Andy Woodcock

I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor. This means I can draw on various therapeutic theories to meet my client’s individual needs. I strongly believe that a person-centred approach is at the heart of any good counsellor-client relationship, and is something I strive for with all my clients. Through the use of talking therapy I aim to work towards empowering my clients in their daily lives, by working towards their goals and being able to make positive life changes.

I started my counselling career in a Women’s aid centre working with clients who had suffered both physical and verbal abuse within their relationships. My work included helping my clients to recognise potentially harmful behaviours within their family life and relationships. This was done via the Freedom programme and SODA. when I completed my placement at the Women’s aid centre I moved on to a new position at a local counselling practice working with a broad spectrum of clients presenting with various issues.

My other recent counselling experience is working within a Drug and Alcohol rehab centre. Working with a small and dedicated team of counsellors within the field of rehabilitation. This work involves helping clients to recognise the possible issues within their personal lives that led to the taking of substances.
