Ian Stockbridge is the founder and lead counsellor at Hope Therapy and Mindfulness Services. 

Finding the 'right' counsellor or therapist can seem pretty daunting for many. However, I'm a great believer that the best counsellor for you, is about experience but also about who you connect with. So, if you want a quick chat on the phone then, by all means, get in touch.   (please don't be put off if you get an answerphone - just leave a brief message and you’ll be called back, usually within a couple of hours).

As well as working with many clients in a private capacity, Hope Therapy also offers organisational support throughout the UK. We can assist you with your organisational welfare and stress management needs, by offering Occupational Counselling, Workplace Mediation, Critical Incident Support, Training workshops and Executive Coaching.

I have extensive experience of working at Board Level in organisational settings as well as being a fully qualified Counsellor with a Degree in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which enables me to apply a holistic view of Corporate demands in the workplace.
