Hi, my name is Brenda Stevenson and I have been practicing as a clinical counsellor and psychotherapist for 14 years. I use a holistic approach to help you gain self awareness through deeper exploration of your experiences, thoughts, feelings, memories and behaviour.
I work with individual adults, and I have experience working with groups. My experience includes trauma, abuse, dissociation and body related issues, anxiety, depression, relationships, separation, grief and loss, transitions, and assisting people who return to study or begin study after many years or decades to manage the study load and the pressures of completing assignments and exam stress.
Finding a counsellor that fits with you is not always easy and it's essential you feel comfortable and safe with the counsellor you choose to discuss your personal issues. Our first session together will help you to decide if the service I offer is right for you.
I also offer training in self esteem, stress, anger and life changes.
"Having counselling sessions available via Skype has been invaluable for me. Skyping sessions has ensured I can maintain confidential counselling sessions despite now living many hours from my counsellor, Brenda. Conducting Skype sessions in place of face-to-face appointments has increased the productivity of my week and given me so much more flexibility in managing my time as I only need to organise time to be online. Most importantly though, my Skyped sessions give me the same support and level of help, and are as effective for me as face-to-face sessions." HK
"I wanted to thank you so much for spending the time you did with me, you may not realise it but the impact you had on me was really significant and I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate it." PJ
