Andrea Rose MBACP Dip Counselling
Steven James Counselling
6 North Road
From the moment we are born, every interaction and experience we encounter with others help to mould and form the person we become today. We learn and adapt accordingly to each individual in the best way we know how at that moment in time. We develop coping mechanisms from negative experiences and often gain comfort, contentment, love and trust from a positive environment.
I cannot emphasise enough on how much our past experiences impact on us now in the present day. It not only affects the way in which we interact with others but how we also feel about ourselves, our self esteem, confidence and self worth. Our coping mechanisms, patterns of behaviour, past experiences and even our thought processes that may have once helped us cope with difficult situations may simply be holding us back from a more positive future and instead bring confusion, stress and depression as well as many other negative feelings. In the case of bereavement we may also be desperately clinging on to the past, unable to cope with the present and the loss of a loved one.
This is where counselling can really help. I work as an Integrative, Humanistic counsellor, using approaches such as Gestalt, CBT, Person Centred and Transactional Analysis to help understand our past, our behaviour and relationships, accepting the things we cannot change, to enjoy today and look forward to a more positive tomorrow.
I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP) and, therefore adhere to their code of ethics, safety and confidentiality. I have worked with all different age groups over the years and am able to work flexible hours, each session is tailored to the individual.
