Michelle Walpole. Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor MBACP
As a practitioner, it is my aim to develop a safe, respectful and confidential environment for you to explore your difficulties. I have gained my experience through working for the NHS within a GP Surgery. This has enabled me to learn a huge amount about us human beings. I have also spent time as a volunteer for MIND the mental health charity as well as a number of youth organisations.
I understand that there may be times when the world feels like a lonely place to be, as we struggle to work out difficulties. I can be with you to help you discover a way forward to a happier life.
Just for further peace of mind, I hold an enhanced DBS background check which allows me to work safely with children and vulnerable adults.
I look forward to hearing from you either by email or telephone to discuss any further information you may require.
