Yvonne Hockey - Registered MBACP Counsellor
Taking the initial steps to making contact and giving yourself permission to access support can be one of the most hardest and difficult decisions. I imagine you are here because life is feeling emotionally uncomfortable at the moment.
As a professional and experienced therapeutic counsellor my aim is to offer you a safe and confidential space to explore your thoughts and feelings given the difficulties you may be facing. I can help you to take more control of your life and help to make your own choices in order to bring about the necessary changes you desire and move forward to where you want to be. I work from a person-centred theoretical basis offering you a genuinely non-judgemental, empathic and warm relationship. I will walk by your side throughout your journey whilst you explore and be heard.
