P. (Mani) Dasgupta-Alexander - Reg. ACC
About me: I am a developmental psychologist (D.Phil) with a post graduate Diploma in Person Centred Counselling. My practice is based on the belief that only the client is the expert on their own life. What I offer is a warm, supportive and empathic environment to facilitate your personal growth, and help you deal with whatever you are struggling with.
About my Practice: My practice is based in Market Drayton, Shropshire, within easy reach of Crewe, Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent. I offer 50 minute sessions once a week, and there are no minimum or maximum limits. In line with good practice I offer a review after every 6 sessions to monitor progress and to get your feedback.
Practice Location: Private room in a building in Market Drayton, on the first floor. There is no lift access. There is ample parking nearby. Details will be provided on contact.
