Mandy Randall-Gavin BA (Hons), Dip TA Practice, MBACP
Life can be a challenge in all sorts of areas of our lives and these challenges may occur at any time. Sometimes we just need that extra independent support to help us work through these challenges. I am a qualified counsellor in TA Practice, with more than 8 years' client experience. I work face-face and online with adults and couples over 18, relationally, in a safe, comfortable, and private space in which you can express/articulate how you think, feel and behave. We work together with what's in the room between us. No judgements. I may use Mindfulness to help ground you in the here and now - effective when you're feeling particularly anxious, or may be worried by factors outside your control. I may work creatively using sand tray and drawing where appropriate.
I offer short and long-term counselling.
I am situated 2 minutes walk from Goring-by-Sea Station platform. Should you come by car, there is off street parking available.
My working hours are:
Monday 08:00 - 21:00
Tuesday 08:00 - 18:00
Wednesday 08:00 - 21:00
The first session is charged at £25 and will help us to decide whether or not we can work with each other.
