Mandy Budden - New Beginnings Counselling And Therapy Services

About me

I am a fully qualified, experienced practitioner offering a range of counselling and therapeutic services in a safe, non-judgemental environment.

There are a variety of reasons why you may seek counselling – this could be a significant life changing event, or you may be experiencing underlying feelings of dissatisfaction or quite simply be seeking balance in your life.

Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They can be used over a short or long term period to help bring about effective change and enhance your well-being. New Beginnings recognise and utilise the strengths from various therapies, which allow maximum flexibility in the treatments we offer. These are specific to your individual needs. We are confident that by working together we can achieve the outcome you are hoping for.

My work experience includes both private practice and charitable settings. My areas of expertise include but are not restricted to: stress and anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, relationship counselling, loss and bereavement, sexual, emotional and physical abuse, addiction and personal growth.
