About me and my therapy practice
My name is Andy Meads and I am qualified (with distinction) as a Humanistic and Integrative counsellor with BCPC. I have a wealth of experience built up over more than 25 years of working with people in a wide range of both voluntary and statutory health and social care settings.
Whatever people have brought to their sessions with me as their counsellor; they have found that being listened to, having a safe and confidential space and gaining self-awareness has been a helpful experience for them.
As your counsellor, I will not tell you what to do or give you the answers but rather I will 'walk alongside you' without judgement.
Perhaps you want to discuss a certain problem with someone who is not connected to you.
Perhaps you are experiencing difficulties in relation to work, relationships, illness or other personal problems that you find difficult to talk about to someone you know.
Perhaps you need an opportunity to take time and space to consider your own priorities and needs.
Perhaps at this current time, you may be feeling anxious or daunted about Coronavirus restrictions and would like to explore how this pandemic has impacted on you.
Perhaps you have been impacted by bereavement or other loss during the Coronavirus pandemic and wish to talk to someone about this.
If you choose to work with me as your counsellor, I will value your uniqueness, listen to you and witness your story.
We can work together so you can find the way through the challenges you are currently facing in a safe and confidential space with me as your counsellor. I can work with you short term or long term.
As part of my Continuing Professional Development, because I value empowerment I continue to explore my own identity within my conscious and unconscious attitudes. I practise as an ethically and culturally responsible counsellor with Anti-Discriminatory and Anti-Oppressive values.
My practice is within easy reach of Corsham, Bath, Melksham, Chippenham, Trowbridge.
At the current time, I offer online counselling via Zoom and telephone counselling.
Each session will last 50 minutes and will be at the same time and day each week. I am able to offer morning, afternoon or some evening appointments.
My first session
If you are interested in seeking counselling with me, do contact me via phone or email. I usually respond within 24 hours to any enquiry about counselling.
We can arrange an Initial Meeting and during the meeting we can discuss what you are looking to get out of counselling and explore whether we can work together. I may suggest other agencies that can help you.
There is a charge of £40 for the Initial Meeting.
If we both feel we can work together then we will agree a number of sessions, which can be reviewed.
