Imogen Haslam Dip Couns (MBACP), Pg.Dip
Stresed? Depressed? Anxious? Panic Attacks? I have over 13 years experience of working with people to support them in managing a wide range of mental health issues, as well as being a counsellor.
I understand talking to a stranger can feel scary, especially about your mental health. Counselling is about being listened to and accepted, as you are. I am not here to judge you or tell you what to do.
Often people come to a counsellor when they know something feels wrong, but can't seem to sort it out. They are facing challenges in their life but talking to family or friends isn't helping, and they are feeling lonely and lost.
Here, with me, you can step away from your day-to-day life and give yourself the space you need to look at what's going on for you.
We have as much time as you want to look at what might not be working for you any more and explore how you feel, think and behave so you are able to find your own solutions to move forward.
I don't believe in "one size fits all" counselling so I trained as an integrative counsellor, which means I work with a variety of approaches so we can tailor your counselling to your needs.
I specialise in working with:
- a wide range of mental health issues including stress, anxiety and depression
- university students (I am a university mental health mentor)
- problems at work (I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Organisational Psychology and several years experience of supporting people with work issues e.g. stress at work, work relationships, communication at work)
- difficulties in relationships
I offer both short and long-term counselling, based on what my clients feel they need. New clients are very welcome to come for a 50 minute introductory session for £10.00, so you can get a feel for how I work and we can see how I can help you.
