Pauline Summers UKRCP Reg MBACP (Accred)
Hello, I'm Pauline and I've been a counsellor for 20 years.
I offer counselling sessions in Rawtenstall in Rossendale. It's easy to find and there is free parking right outside.
My way of working is to listen to you carefully so that I understand fully what has brought you here. Then we will work together to decide what you want from counselling. The number of sessions depends on what you want and whether you feel you are achieving that. In other words, you are in charge.
I have experience of working with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, bereavement, anger management, relationship problems and work related issues.
Problems do seem overwhelming at times and counselling is about helping you find your own answers, but with someone to help you on the journey. A bit like climbing a mountain, hard at first, but then its gets easier the more you go on and gain strength and determination to get to the top!
Finding the right counsellor can be daunting but feel free to ring me to discuss whether counselling is for you, or to book a session.
I also offer counselling on the Internet. Counselling online can be a highly effective and practical alternative to face to face counselling. You can choose to have counselling by email, or have a "live" session. Your privacy is protected by using encryption and a secure email website. Don't worry if you are not familiar with some of these things, I will guide you through the technology.
Whether online or face to face, I aim to work in a non-judgemental and open way to help you move forward positively in life. I see my role as a therapist to be alongside you on your journey and I will not judge you nor advise you.
I also offer clinical supervision to trainee counsellors and qualified counsellors. Please get in touch if you are interested in me as a possible supervisor. We can arrange to meet and discuss what your needs are and how I work.
