Tessa Abbas, MBACP Registered, Post Grad Dip Integrative Counselling,
I offer a safe, non-judgemental space for you to explore challenges and feel encouraged to take the next steps, whatever they may be. Sometimes it takes a professional listening ear to find a new perspective and new tools to deal with life's issues.
It can take a lot of courage to come for counselling, and I meet each person with respect, acceptance and recognising their potential. I offer a confidential environment where we can explore what you are finding challenging and work together towards your goals. Through talking and exploring your reality, it's possible to make sense of difficult things and recognise the resources you have inside.
You can contact me over email, text or phone and we'll arrange an initial session. At this session we get to know each other - I'll let you know how I work and you can share some of the issues that you'd like to explore. Then together we'll think about the next useful steps - some people have weekly sessions, others fortnightly, some for one or two sessions and others work with me for months.
If there is an area for which you would like therapy that isn't listed below, please call me on 07449 084556 and we can discuss how we could work together.
