Hannah Gardner BA PG(Cert) PG (Dip) MA MBACP
I am a psychotherapist who has a variety of experience working with both adult, adolescents and young children. I have worked for counselling agencies, the prison setting, schools along with working in private practice. I have previously co-ordinated counselling services across several schools in Norfolk, manage my own private practice and offer supervision. At present I divide my time between working with children and families for children's services, private practice,supervision and training.
I strive to offer a safe environment for clients to explore whatever difficulty they may be having in a non judgemental way. I will work with the client from the initial assessment onwards to establish how we might approach working with their particular circumstances in the best possible way to enable a positive result.
Issues that clients have come with include: Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Abuse, Addiction, Anger, Marriage difficulty, Eating disorders and many more.
NB I run my private practice at consulting rooms in both Loddon and Norwich City centre. However for young children and families I will come to your home unless this is not appropriate.
Training, qualifications & experience
Post-Graduate Certificate in Integrative Counselling (BACP Accredited)
Post Graduate-Diploma in Person Centred Counselling (BACP Accredited)
MA in Counselling (BACP Accredited).
I have trained predominantly within the person centred approach though I also have experience and completed further training in the other major approaches such as C.B.T (particularly with young people), Psychodynamic, Existential approaches, Art Therapy and qualifications relating to child and family counselling.
Also, for the past five years I have trained adults to become counsellors from entry level courses through to Post-Graduate level which I feel helps to keep me up to date with theory and generally enhances my practice.
Finally due to working within education and for children's services, I am safeguarding and signs of safety trained.
