Linda Williams MBACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist
01509 210426 / 07929495923
Hi my name is Linda and I have 17 years experience as a qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist and supervisor. I work from my private practice in Coalville, which is close to most bus routes from the surrounding villages and 15 mins by car from Loughborough and Ashby. Outreach counselling is also available for those clients who are finding it difficult to leave their homes.
I adhere by the BACP ethical framework for good practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I offer clinical supervision and placements for trainee counsellors and qualified counsellors needing to increase their hours for training or accreditation. The placements for counsellors are working in colleges with students aged 16 to 19 +. and placements for counselling employees in local authority.
I am experienced in supervising qualified counsellors/psychotherapists, Youth workers and employees working in educational settings and in voluntary organizations.
It takes courage to seek counselling for the very first time but it is also a step forward towards a positive change.
It is a part of our human nature and we all need the experience of being in meaningfull relationships. Sometimes these relationships are difficult to develope and maintain leaving us frustrated and confused. Sometimes these relationships breakdown and we end up feeling very alone.
Counselling can provide a relationship and a safe place to explore issues from the past and the present. Changing how we think can change both how we behave and our emotional experience. This in turn can help you to make positive choices and life changing decisions towards a more healthier way of being.
The counselling I offer can be open ended where the client can move at their own pace in completing the therapy or short term where the client is supported over 4 to 6 weeks on focussing and goal setting to achieve positive outcomes.
