Denise Askew BSc (Hons) BACP (Accred.) UKCP
Phoenix Counselling Practice
12 Childer Road
My way of work offers a confidential, non-judgmental, relational approach. I work with clients respecting everyone's uniqueness and draw on my accredited training and own life-experience. We work with your (client) goals in mind, through raised awareness, compassion and exploring different perspectives. The past may inform us as to where we are presently and through trust and confidence in self you may see a way forward.
Day and early evening appointments are available. I offer the initial 50 minute session at a lower rate to assess your requirements, it offers a gauge for deciding to work together and an opportunity to clarify details of therapy.
I work with young people 12 yrs plus, adults and couples. Student counsellors and low income, please contact me - rates negotiable.
Please make enquiries via email or by text/phone call - details supplied. Due to the nature of my work, I may not be available on first contact, but I will respond to messages promptly.
