Natalie Selby MBACP Integrative Counsellor

About me

Talk to someone who cares... my aim is to support you on a journey towards living life to your full potential. I can offer a safe, confidential, friendly environment in order for you to explore your thoughts and feelings surrounding whatever issues you may have.

You may be suffering with stress, anxiety, depression because of something that has happened, or you may not know the reason why. Sometimes even close friends and family are too emotionally involved to be able to help or really listen. My role as a counsellor is to support you with these feelings and together we can look at ways to get your life back on track.

A little bit about my background-

So strong was my desire to help and support other people, that in 2008 I decided to train as a Counsellor. I qualified as a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor after 3yrs of studying and then went onto study for another 2yrs and qualified at a higher level. I am a registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I adhere to their code of ethics.

The way that I work-

My work involves using a number of different approaches in order to suit each individual. I work Humanistically whereby the focus is on self-development, growth and responsibilities. I seek to help individuals recognise their strengths, creativity and choice in the 'here and now'.
I offer both long term and short term therapy for all ages.
I have successfully worked with children, adolescents and adults with a wide variety of issues, including- work/school related issues, relationship issues, bereavement, anger- management, grief and loss, depression, self-harm, panic attacks, anxiety....

"Dear Natalie,
        Thank you for doing the job you well. I would never have believed I could feel so much better, but with your support I do. I feel like I can really live my life and enjoy it.
Best wishes
