Irene Hunt MBACP (Accred)
An experienced therapist, I offer a lower cost, confidential first session to discuss your needs before you decide if you would like to proceed. I am a caring and approachable person and aim to provide support within a safe and trusting environment. I work with both short and longer term clients.
We all face difficult times in our lives and sometimes find that our usual ways of coping are not working. Together, we can look at what has brought you to counselling and explore your thoughts and feelings to help you to gain an understanding of how past events, a problem in the present, or fears for the future, can be affecting your daily living.
I have been working as a counsellor for twenty years and am able to draw on experience and training to enable me to provide the approach that is right for you.
I work with a wide range of issues, including; anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, bereavement and loss, stress at work, anger, childhood issues, pain, eating disorders, self esteem, panic.
