About me and my therapy practice
Hi Im Barbara an experienced Person Centred Counsellor and Supervisor.I hope to offer a service which feels safe, warm, empathic and non judgemental. Where you can feel free to be yourself and talk about any difficulties you may be facing.

I have gained much experience working closely with and supporting many adults as a counsellor over the past few years in various agency and charity settings, as well as in private practice. I have helped the adults I have worked alongside, increase their own self esteem and assisted in empowering them to improve their own ability to deal with difficulties in their lives both individually and in couples including issues such as:
anxiety, depression, loss, bereavement, anger, relationship difficulties, communication and conflict management,Infertility, miscarriage, trauma, addiction, isolation, abuse, rape and domestic violence.

Previously worked for a children’s charity providing emotional and therapeutic support in primary and secondary schools, building children's resilience through talking, creative work and play. Helping them to cope with wide-ranging and often complex social issues including bullying, bereavement, domestic violence, family breakdown, neglect and trauma Helping them to increase confidence and self esteem particularly when experiencing anxiety relating to issues such as relationships, loss and bullying.
