Hannah Smith

Hello, my name is Hannah, I offer face to face or online counselling for individuals. I appreciate seeking therapy can feel like a daunting process but hopefully my profile will help you decide if I am the right therapist for you. 

The Therapy 

Distress can arise in our lives for many reasons. We all have different biographies and circumstances that are unique to us and for this reason, therapeutic needs will be very different and individual. I passionately believe that therapy is for everyone, and I want you to feel safe, validated and supported throughout. I am warm, down to earth and trustworthy. I work in a person-centred way, because I am interested in getting to know you, not just the difficulties you are experiencing. As our work together progresses, and in collaboration with you, I may bring to the therapy the different theoretical ideas and practical insights I believe will be helpful to you. I aim to provide you with a space where you can make sense of things and understand yourself better.
