Bex works from a person-centred counselling approach foundation, which focuses on being a supported, client lead, open-ended counselling process. Depending on the need, she brings in aspects of creative therapies and various therapeutic approaches for both adults and children. 

Bex has a special interested in working with children, however, she is also drawn towards the variety of general individual counselling, working alongside young adults and adults who require support as they journey through life's challenges such as anxiety, depression, change, grief and loss.

Meet Otis

Otis is a new addition to Bex's private practice. He is in training as a therapy puppy. Otis is a Labradoodle which means he is non-shedding so great for people with allergies. He brings a soft and cuddly aspect to the counselling space. He is super chilled, so once he has met you he is more than happy to curl up and have a sleep or he always accepts a good belly scratch.

If any client is uncomfortable with Otis being in the room he can be placed in his crate away from them.
