Welcome and thank you for visiting my website.
PLEASE NOTE: With effect from 1st January 2020 I will be taking a sabbatical of one year. During this time I will be unavailable for either counselling or supervision sessions. I plan to return in February 2021.
Let me introduce myself, my name is Andrea Hawkins, I have been a practicing counsellor in Gloucestershire for over 20 years and I have also been working as a counselling supervisor since 2002. I am an accredited and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and follow their ethical framework. I also receive monthly supervision for my work, which means my work is regularly reviewed to ensure you receive the best possible service.
My counselling and supervision practice is based in Abbeydale, Gloucester. This is within easy reach of the city and it's surrounding areas, Cheltenham, Stroud, Nailsworth and a longer but straightforward journey from Tewkesbury and the Forest of Dean.
I am an integrative counsellor. This means I have chosen to integrate techniques from the person centred and psychodynamic therapeutic traditions into my counselling model. To find out more, take a look at the 'About Counselling' page on this website. I work one-to-one with adults, either on an open-ended basis or for an agreed period of time, with the aim of supporting you to live your life to your fullest potential and enabling you to make authentic life choices.
My intention is to meet you open-heartedly and respectfully and provide you with a safe, comfortable and discreet environment in which you can begin to share your problems and concerns.

I also work as a supervisor, and enjoy working with and supporting counsellors to develop their practice.
