Janet Funnell MSc Counselling, Reg MBACP (Accred)
I offer integrative counselling and supervision in Redland on a short or long term basis . I have extensive experience of working with individuals in a wide range of areas including: depression and stress; life threatening illness; bereavement; transition and change; work related issues; relationship difficulties and parenting.
Some people come with very specific ideas about what they would like to talk about. Others would like some space to think about their priorities, careers or relationships and whether there are any changes that they would like to make to enhance the quality of their lives.
