Russell Woodward MSc in Psychotherapy
I am a fully qualified psychotherapist/counsellor with a master's degree in person-centred & experiential psychotherapy. I offer individual (one to one) therapy for adults (18 years and above) who are seeking psychological help with a variety of mental health issues, emotional difficulties and/or relational problems.
I offer a comfortable, safe and private setting for clients to explore and express their thoughts, feelings and emotions without judgement. As a therapist, my aim is to be fully genuine & trustworthy in relationship with you - while offering you unconditional positive regard (acceptance) and empathic understanding.
I integrate emotion-focused therapy into my practice. This approach can really help individuals when they feel 'stuck' in life and can not see a way forward.
