Nathalie MacLeod MBACP Dip. Integrative Counsellor
As a qualified counsellor, I have worked with people from different types of backgrounds, I have particular interests in helping with loss, trauma, anxiety, illness or recovering from an illness, and self-esteem. I offer a confidential and non-judgmental professional service where you can explore the issues that matter to you within your life.
Sometimes life can be difficult, and we don't always know what to do next. I believe we hold the answers, but we don't always have the courage or the tools to help us find a way. I also believe that we are all different and unique. Therefore, I work in an integrative way, which means that I use a range of approaches tailored to your needs and the nature of the material you bring into therapy. The number of sessions required will vary from person to person, I offer both short term therapy, which is about six sessions and more long term or open ended counselling if it’s required. We can discuss this during our assessment session.
My private practice is in quiet and private setting in Ingatestone. There is plenty off road parking.
As a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy I abide by their ethical frameworks. I also have full professional indemnity insurance and am committed to ongoing personal and professional development.
I aim to give you an opportunity to think and talk about what’s going on for you, to understand more about why you are feeling as you do, and to support you to find your own ways forward in the situations that you face whether this is in your current situation or from past memories and experiences.
Understandably, finding a counsellor can sometimes be a daunting experience, so please be assured of a sympathetic response if you get in touch with me.
