Heather Guy BA (Hons) Counselling & BACP approved full member
Welcome to my profile and well done for taking that brave, first initial step and reaching out for support. I have been told on numerous occasions that I put people at ease and make them feel welcome. Life is never plain sailing and it can be pretty tough at times.
You may struggle with relationships, feel depressed or suffer from anxiety, you maybe struggling after a bereavement or just don't feel yourself. Whatever your situation, you maybe need a little extra help to sort out your thoughts and feelings from someone who is impartial to your situation and will listen without judging and can remain neutral, then I can help you.
As your counsellor, I will provide a safe and confidential space to enable you to explore your thoughts and feelings. I will be with you every step of the way as you begin to understand and perhaps accept what is going on for you, and finding the courage to move on past your issues and make changes to move you forward into a better place.
As well as being friendly and a supportive practitioner, I work ethically within the BACP guidelines and I will always have your best interests at the heart of all therapy sessions. I work in an integrative way as every client is unique, I adapt my therapy style that will best suit the client.
