Delrene Walker MA, PgDip, MBACP
There are times in our lives when we need help - a listenng ear perhaps? from someone who can support you through some of the challenges that life throws at us all from time to time.
Yet, it's often during these times -when we are sad, distressed or maybe confused, that asking for help can be so hard.
However, the decision to pick up that phone and seek professional counselling could prove to be the beginning of a life changing journey for you.
I am an integrative counsellor/psychotherapist, who draws from a range of counselling techniques and traditions in order to ensure that my clients benefit from an approach that is designed to meet their individual needs.
As a member of the BACP, I abide by its code of ethics. Hence, someone using my service for the first time can expect to find a confidential, safe, non judgemental space, where they can explore those thoughts and feelings that have been causing them emotional pain, confusion or difficulty.
I work closely with each individual to support them in the task of identifying areas of their lives that they would like to see changed. Together we then explore options and choices. I support the individual to formulate goals, and decide on a therapeutic plan to guide them on their journey to greater wellbeing.
My counselling experience has been mainly focused in the following areas: Stress, anger management, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, identity/cultural issues, substance misuse and general mental health issues.
I have always worked with a diverse client group, and therefore would like to extend a particular welcome, to those of you who may be struggling with issues relating to difference and/or identity.

Person Centred Therapy, CBT, Solution Focused Approaches.
