Michelle Mainwood MBACP Registered
I am a qualified counsellor with experience working with adults and young people.
There are many reasons for people to turn to counselling. Sometimes just having someone impartial to listen to you and the time to talk freely without judgement can be beneficial to help you gain clarity and understanding. I offer a safe and confidential space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings and I help you to gain insight and understanding, which will enable you to work through your troubles.
I am an integrative counsellor, which means I integrate different models of counselling in order to meet the individual needs of my clients.
I am a registered member of the BACP (MBACP) and I abide by the BACP ethical framework.
