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?”
Carl R Rogers.



Life can get better 


 I can help you

I am Mandy and can help you overcome your emotional worries and concerns.

After losing family members I know how hard it is to come to terms with your loss and grief  which can bring depression and anxiety. Sometimes people self-medicate with drugs alcohol or food, this is where I can help you and identify and work on these or any issues you maybe experiencing.
