Isabelle Chefdor, BACP registered counsellor and Supervisor
If you are feeling that life can be a struggle and is not as fulfilling as you would wish to be, why not contact me and we could discuss how I can help you. I offer professional and confidential therapy in Chorlton and in Salford, however, I can be flexible and can meet you in a mutually convenient place depending upon your needs as I believe it is important to be in a safe environment for your issues and experiences to be understood and accepted. I hope I can help you to explore your 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 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 anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement, trauma, anger, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, sadness , addiction, abuse, family and relationships issues. Alongside my private practice, I work within the NHS with staff who mainly bring work related issues but also personal issues. I also offer relaxation session.
I specialise in self esteem, self confidence and understanding self, as well as childhood issues and relationships issues and through that; working on strategies to solve and manage issues so you can find happiness.
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. I also offer counselling sessions in French.
I see myself as a genuine, understanding, empathetic, approachable and non-judgemental person. These qualities will help build a rapport between the client and myself. I regularly attend training courses, workshops to learn new skills to maintain a high standard in my counselling.
