Welcome to Hathaways Counselling
There are times in all of our lives when we face personal challenges, which are difficult to negotiate, counselling can help to navigate through these difficult times. I specialise in supporting my clients to find a solution that works for them and one that makes sense in the context their lives.
The direction each session takes is always based on listening carefully to what the client wants and supporting them whilst we work through the options open to them.
My goal is always to provide a confidential, collaborative and non-judgmental environment, which allows the client to determine their desired outcome and then I work with them on how they might achieve this. In my experience this provides clients with the uniquely tailored support they require and empowers them to make the changes they want in their lives.
I work from a mainly Solution Focused approach. Solution Focused Brief Therapy prioritises what the client wants to be different in their lives and builds on their strengths and resources so they can achieve their desired outcome as quickly as possible. I am also trained to deliver mindfulness techniques. I offer both face-to-face therapy and online therapy via Skype, Zoom and FaceTime. (Online only at present)
Counselling can be of help in many situations a few examples are:
Bereavement/Grief & Loss
Anxiety & Stress
Career & Workplace Issues
Divorce / Separation / Impact on family
