Heather Oddy CPCAB Adv.Dip. MNCS (Accred)
I am a qualified counsellor offering a safe, confidential space to explore the difficulties which you may wish to bring to the counselling session.
I am committed and passionate about helping and supporting people through difficult life experiences and challenges, to learn about themselves, their motivations and choices, to develop their internal understanding and make positive changes towards finding a way forward in life.
I work in an integrative way, adapting a Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, and Cognitive approach suitable for your individual needs.
I have a wide knowledge of experience supporting people suffering from a range of mental health problems, such as generalised anxiety disorders, depression, panic attacks, stress, loss and bereavement, feeling sad, physical & mental abuse, and I am currently working with people who are suffering from ill-health, loneliness, isolation, lack confidence and low self-esteem.
I am committed in supporting you throughout your difficult journey offering a genuine and accepting relationship.
I am a qualified counsellor and Registrant (Accredited) Member of the National Counselling Society for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their Ethical Framework.
Please feel free to give me a call or drop me an email so we can have a chat about what you are looking for in a counsellor and whether I am able to help you.
