Garance Delpech - Counselling and Supervision Reg MBCAP Adv Dip Couns
Due to the current crisis with the Coronavirus, some people will experience significant difficulties including anxiety, financial losses, stress, loss of structure and many more practical and psychological issues. During this time, having a safe space to talk through your personal experience of the situation may help alleviate some of the burden you may feel. I am offering sessions by telephone and via online Zoom at a reduced fee of £35.00 for clients having difficulties related to the Coronavirus.
There may be many reasons why we seek the help of a therapist; a specific current problem or crisis, on-going emotional difficulties, a desire to improve oneself and quality of life or many other reasons.
Therapy is a unique experience which can be transformative, and in which you can safely access the true essence of yourself. This may enable you to make the desired changes to heal or enhance your life and wellbeing.
My life experiences have underpinned my choice to become a therapist, it made no sense to do anything else. My therapeutic approach is humanistic/integrative. This means I believe that each individual has the ability to fulfill their potential given the right conditions. I work very closely with the therapeutic relationship and endeavour to create an environment of trust, warmth, non-judgment and connection between us.
As a therapist my role is not to advise you but to facilitate your process in finding your own answers that are right for you.
Many of life's challenges which are seen as "normal" by society actually involve trauma and loss in some degree. These issues left unresolved or at least unexplored can lead to long term depression, anxiety, anger and low self esteem. Although talking about your pain may feel difficult and scary, doing it safely with the right therapist for you, can be of great benefit in many ways.
I hold Professional Liability Insurance and am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice. This means i attend regular supervision and am committed to continual professional development.

I offer a free 20 minute initial telephone consultation for all clients. This is an opportunity for you to tell me a little about why you are seeking counselling, and will enable us both to see how we feel about working together. From there we can discuss further practicalities and I will be able to answer any questions you may have.
After years of different rehabs and therapists during a 20 year battle with addiction, all ending in continuing to repeat the same patterns, I am so grateful that I found Garance.
Garance managed to get through to me like no other therapist could in the past. She is loving, warm, compassionate and kind, with acute intuitiveness, exactly what I needed. she is incredibly perceptive and was able to help me identify key issues in myself that no previous therapist had shone a light on. I had always had an issue with trust and that was not an issue with Garance; she made me feel at ease and I was able to trust her from day one. the therapy I had with Garance was the best I have ever had and I continue to see her at various times when needed.
I am proud to say that i am 4 years clean and sober and Garance has played a huge part in that. if i had to refer anybody to a therapist it would definitely be Garance. i am forever grateful to her for helping me learn to value myself enough to change my whole life for the better.
