Miranda Hiscocks MBACP registered
I am a fully-qualified Psychodynamic counsellor offering a safe and confidential space where experiences and feelings are listened to and explored in a gentle and non-judgemental way.
I offer both long-term and short-term counselling to all age groups including children and adolescents and I also offer couple counselling. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I am based in Sudbury, Suffolk.
I have had extensive experience working both privately and in the NHS sector.
Who can I help?
Most people hit a difficult time at some point in their life and may feel stressed, anxious or overwhelmed for whatever reason. I help people to deal with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship issues, bereavement, abuse, anger management, eating disorders and many more.
At your initial session we talk about what has brought you to consider counselling and how I might be able to help. There is no set number of sessions, some people are happy with just a few and others find they want to take more time.
What is Psychodynamic?
The Psychodynamic approach looks at your life as a whole picture, past and present. There is often a link between past experience and current behaviour, and by exploring this link it can lead towards a clearer understanding of yourself.
How does the approach work?
Developing a deeper self-understanding helps with finding new and easier ways of managing feelings and situations in your everyday life. This in turn helps to relieve emotional distress and leads towards a more fulfilled and happy individual.
Getting in touch
It can sometimes be a daunting decision to consider counselling for the first time. If you would like to talk about it confidentially on the phone first, please just get in touch by email or ring me.
