Natalie Brayford (MSc Counselling Psychology, MBACP)
My name is Natalie and I provide counselling in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent.
Are you after a down to earth counsellor? Someone who you can feel comfortable enough to share your deepest concerns with? Yes? Then I am the counsellor for you!
I can help to work through past and present experiences which may be affecting you. I am a member of the BACP and will work within all areas of counselling.
I am fully qualified with a MSc in Counselling Psychology and I am also a registered member of the BACP, (MBACP).
I will offer you a safe, caring and confidential space to work through any issues. I am kind, caring and passionate about my work.
Before becoming self-employed I was a bereavement counsellor in a hospice, however due to personal circumstances I decided to take a leap of faith into private practice.
What to expect
I offer an initial, free 20 minute telephone consultation. This is where we will be able to briefly discuss your area of concern, ask any questions you may have and I will be able to explain how I will be able to work with you.
I understand that making the first step to see a counsellor is a big deal and this initial telephone contact will help to reduce your anxiety. If you feel that you would like to come and see me for counselling we will book in a time which is convenient for us both, to meet and start the therapeutic relationship.
The first session usually consists of you explaining your story to me in a safe, confidential and genuine space, free from judgement. I will also run through a contract with you, I do this to promote transparency and safety from the outset.
The sessions are 50 minutes long in comfortable surroundings, more information can be supplied on request.
Don't suffer in silence, let's talk.
