Vicky Bradshaw MBACP Counsellor & Supervisor
There may be times when you feel overwhelmed by your thoughts or feelings.
Sometimes we can feel lost or confused.
Maybe you just need somebody to listen, someone who doesn't know you and wont judge.
Or maybe you would just like to find out more about yourself.
Maybe your experiencing a crisis and need immediate support.
This is where counselling could help. Talking through and exploring these issues can bring insight, which in turn brings change.
To me, the most important thing about therapy is the relationship between the client and counsellor. If the relationship is built on trust, support, equality and honesty, then it allows for a nurturing and healing process to take place.
I offer a non-judgemental and supportive space for people who are experiencing difficulties.
