Sandra DODDS, BA (Hons) MBACP registered counsellor
I am an integratively trained counsellor, which means that I am able to personalise the style of counselling to suit the individual needs of the client. I offer a professional, non-judgemental, confidential service for clients who need a safe, contained place and dedicated time to work through their issues, difficulties and conflicts.
My approach is warm and understanding. I place an emphasis on genuineness and acceptance, creating a safe space in which you can freely talk and share with me your distress worries and concerns without fear of judgement.
For whatever reason you have turned to counselling, I am here to listen and to support, to explore with you your issues and options, and to help you find a way forward.
Starting Counselling can be scary and often people find it difficult to take the plunge. A good way to find out whether counselling feels right for you is to call or Email me to set up a FREE initial session. At this session we will talk about what you want to get out of counselling. Then, if you are happy to continue, we will set up a 2nd session and arrange to see you either weekly or fortnightly, depending on your availability and preference.
