Hi my name is Penny and I am an experienced qualified registered Counsellor.
I am a warm and empathic person-centred counsellor though I do integrate other approaches depending on the issues you are struggling with. I have a gentle but effective approach working with all age groups with a variety of issues including anxiety, stress, depression, sexual abuse, OCD,eating disorders, bereavement and relationship issues.
I work with individuals where one to one therapy provides an excellent opportunity to work through the difficulties you are struggling with while feeling listened to and feeling understood.
I also offer couples counselling where I work with couples helping them work successfully through their relationship issues. Providing a safe trusting place where you can explore and begin to make sense of each other's feelings while feeling heard and understood.
I offer a dedicated private counselling room, providing a confidential and safe space for you to explore all feelings without being judged so you feel listened to, valued and understood. It will be a place where you’ll have the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings while in a safe comfortable environment with support and encouragement to gain some balance back in your life. Helping you find within the strength to make the changes needed to move forward with your life.
Having been through issues in my own life I fully appreciate the courage it takes to make this step in coming for counselling and feel it would be a privilege for me to work with you.
I offer a consultation where you can come and meet me and share the issues you’re struggling with. This I find helps you feel more settled to start your sessions. I can also answer any questions you may have by telephone or email.
