Juliet Miles Lea Registered MBACP
I offer person-centred counselling and supervision, working in a peaceful, rural setting.
My focus is you and the individual circumstances that have brought you to try counselling.
I believe that by offering genuine empathy and acceptance, the foundations of trust can be laid and together we can work through your difficulties.
I also work in secondary schools, with clients aged 11 -18, and am happy to also see this age group as private clients.
"Walking therapy" is also possible - please visit my website www.hollingbournecounselling.co.uk for further details.
Issues I am used to dealing with include: abuse; addictions (including eating disorders and self harm); anger issues; anxiety and phobias; bereavement and loss (grief); depression; family conflict; relationship issues; self esteem; sexuality issues.
