Trudi Mason Registered MBACP Therapeutic & Systemic counsellor
My name is Trudi Mason, I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, I am a fully qualified and experienced Counsellor, I have been in practice for the last nine years. I am qualified to work with Children, Adolescents, Adults, Couples and Families. Alongside my private practice I work as the Senior Counsellor for Weymouth College, I am also a registered practitioner with Relate Dorset and South Wiltshire.
I offer an empathic, non judgemental confidential space to allow you to explore issues which may be causing you difficulties. All our stories and experiences are unique to us as individuals. Counselling gives you the space to breath, reflect and explore patterns of relationship behaviour, to explore trauma past or present, issues that you may have coped with previously but now feel overwhelming.
I book sessions in blocks of 8, which can be extended for longer term work.
