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.
My experience centres around helping those 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 by me. My aim is to understand what is happening for you in a warm, empathic way without judgement.
I work in a collaborative non-directive way, in equal partnership with yourself; helping you to understand, over-come and/or cope with your current situation(s). Helping you consider, think about/ deal with things differently, so you can feel happier knowing life can be better for you.
Building a good working relationship between us both is paramount to being able to create trust and openness in a safe, therapeutic space for you to explore your difficulties further.
If you think I could be of some help to you then please contact me either by telephone or Email for a free half-hour initial appointment.
I offer full 60-minute hour sessions at a cost of £35 - £60 per session. Concessions available for self-funding students, individuals in receipt of government financial assistance and non- working individuals of pensionable age.
