Pippa Bevan Wright MBACP
I offer short term and open ended counselling to individuals and I am experienced in working with children, young people and adults who have come for counselling for many different reasons.
I'm a member of the B.A.C.P (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and also a member of the Children and Young People division of the B.A.C.P.
I work in an integrative way, which means that I will use the approach which fits best with the client, depending on what they have come to counselling for. For example, bereavement counselling will be different from someone wishing to overcome a phobia and counselling children will involve play therapy, so depending on the age and need of the client the counselling will vary.
I will not give you advice or tell you what to do but support you in finding your own way, without judgement and will listen and reflect what is said, giving you the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings about yourself and your relationships with others. We can work together through personal, psychological or emotional problems.

If you are a student, unemployed or are on a low income I would still like to hear from you as I believe that everyone should have access to counselling. I have two concessionary places, subject to availability, for which we can negotiate a reduced price.
If you would like to meet and chat to decide whether you want to come for counselling, feel free to phone or email to make an appointment. This meeting is free and you are under no obligation to book further sessions. I can offer both daytime and evening appointments to suit your availability.
