About me and my therapy practice
I have been in Practise for adults and young people for the past twenty six years.
Being really listened to and heard by a non-judgemental, caring therapist can help sustain you through difficult times. With this support new insights can be gained. This can be the start towards building new strength and finding ways towards solving past or present issues that could help you towards living a satisfying healthy life.
In addition to being a qualified Counsellor, I am also trained in the use of Integrative Arts Psychotherapy (for example using the sand-tray, drawing and drama role play as a way into the therapy). This can make it easier to express oneself if, quite understandably, you might find it difficult to initially talk about your problems. It is always the clients choice whether or not they use these additional techniques .
In addition to my private counselling practice, I have worked as a School Counsellor, in the National Health Sector, Child Residential Care Homes and a Mind Mental Health Day Centre as a group facilitator.
I have also taught on various counsellor training courses.
If you would like to call me to discuss your needs or arrange an initial appointment, I would be happy to answer any questions or concerns you might have about whether or not I might be a suitable therapist for you.
All sessions take place in a purpose built log cabin situated in a private tranquil location which allows total privacy for your session to take place.
By car: There is free private secure parking immediately outside the building.
By Train: To Gordon Hill over ground station then a ten minute walk or two minute drive down a country lane, or by underground on the Piccadilly line, then a short bus ride followed by a ten minute walk down a country lane.
My first session
Your first appointment will last for an hour this will provide you with all the information you might need to decide whether or not counselling could be right for you. Also if I could be the right therapist for you to engage with. You can decide at the end of the first session or let me know in your own time. If you decide to go ahead, a weekly appointment will be set up.
If you have any questions or would like to arrange an appointment, please get in touch.
Kind regards Hazel
