Denise Spinney

Counsellor helping people make sense of their thoughts, behaviours and feelings through Brief Therapy, Counselling and Life Coaching.

About me

I believe it is a rare and valuable experience to have the time and space to speak without being advised, criticised or judged. And for what you say to be met with compassion and acceptance. This is what I offer, for as long as you need.

Whatever you bring, I meet you where you are. I have found this experience holds the key to change: the change you seek, at your pace and in your own way. I offer you my curiosity, noticing, warmth and understanding. I help you make sense of the thoughts, behaviours and feelings that seem to rule you so that in time you feel you get to choose how you feel, decide what to act on.

Counsellor Denise Spinney

What I offer

Whether you are struggling with a lifelong issue, a new and challenging situation or a general sense of something not quite right, we can find a process that works for you.

We can focus on one issue/situation (Brief Therapy), devise a plan to make a decision/transition (Life Coaching) or explore long held thoughts/feelings/behaviours (open ended counselling).

Sessions can be expansive, full of questions, silences, humour, frustration, delight. There may be lightbulb moments, things slotting into place, or a gradual falling away of problems only noticed when we stop and look back. We find what works for you: structure, creativity, leading the way or being guided; talking or doing.
