Hello, I’m Stephen Stokes.
I am an integrative Counsellor, which means I have trained in different modalities and will tailor my services to meet your individual needs.
I have spent the last few years volunteering for a national bereavement charity and have worked with many different people face to face, on the phone and online. It is clear going forward from 2021 that we need to be as flexible as possible in our approach to offering support. I will work with you either on the phone or online using secure video software.
