Saskia Bennette PgDip. MBACP NCS.(Accred)
Thank you for entering the Counselling Directory and welcome to my profile - my name is Saskia and I am an integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist.
I have developed my practice through applying a number of different therapies (hence integrative), including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which is an evidence based therapy now widely used in the NHS. Recently I have specialised in Psychological Trauma and PTSD, as well as Couple Counselling.
Choosing the right therapy or therapies will be the most important way in which we will be able to build our relationship and to help you in dealing with your unique situation, and I hope that should we decide to work together we will achieve a 100% positive result.
Furthermore, alongside therapy, I am also able to offer an extremely effective, non-pharmacological device, developed in the United States and used worldwide, for clients who present with anxiety, insomnia, stress and depression.
In my career I have supported many clients who have felt traumatised and unable to see the way forward, but who have managed to work through their issues with the appropriate supporting therapy.
Although my key areas of experience cover the following: Trauma, Relationship issues, Addiction (I worked as an addiction counsellor in the NHS for many years), Anxiety, Stress-related issues, Phobias, and Anger Management, I also offer counselling for many other areas of concern.
Please feel free to visit my website innerselfcounselling.com or contact me by telephone (07789 502 105) or email (email@example.com) to discuss your particular situation in more detail. All contact is treated confidentially.
Please note that I am also trained to work with minors, providing a parent or guardian, gives written consent.
