Isabelle chefdor MBACP, Counsellor & Supervisor, Individual & Couple Counselling
I am a fully qualified person centred therapist with many years experience. I use an integrative approach using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques and a motivational approach. I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I offer short term or long term therapy.
I work with individuals and couples, or with any other relationships.
Do you feel that life can be a struggle ? Not as fulfilling as you would wish to be? Have you got difficulties from the past which have an impact on your present life. Are you anxious and thinking too much about the future. Do you struggle with being in a relationship, are there conflicts within family ?
I offer professional and confidential therapy in Salford, in a safe and open environment for your issues and experiences to be understood and accepted. I will help you explore these issues and make sense of what is going on for you at the present. We will work together and identify the barriers which are stopping you getting where you want to be or who you want to be.
I work with anxiety, relationships and family issues, depression, stress, bereavement, trauma, anger, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, sadness , addiction, abuse. Alongside my private practice, I work within the NHS and counsel staff who mainly bring work related issues but also personal issues. I also offer relaxation session and deliver resilience and well-being workshop.
I specialise in relationships, childhood issues, self esteem, self confidence and through that; working on strategies to solve and manage issues so you can find happiness.
I see myself as a genuine, understanding, empathetic, approachable and non-judgemental person. I would hope these qualities would help build a rapport between yourself and myself. I regularly attend training courses, workshops to learn new skills to maintain a high standard in my counselling.
I am French native meaning that I understand how difficult it is to adapt and build a life in another country, learning to live in a different culture and speak a different language. I am aware of the anxieties and loneliness which can often be experienced in moving to a foreign country.
Why not contact me and we could discuss how I can help you managing the present better. I offer an initial 15 minutes free telephone session over the phone.
