About me and my therapy practice
Hello I'm Belinda and I have over 14 years’ experience with the NHS and in private practice counselling adults with a wide variety of issues. Life doesn’t always go to plan and events whether recent or in the past can have a huge impact and they can leave you feeling confused, anxious, depressed and struggling to see a way forward. Counselling can help and working in a safe space where you can explore your issues and feelings without any fear of being judged. My approach is warm and empathic and I always work to build trust in the counselling relationship to enable you to feel able to be open and honest about yourself. I will encourage and support you to explore any challenging or painful issues and feeling at your pace. Your experiences are unique and I will tailor the counselling to support your needs using an integrative approach.
My formal qualifications are: BA (Hons) Psychology, Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling, M.A. in Counselling Studies and Advanced Certificate in Person-Centred Experiential Counselling For Depression
