Theresa Hill MBACP (Accred)
Could you benefit from a place to take some time out to explore your thoughts and feelings?
I am a person centred counsellor with over 20 years of counselling experience. I work dynamically to find solutions or new ways of addressing life's challenges. My emphasis is on making a positive difference as soon as possible. Within 2 to 4 sessions I would expect to have discussed new strategies for you to consider.
I offer a warm welcome, listen with compassion, sensitivity and without judgement and ultimately assist people to regain a sense of control and confidence.
My professional experience enables me to work with a wide range of subjects. These might include relationship issues, low mood, loss and grief, problems at work, or anything else which may be worrying you.
Sometimes the cause of stress and anxiety is not readily apparent but you are still unable to shake off the feeling that something is not right. I am competent in meeting these less tangible elements.
As a person centred counsellor I provide a secure working relationship in which we can explore the various factors of your life that are causing you most concern. By providing both the space and time away from the clamour of everyday life you will begin to rebuild trust in your own ability to visualise possibilities for overcoming what may have seemed insurmountable.
I draw from a wide range of techniques proven to support the person centred approach.
