Heather Meek MBACP (Registered)
Hello, I'm Heather, an experienced, fully qualified counsellor registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Specialist areas of working are trauma, eating disorders, mental ill health (i.e. anxiety and depression) and Autism.
Reading about me possibly means you are contemplating embarking on counselling? Perhaps life for you right now may not be all that it can be? Feeling stuck, not sure how to improve or move forward in life or your situation? Counselling with me will give you a warm and welcoming confidential space to talk, be heard not judged; and together we can unravel what is troubling you, make sense of it, and work towards where you want to be.
It is important for you the client to find the right person to talk to, someone you feel comfortable with, (although you might feel a bit nervous when we first meet), as the most important part of counselling is the relationship between counsellor and client.
If you would like to know more of how I can be of help to you or would like to book an initial session (half price) why not telephone, email or text me?
