Hazel Cawood, Psychotherapist, MA UKCP, BACP
Therapy can help us to get to know ourselves better, what our needs are and how we can have our own and others’ met with more clarity and compassion.
I offer a safe, confidential, empathic and non-judgemental space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. This can help you to identify changes that could be made, and help you to accept and move on from certain situations or emotional states. I will work with you towards greater self-understanding, self-acceptance and the freedom to choose the way you want to live your life.
We focus on the here and now (what’s happening from moment to moment), working in collaboration, at your pace, and where your interest lies. This can help you to see more clearly what your situation is, how you are a part of it, and find new ways to face the difficulty.
Coming to therapy can be the first step towards change and growth. It can also feel risky and provoke anxiety. I hope to reassure you, whether exploring this for the first time, or whether you have seen a therapist in the past, that it can be a supportive and nourishing experience. Please get in touch to arrange a call to discuss any questions you have.

Getting in touch
If you would like to give it a try please call me on 07402 078 852, or get in touch by email and we can arrange a time to have a chat on the phone so I can answer any other questions you may have and arrange a session.
The initial assessment session will be a bit different to other sessions, allowing us to meet and get to know each other, work through any questions you may have and also discuss your expectations. During the session, I will also ask you about what has brought you to therapy and some other questions to help me identify the most appropriate way for us to work together. Hopefully, by the end of the session, you will have a good sense of if counselling is for you and if you would like to proceed.
