Penny Dennis, Reg.MBACP (Accred)
3 Cranfield Park Road
Counselling can help deal with issues that are causing emotional pain or discomfort and with over 35 yrs experience I provide individual counselling enabling exploration and resolution of issues such as Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety disorder, Panic disorder, Depression, Bereavement, Work related stress, Relationship Conflicts, Low Self esteem, to name but a few.
I offer an initial session where we both decide whether we can work together and without meaning to make light of this very important process I liken it to one of choosing a pair of shoes.. We need to fit. The importance of the relationship between client and counsellor is paramount to the therapeutic process and so important in bringing about change.
Generally we agree a number of sessions and a point where we will review how it's progressing.
On occasions we will agree to exploring reading material or the trying out of techniques or coping mechanisms between sessions.
