Gloria Boshier MBACP (Accred)
Perhaps you are reading this because you are feeling low or anxious. You may have suffered a bereavement, relationship difficulties or a loss of direction in your life. Seeking help is not always easy and it may feel a little daunting to begin with .My counselling practice offers a safe and confidential space where you are able to talk freely and openly about your concerns without feeling judged or criticised. As a qualified counsellor I am able to listen in a way that can help you identify and understand the source of your concerns whilst finding new ways of managing your difficulties.
My way of working is Psychodynamic (experiences from the past unconsciously affect how we feel and behave in the present) Exploring and understanding past experiences can be liberating, giving us the freedom to move forward with the life we would like. I offer short-term Brief Dynamic Therapy ( 6 – 12 sessions) and longer term work to suit individual client needs. I offer week days and some early evening appointments. As a BACP Registered Accredited Counsellor I abide by the BACP code of ethics for good practice.

I believe that finding a counsellor that you are comfortable working with is vital to the process and outcome of your counselling. For this reason I offer an initial assessment session (one hour) £25 with no obligation to continue. This gives us both the opportunity to meet and to consider our work together. If we both feel happy to proceed with counselling my fee will be £40 for a 50 minute session.
You can contact me via e-mail or by phone to arrange an initial meeting.
If you need to leave a message on the phone please speak clearly leaving your name and number as well as a suitable time for me to contact you and I will return your call as soon as possible.
