Psychotherapist & Counsellor (Adults)
Loveday is a fully qualified and experienced Psychotherapist /Psychotherapeutic counsellor registered with the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and UKCP ( UK Council for Psychotherapy) and works with both individuals and couples.
Are you stressed, depressed, anxious, sad or just not feeling yourself? Then counselling might be something that can help you, whether it is a new concern or a long held one. Sometimes emotional pain or life events can temporarily cloud your ability to see possible solutions, leaving you feeling stuck, confused, unhappy, anxious, sad or even shut down. The process of talking about this can gradually make things seem clearer as you make sense of your feelings and your thoughts become more ordered. You can feel change taking place, sometimes to your own surprise and so start to find a way forward that feels right for you.
Loveday is an Integrative Therapist with Transactional Analysis as her core theory but also draws from a range of approaches to offer you the therapy that she feels would help you best.
Loveday is an experienced practitioner, having worked with a variety of people with many different issues both in an NHS setting and in the last few years at her private practice. Loveday has an empathic yet professional approach to her work, being committed to helping clients gain insight and move forward in their lives. She is particularly interested in: grief/loss, relationships and anxiety. Loveday can also incorporate more creative methods such as visualisation, imagery, working with objects or sand if desired or appropriate and she offers both short and long-term therapy for individuals/couples.
You might be worried about meeting a counsellor for the first time. Loveday understands this so will do her best to put you at your ease so you can talk about your concerns in complete confidence. Together you will both create a safe, comfortable space where you can work through your feelings and move forward. Loveday hopes to hear from you as you begin to make the changes you need in your life.
