Ask Counselling comprises of a small team of three (Andria, Nicki and Dave) qualified counsellors/psychotherapists of varied and differing specialisms who have united in order to provide a comprehensive service, in which we are dedicated to helping you to attain the quality of satisfying life experiencing and well-being that you would choose to have.
We all three deeply share the belief that counselling and psychotherapy should be centred with the view point and preference of the client, rather than the service defining and becoming directive to the client/s.
We come from varied backgrounds both in life and within the therapeutic field including business, care and support including mental health and disabilities. We have all faced our own life challenges and we’re people too.
Whether working with a singular or multiple referral, we believe that the service provided should be tailored to individual need and be meaningful to those who use it. We understand that modern living and circumstance may make accessing counselling difficult. We therefore, are happy to accommodate your needs and preferences wherever possible including, home visits and weekends. In every day terms we are, “big enough to cope and small enough to still care”, and intend to keep it that way. We chose the name Ask because we believe that it is your ask of us that is the most important
