Serena Waite Regd. MBACP Person Centred Counsellor ( Delce Counselling Services)
Avenue Business Centre
17 New Road Avenue
Sometimes in our lives we may feel alone or lost and afraid to talk about our feelings for fear of judgement or rejection. Talking in confidence, in a non judgemental space and at your own pace can be the stepping stones to finding answers, finding your true self and to finding new paths.
I aim to offer to you a space for you to talk in confidence and at your own pace, so that you may explore your true identity and so that you may feel enabled and better equipped to choose to live your life in ways that meet what you too need in life.
As a Person Centred Counsellor I trust that you are the only person who knows what you want, how you are feeling and what it is you are thinking and so I always aim to offer to you a space where you will feel enabled to explore what you need, what feels right for you and how you can grow to feel more safe in yourself and with others.
I truly believe that we all have within us, what it is we need to be what and who we want in life.
If you have not experienced counselling before you may not know what to expect or what is expected.
During the first session we discuss what it is you are hoping for and what it is I can offer so that you can see if counselling is right for you and my style meets your needs.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I offer one to one, face to face counselling for adults.
I work with both long and short term counselling.The number of sessions available is open to negotiation, you may opt to have a set number of sessions or choose to leave it open.

Both self referrals or professional referrals are accepted.

As a registered member of the BACP ( British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists), my aim is to offer counselling guided by the ethical principles of the BACP and also founded on my theoretical approach which is Person Centred to promote the value in others who may not have been valued or who may not consider themselves to have worth.
