Wendy Longstaff - MBACP (Accred)
Qualified and experienced counsellor based in South Woodford. I work with individuals seeking counselling for issues such as infertility, loss and bereavement, depression, relationship problems, stress and ill-health to name but a few.
I am a qualified BACP Accredited person-centred counsellor with over 10 years' experience. I work privately just a couple of minutes walk from South Woodford Station. In addition I have worked in a number of NHS settings in GP practices in Islington and South Woodford and also as an ancillary counsellor at The Fertility Centre, Homerton Hospital in Hackney. More recently I have been appointed to work as a counsellor at The London Physiotherapy and Wellness Centre in Bow.
Do any of the following apply to you?
Are you feeling anxious, unhappy, sad, depressed? Don't know why or perhaps have some idea? Are you losing sleep worrying? Does everyone around you have a baby and finding it difficult to conceive? Is someone close to you ill or are you coping with illness? Are you a carer and finding it hard to cope? Is work really stressful? Are you lacking in confidence or have low self-esteem? Unhappy relationship or no relationship? Are you struggling to cope with a recent or past bereavement? Don't want to burden family or friends or do you have no one to talk to? Then perhaps exploring your feelings with someone impartial and experienced in listening to these kinds of issues might help.
I provide short and long-term therapy to individuals aged 18 and upwards depending on client's needs. I strongly believe the efficacy of counselling is dependent on the relationship between the client and counsellor and for this reason I will strive to always work with warmth and sensitivity building a relationship and understanding of clients' difficulties to explore their concerns, worries and fears in a peaceful and confidential space. I will treat you with respect, without judgement.
I am committed to working ethically and safely and adhere to the BACP code of ethics. I regularly attend courses and conferences in order to update my knowledge and attend supervision to support my work with clients. What is said to me is always held in the utmost confidence .
Appointments are for one hour and are usually weekly. I have daytime appointments on Mondays and Fridays and Saturday mornings.
If you would like to consider meeting with me then please contact me directly by phone. If I am not available please leave me a message or text me and I will get back to you as soon as I can. If you would prefer to make initial contact by email that would be fine too.
