Counselling is a talking based therapy.  During a counselling session you use time set aside by you and a counsellor to look at what has brought you to counselling.

We have a number of different counsellors, and there are a number of different types of counselling offered at Beech Tree Clinic.

Kathy Black  Kathy  works with children, young people and adults. She enjoys working with a wide variety of issues including (but not limited to) anxiety, depression, stress, relationship difficulties, pain management, grief and loss, body image issues, self-esteem and trauma (including complex trauma).

Kathy has experience in working in many different settings, such as schools, youth centres, and holistic clinics.  She is a trained Relax Kids Coach and   runs relaxation groups for children, young people and adults.

Currently she sees children for therapy sessions in secondary school and has worked with children in therapy from aged 11 to late teens.

Quotes'I really enjoyed my massage by Karen and will definitely be back'

'I have been receiving treatment from Jean every month or so for around 3 years. Her attentive and intuitive approach feels like deep healing from a friend. I thoroughly endorse Jean's skill and experience and I wouldn't go anywhere else for this sort of therapeutic massage' Janice

'I feel lighter and stress free'

'I feel I have managed to get through the last few very tough years only with Jean's help and support. The conventional treatment has been necessary for me, but the herbs and supplements have helped me back to much better health.'
