My name is Steve Hockett and the counselling service I provide is called Alton Counselling Services. I am a member of BACP. I qualified in 1996 and have been providing a professional service since then. I have an Advanced Diploma in Counselling. In 2008 I qualified as an Adoption Counsellor registered through Barnardo’s. This enables me to work with birth families, adoptees and adoptive parent(s). I practice in central Southend with close-by parking and easy access by bus and train.
