Heidi ShepherdIntegrative counsellor
Hello, I’m Heidi, an approachable and down-to-earth therapist, aiming to offer you a confidential, calm, open-minded and non-judgmental space for you to express and explore any current difficulties, hurt or worries in your life. My counselling approach is integrative, mainly drawing on person-centred, psychodynamic concepts and , though I also work creatively and intuitively within the moment.
I understand that life is complex and sometimes you might need some extra support, especially if you're feeling sad, fearful or overwhelmed just trying to get through another day. You may have been through a painful experience, or perhaps you've lost a sense of who you are, where you belong, what you want in life. I offer a confidential place for you to talk about whatever is most important to you, where you can be properly heard and seen without being judged, or told what to do.
OnlineI also provide my services online.
