Polly Hockaday MBACP Dip Couns
Hello, I am Polly, I am a person-centred counsellor with several years of experience working in NHS Primary Care. I offer a professional, calm, supportive and confidential space for you to discuss and reflect on what is troubling you. Together we will set out to carefully explore your feelings and your concerns to try to understand them more deeply.
