Della Cross BA (HONS), MBACP Depression, Anxiety and Relationship Specialist.
It can seem like the hardest thing to do to access counselling, but it can be life changing if you take that first step in contacting me. I help clients with issues such as suicide ideation, stress, low self-esteem, panic disorder, anxiety including generalised anxiety disorder, feeling sad and phobias. I have helped many clients in getting back to work on the EAP (employee assistance programme). I work with families, couples and individuals regarding relationship issues, family issues, affairs and betrayals, separation and divorce and also bereavement.
I also work with young people 16 and above with issues including life changes, gender identity, self-harm and relationship issues. I am passionate about the benefits of counselling and the positive changes that good therapy triggers. I use an Integrative approach which means incorporating many years of training and experience in psychodynamic, person-centred, systemic, C.B.T. and solution focused modalities to bring about change.
I offer a non-judgmental and confidential service. I am a fully qualified and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and maintain a high standard of professionalism by complying with the ethical framework and codes of conducts.
Many of my clients had no experience of counselling and had no idea what to expect. Being comfortable with your counsellor is probably the most important thing that will allow you to explore the connections between your thoughts and feelings and move forward from feeling stuck or isolated, or going around in circles.
I mainly see clients in Shepshed near Loughborough. It has easy access with ample free parking and accessible via public transport. I see clients on a weekly basis, times and days to suit you. I do not specify a minimum amount of sessions, you decide if you want to return. I also see clients in Coalville should that area be preferable and closer to you. My Coalville venue has wheelchair access. I am committed to offering a service to all where possible and try to offer inclusive therapy. I have some appointments during the daytime where I offer concessions. Please contact me for further information.
