Michele Simpson MBACP registered
Most people at some point in their lives have felt so overwhelmed in a situation that they find it impossible to see a way out. I aim to provide a safe and confidential environment for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and options available. My belief is that, given this, you have the resources within yourself to experience therapeutic change. It can feel good to be free of the burdens that you originally came into counselling to address.
I am a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the BACP. My approach is integrative, which means that my knowledge of different approaches allows me to work with clients in the way that is most beneficial to them. I am based in Takeley, which is on the borders of Essex and Hertfordshire, but I also have the facility to practice from rooms in Harlow.
Why not give me a call to see how I can help you to improve your life? Counselling could enable you to have that new beginning.
