Hi, and welcome to Wanda Howell Counselling. My name is Wanda and I am a fully qualified (DipHE in Counselling, BSc Hons in Psychology) and insured Counselling Psychologist in training and Counsellor with over 10 years of experience counselling young people and individuals.
Sometimes life can become very difficult for us and we may feel like we need to talk to somebody who is impartial and can offer a listening ear, without judging us or making us feel like our problems are not important.
Perhaps you are feeling lost or unsure of what to do next? Maybe life has been really difficult lately and you just need some support to talk through your options? Or, perhaps you have a long-standing issue that you really want to get to the bottom of and resolve? Whatever you want to talk about, therapy can help you see clearly through some dark times and help us to work through the stresses of everyday life.
I have worked within the NHS, delivering one to one sessions with clients. I have a private practice based in Swindon, Wiltshire and I also worked as a Volunteer Counsellor for Cotswold Counselling Service in Cirencester, Gloucestershire. I have experience working with a vast range of issues, including addiction, abuse, loss, depression, anxiety, pre and postnatal issues with parents, gender identity issues, sexuality difficulties, adultery, job loss, stress, depression, suicidal thoughts, relationship issues and many other areas.
I work from an Integrative approach, which means I use a number of Psychological techniques during our counselling and therapy work together. So, whether it is CBT work you are looking for, or a chance to talk about important issues in your past, perhaps Counselling and Therapy could help you; please do get in touch to have an informal chat about what you are looking for.
Although I am currently working online only, due to the pandemic, my practice is based in East Swindon, easily accessible by the number 13/14 bus and free, on street parking is available. I am available for long term or short term Counselling and I have a limited number of places for Online Counselling. Please contact me for further details.
