Hazel Cawood, Psychotherapist, MA UKCP, BACP
I work relationally, offering a confidential, safe, non-judgemental space to explore difficult feelings and understand underlying patterns in relationships.
I offer regular weekly sessions, working with individuals or couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period. 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 help you to get to know yourself better, what your needs are and how you can have your own and others’ met with more clarity and compassion.
Therapy is a safe and confidential space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours with an empathetic, non-judgmental qualified therapist. Over time therapy can help you see your life from a different perspective, identify changes that could be made, and help you to accept and move on from certain situations or emotional states. Paying attention to the therapy relationship dynamics, through empathic attunement, understanding, meaning-making and co-learning, we can work together towards greater self-understanding, self-acceptance and the freedom to choose the way you want to live your life.

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.
