Rochelle Gould PG Dip MBACP (Accred)
Millway Centre For Health
I am a qualified counsellor accredited to the BACP, offering support and understanding in a confidential and non-judgemental environment. I work with a wide range of issues including alcohol and drug addiction, bereavement, depression, feelings of low self-esteem, sexual abuse, relationship issues. I also work with issues related to disability and special needs including autism and asperger's, and have experience of working with carers.
I work face to face with individuals - adults and young people - and with couples. Each session lasts 50 minutes (60 mins for couples) and the number of sessions can be long or short term. I feel it important to address each client's needs individually and am happy to discuss any worries, expectations, or goals for counselling. The first session is a time to discuss the most helpful way of working together, with no obligation to continue; clients can book further appointments if they wish.
I have a private practice, within a local alternative healthcare practice, providing a discreet and relaxing space in which to make sense of difficult feelings.
Appointments are available weekdays or evenings.
I am happy to discuss concessionary rates for counselling students, voluntary workers, carers and those working with disability.
Skype and telephone sessions also available.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an accredited and registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and adhere to the guidelines of their code of ethics and good practice. I also have a Primary Certificate in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)
I graduated from the University of Hertfordshire with a Post Graduate Diploma in Person-Centred and Psychodynamic Counselling. I work integratively using Psychodynamic, Person-Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Brief Therapy within my practice, ensuring the most appropriate approach for any client.
I am a registered provider with BUPA, Pruhealth, Aviva and Simplyhealth insurance companies.
I have extensive experience in bereavement and loss, having worked in a hospice for many years, providing support at such a difficult time for many people. In addition, I have worked with many clients bringing a range of issues, including those battling with addiction, particularly with drugs and alcohol; I have also worked with relationship issues including separation and divorce and family problems.
Anxiety is a common issue and one that I work with, often using cognitive behavioural therapy, looking at coping mechanisms and strategies which can be used independently and continuously.
I also work with the charity Mencap, whereby I co-ordinate a holiday playscheme for children with disability, offering respite and support to their families/carers; I also have experience of working with adults with special needs.
