25 Shurdington Road
I'm a Counsellor based on Shurdington Road, just off the Bath Road in Cheltenham. Working out of a comfortable and relaxing therapy room I offer short or long term therapy. I also work for an online Mental Health website and have worked for a local counselling charity and a substance misuse charity based in Cinderford.
I originally studied Psychology before later specialising in Counselling and becoming an Integrative Counsellor. Essentially this means that I have studied a wide range of counselling approaches and am able to make changes to my approach depending on what the client wants and needs, rather than sticking to one way of working. Do ask if you would like to know more about the approaches I have studied.
I have particular interests in working with depression and addiction although I am happy to work with most presenting issues a client may have. I really do enjoy my work with clients and am always impressed by those who reach out for the support they need to facilitate change in thier lives for the better. I do believe that a strong relationship between counsellor and client is fundamental to providing a safe place for us both to face your difficulties, so much of my work focuses on the relationship between us, as well as the issues you may want to focus on.
I would empower you to get in contact if you feel like this could be useful. I am happy to answer any questions on the phone/by email and I believe that a first appointment should be a place for us to get to know how each other work and decide whether this process is for you. I know that for some approaching a counsellor can be a daunting task, so let me assure you that I do try to make the process as straight forward and stress free as possible.
I look forward to hearing from you,
