Simon Howes, Registered Member MBACP (Accred), Dip. Psych., BA (Hons) Exon.
My name is Simon Howes, and I am an experienced and caring counsellor and psychotherapist with a private practice in Northampton.
I provide a discreet and confidential service and hold sessions in my therapy room in a quiet residential area near Abington Park, ten minutes drive from Northampton town centre. There is ample free parking on the road outside.
Choosing the right therapist is an important process, and I understand that it can take courage to begin seeking help and support. Because of this, I offer an initial fifty minute consultation with no obligation or commitment to attend any further sessions, to give you the chance to meet me and see if you feel comfortable with me and the way that I work.
For further information about my practice and background, please feel free to visit my website www.northamptoncounselling.co.uk.
Should you have any additional queries though or wish to book a consultation, please do get in touch by calling or texting me on 07867 980 253 or by emailing me at email@example.com.
