Linda Davies Integrative counsellor , CR8
Whether you come as a couple or as an individual I aim to quietly support you and help to relieve some of the issues that cause you distress in a way that is warm, respectful and caring.
I work collaboratively with clients of all genders, sexuality and heritage, exploring the full range of whatever brings you to therapy and do so in a way that is non - judgemental and safe. You do not have to do this alone. I can help you to regulate emotions that seem to overwhelm you, ease anxiety through talking, discover and work on underlying issues that may be stopping you from feeling emotionally secure.
I provide a safe environment for you to explore meaning behind thoughts and feelings, manage your reactions and help you make positive and lasting changes. In doing so you may find you you have a better understanding of self and others and better relationships.
My practice is near to Croydon and I draw clients from Streatham, West Norwood, Crystal Palace and surrounding areas.
