Tabitha Jones (MBACP)
Hi, I'm Tabitha and I'm a qualified counsellor working in New Mills. I am fully insured and supervised, and a member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and as such work within their Ethical Framework. I work face to face with clients on a short term or long term basis.
Counselling, like people varies and there are lots of different approaches or styles of counselling - it is important that you find one that feels right for you, and can help you get the most out of counselling.
I work in an "integrative" way which means that I'm trained in a number of counselling approaches: Person Centred; Psychodynamic and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) as well as Solution Focused.
I provide a safe, non-judgemental space for you to explore and challenge your difficulties, I will work collaboratively with you, encouraging you to reflect; gaining insight into your strengths and potential, as well as being able to consider and reflect on the things that you may be struggling with.
It is not uncommon to find yourself struggling at different times in your life, and I have experience in working with a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship and family difficulties as well as self esteem & confidence to name a few.
Deciding to start counselling can feel difficult, and I am happy to provide a free telephone consultation so that you can ask me a bit more about how I work, what you can expect and anything else that you feel unsure of. Please email me to arrange this; I will usually be with clients during the daytime so won't be able to reply until the evening
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a diploma in integrative counselling, from the CPCAB (Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body) and have been practicing privately, within the local Primary Care Mental Health Team, and voluntarily for just over 8 years.
I have completed a CPD course at Liverpool John Moores University (JMU), and successfully completed a Post Graduate Course there, and was awarded a post of Honorary Lecturer for the National Training Course for trainee IAPT therapists. I have also undertaken an introductory training course in Cognitive Analytical Therapy (CAT). I am committed to maintaining my professional development and training to make sure that my practice is current and appropriate.
I have experience in co-facilitating group therapy for challenging depression rooted in a Solution-Focused model, as well as a more process driven group focusing on bereavement and am involved in delivering psycho-educational workshops based on CAT principals.
I am just working through an accredited Diploma in Counselling Supervision and am due to complete this in March 2016. I hold an IAPT Supervisor qualification and am experienced in delivering Supervision to PWPs and trainee counsellors as well as providing reflective practice supervision to a range of practitioners supporting clients with a range of complex mental health needs.
