Valerie Thwaites - MBACP
Hello, my name is Valerie, I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor with the belief that everyone has the ability to grow and reach their potential and lead happy and fulfilling lives.
I have experience in supporting people over a range of issues, anxiety, bereavement, depression, anger, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, relationship issue, domestic violence, cancer, self-harm, stress, infertility, post-traumatic stress disorder, trust, miscarriage, self-esteem, addictions.
I can offer you a safe, confidential, supportive, non-judgemental space to talk over any issues that you bring to the session. During this time we will develop a counselling relationship and explore your issues.
The name of the practice is Thwaites Counselling – I chose this name because it represents my name. My father passed away when I was a child and this service is a tribute to him. The name Thwaites originates from the forest it means dweller at the meadow – To me this represents growth and new life.
