Michelle Felstead MBACP
You are brave and have identified that you need some support at this very difficult time. Life is complicated and can leave us with feelings of anxiety, stress and depression. These negative feelings make life overwhelming. My approach draws from different talking therapies so that I can specifically tailor the way I work with you and your concerns. I offer one to one Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling operating within the BACP Framework for good practice.
I provide a safe, secure and confidential setting where personal issues, problems, thoughts and feelings can be explored. I will listen in a non-judgemental manner with empathy, understanding and acceptance, helping you to identify and explore whatever is troubling you.
I will work through a problem with you, in order to help you to find your best way of coping with any issues, thoughts or feelings that may be causing you concern. The counselling you receive may be short and goal focused, or open ended.
The initial meeting is to discuss your requirements. This will not commit you to further sessions unless you wish to proceed. Sessions are usually weekly, lasting for 50 minutes.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and fully insured.
