Deborah Dixon, Counsellor, MBACP (Accred)
Counselling is an opportunity to share an experience or emotion which may be interfering with your daily life with a counsellor. This can be a big step for many people. Having a confidential environment which provides a safe setting helps to take the first steps to explore what is affecting you. You may know the reason you wish to attend counselling, such as, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, abuse, low mood, feeling unhappy or bereavement, trauma, however it may be a case that you do not know the reason you feel as you do and wish to explore this, these are just some of the reasons people attend counselling. Life can be full of different challenges which you may or may not have dealt with before, whatever your experience, it is unique to you and sharing this with a trained counsellor can enable you to gain an insight into your concerns and develop ways to deal with them.
I am trained in Person Centred counselling working in a professional, confidential, private, friendly setting. This will provide you the space to be able to talk through what is affecting you and know that you will be listened to and heard. As everyone is an individual, I offer both long and short term counselling work and discuss your needs with you at our first session. I am a registered member of the BACP and follow the ethical framework.
If you require any further information about my service please do not hesitate to contact me via telephone or e-mail.
