Verity Spencer MBACP, BSc Psych (Lon). Advanced Dip. Integrative Counselling
Verity is a qualified Humanistic Integrative Counsellor and offers professional psychological support in a dependable, calm and confidential environment, where you will have an opportunity to explore your feelings and to understand yourself and your life from a different perspective. The aim is reduce confusion and to enable you to make informed choices, manage challenges, or to make positive changes.
The process involves making connections and then identifying what changes can be made in your life. Therapy also encourages you to recognise and consider what cannot be changed.
Many people are nervous at the prospect of coming to counselling, especially if it is for the first time, so the first appointment provides an opportunity to discuss your reasons for attending counselling and to consider the best way forward.
Verity is a member of BACP (The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and is a graduate member of the BPS (The British Psychological Society).
