Isabelle chefdor MBACP, Counsellor & Supervisor, Individual & Couple Counselling

About me


I am a fully qualified person centred therapist with many years experience. I use an integrative approach using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques and a motivational approach. I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I offer short term or long term therapy and work with individuals and couples.

I work with family issues, depression, stress,  bereavement, trauma, anger, sadness , addiction and abuse. I specialise in relationships, childhood issues, anxiety, self esteem, self confidence and through that; working on strategies to solve and manage these issues so you can find happiness. Alongside my private practice, I work within the NHS and counsel staff who mainly bring work related issues but also personal issues. I also offer relaxation session and deliver resilience and well-being training.

I see myself as a genuine, understanding, empathetic, approachable and non-judgemental person. I would hope these qualities would help build a rapport between yourself and myself. I regularly attend training courses, workshops to learn new skills to maintain a high standard in my counselling.

I am French native meaning that I understand how difficult it is to adapt and build a life in another country, learning to live in a different culture and speak a different language. I am aware of the anxieties and loneliness which can often be experienced in moving to a foreign country
