About Small Steps Counselling Service

Hi, my name is Colette and I run Small Steps Counselling Service - a professional but personal counselling service.

I am an accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist and a member of The National Counselling Society. I adhere to their code of ethics. I am fully insured to work as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist.

My aim is to work with you to help you take steps to making a positive difference to your life, working towards your aim. By looking at things from a slightly different perspective and using positivity, you can become empowered to take back control of your life. Working with you, I would provide guidance and support and together, we would work towards taking steps to changing any negative thoughts into positive thoughts.

As a Counsellor, I use an integrative and collaborative approach ensuring a wide range of approaches to suit the needs of the client. Issues you might come to counselling with include anxiety, depression, low self esteem, low self confidence, parenting concerns, loss and many more.

I am based in Hardwicke, Gloucester (close to the M5 junction) providing easy access to Cheltenham and Stroud. I also have access to a room in Cheltenham if that is more convenient for you.

My training, work experience and any achievement

My background is in health care, working with parents to work towards building positive relationships with their children.Much of the work involves deep reflection opening up a pathway to improve and build on family relationships.

I have 10 years experience working with families building on and improving relationships between parent and child.. I now specialise in working with families where the child has challenging behaviours due to an additional need.

I am also experienced in working privately with clients, providing a confidential and professional counselling service. I work collaboratively with clients, and this forms the basis of all the counselling and parenting work I do. I do not "teach" but work with families and clients to improve outcomes.

I am an accredited member of The Counselling Society.
