have your best interests at the heart of all therapy sessions. We both work in an integrative way as every client is unique, We adapt our therapy style to what will best suit the client.
