Louise Andrews - Psychotherapist and Supervisor MBACP (Snr Accredited)
Life can become hard for us all from time to time for various reasons. Counselling can be a good place to begin to look at what's going on.
By sharing what's troubling you in a safe, supporting, unbiased and confidential relationship it can become possible to work towards the goal of therapy which Professor Stephen Joseph describes as, " Not just being about people surviving or getting through life but instead should aim to encourage people to find a way forward towards leading meaningful, purposeful and flourishing lives.
I am experienced in offering support to people in both the voluntary sector and in private practice for a wide range of counselling issues. As we work together, client's can gain insight, perspective and a greater understanding of themselves and what's going on for them and the options and choices available.
Please get in touch with me if you'd like to make an appointment or if you would like more information about how I work.
