Heather Meek MBACP (Registered)
Hello, I'm Heather and thank you for clicking on my profile to find out a bit more about me and how I could be of help to you.
As an Integrative, Humanistic counsellor, I have a lot of experience working with issues of mental ill health such as, anxiety, depression, dissociation, trauma, loss, grief), as well as having expertise and special interest in working with disordered eating and unhealthy relationships with food (both men and women).
Embarking on counselling with me will give you a confidential personal space to talk through your concerns/worries/issues, confident in the knowledge that you will be truly listened to and heard.
My aim is to make sense of what is happening for you in a warm, empathic, non judgemental way and work collaboratively to over-come, cope with and /or make changes so life feels more manageable.
Building a good working relationship between us is paramount to being able to create trust and openness in a safe, therapeutic space for you to explore your difficulties further.
If this could be of interest to you then contact me by telephone or Email for a free half-hour initial appointment to find out more.
