Judith Thompson : Registered MBACP Counsellor and Supervisor
Most of us at one time or another experience situations that we find difficult to cope with. Sometimes we get to a point where we can’t see any light at the end of the tunnel and this is where, I believe, counselling can make such a difference.
I am a Person-centred counsellor and qualified in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. I am registered with the BACP and work within their ethical framework.
I have worked with clients who have been experiencing difficulties with many issues including anxiety, stress, anger, depression, bereavement, abuse, work- related issues, domestic violence and relationship issues. I have experience of working with students studying for a counselling qualification and I have also worked with young people in a High School setting.
I have worked for many years now for a Bolton charity that provides counselling for NHS referrals as well as self referrals for a wide range of issues.
Counselling offers a safe place to get to know yourself a little better. You will not be judged, given advice or told what to do, but you’ll be given time to explore your thoughts and feelings, in a safe environment, to help you get some balance back into your life.
It would be a privilege for me to work with you towards this aim.
I am also a Counselling Supervisor and offer supervision for student and qualified counsellors.
