Mandy Hedges Counselling

Registered BACP Counsellor

A very warm welcome to my website.


I am Mandy Hedges, a fully qualified experienced, compassionate counsellor.

       “Sometimes life can be difficult and throws us challenges that we find hard to deal with alone.
        You may find you need someone to talk to and explore your thoughts and feelings.
        Friends and family can help, but sometimes can be too close and we may not want to worry them”.
        Counselling can offer you a safe, non- judgemental, confidential place to explore the things that maybe troubling you.
        Talking about your problems with someone independent before they get out of hand can be the first step to change.

Some people contact me even before a problem arises. Others get in touch as soon as they become aware of a problem and, for others, it’s when the problem has become too much to cope with on their own.
I hope to provide you with some answers to any questions you may have about counselling or me on my website.
"Am I living in a way which is deeply satisfying to me,
and which truly expresses me?”

My approach

I am trained as a Person Centred Counsellor. Put simply, this means that I believe that the relationship between client and counsellor is fundamental to facilitate change and I aim to be as understanding, accepting and as genuine as I can be.
Your experience is yours alone and as a person centred counsellor my aim is to walk beside you, helping you find  your own answers.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) delivered within the Person Centred Framework is also offered.


I see individuals and couples in my  private comfortable room in Stanton on the business park, where confidentiality is assured and free parking is available. I also see clients at Heritage Beauty, Nowton, Bury St Edmund's, here there is also free parking and disabled access.


The issues I work with  include:

Depression            Anxiety                                    Self-confidence         Stress

Self-esteem           Bereavement and loss          Health problems       Eating disorders

Marriage and Relationship difficulties             Communication problems          

Uncertainty at home or at work                         Dealing with conflict at home or at work

Trauma                    Sexual abuse                        Life transitions

Sometimes clients come who wish to learn more about themselves.

                                                                                This list is not exhaustive.

     I welcome clients who come for any reason and look forward to working with you

     to help you find your own solutions.
