Victoria Northern Counsellor
Hello, welcome to my page.
I offer a friendly, genuine and compassionate counselling service. I work with children, young people and adults with various current difficulties or historical issues such as depression, anxiety, chronic stress, phobias, OCD, trauma, anger, bereavement, grief, self harm, relationship/family issues and abuse.
I am an integrative counsellor who works in a relational approach. This means I use a variety of therapeutic skills that are best suited for each individual. The aim of the sessions are to help you work through your presenting issues, to gain more insight, to develop coping skills and to live a healthier happier life.
I offer short, medium and long term therapy either face to face, online or via telephone. I am able to see clients in Huddersfield, Dewsbury and Wakefield areas.
I believe that therapy can help you find healing, acceptance, purpose and a new way of living.
If you feel that therapy is the next step for you, please contact me to discuss further.
