Patricia Stead Person-centred/humanistic counsellor ,

As a counsellor I strive to provide a non-judgemental, understanding and honest relationship in a safe environment. I have being in private practice for six years and counselled young people, adults of all ages and couples. I tailor the sessions to suit the client as counselling is very subjective and each individual responds to different types of counselling. As a counsellor I have counselled in primary schools and also at a community college counselling students with a diverse range of issues. In addition to my private practice I was a volunteer for six years with Cruse Bereavement Care.

i have worked with children, young people and adults of all ages and backgrounds within the Health Authority, Local Authority and the voluntary sector. As a tutor for adults with learning and other disabilities I facilitated groups on exploring emotions, coping with stress and anger, self esteem and confidence building as well as relationships and bereavement.

As a counsellor I offer an opportunity to feel comfortable to talk through difficult issues and explore and understand how you are feeling at your own pace. I offer daytime, evening and limited weekend appointments in comfortable private rooms. Home visits are also available as well as online and telephone sessions.
