Isabelle McGarahan BA (Hons), Accredited ACC
You may feel that you are stuck in a situation and cannot see a clear way through.
Counselling can help you talk about stresses, anxieties and other problems in your life in order to cope better in difficult circumstances.
I am a registered and fully accredited counsellor with ACC and all my work is carried out in accordance with their ethical guidelines. I have had many years of experience as teacher, pastoral carer, mentor, and counsellor.
I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space, working alongside you. My approach is person centred, integrative and creative - tailored to meet the needs of each individual client.
I work with both adults and youth (DBS cleared).
Your first appointment is free in order to explore whether counselling is the way forward for you. Subsequent 1 hour sessions are £35 - reduced rates available.
