Linda Ann Dodd Dip Couns MBACP (Accred) Dip Supervision
Sometimes, something just isn't right. You don't need to have the answers, or even be clear about what you need as, hopefully, you can put your trust in me to help you. All of us are so different so I have developed a range of skills so I can fit best with you. I work with adults, young people from age 11 and with relationships using the skills and experience that I have developed from dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, addictions, relationship issues, stress, as well as managing anger, panic, fear, trauma and child sexual abuse.
Learn to understand yourself and develop different ways of being .
My comfortable and confidential therapy room is in my home in Dartford, or I can visit you at home. Appointments can be made for various times of day across the week. My service is completely confidential and is focused on what you need as an individual without judgement and with respect.
Sessions last for 50 minutes and I can offer them weekly or fortnightly. You may wish to focus on an issue that can be worked with on a short term basis and open ended therapy is also available.
