Christine Cooper MBACP (Accred). Counsellor
Are you feeling depressed, anxious or been affected by a traumatic event?
Would it help to talk to someone?
We all experience difficult life events that cause us distress and worry and we sometimes don't know how to deal with them.Supportive family and friends can be helpful but are usually biased in their opinions.
Talking to a counsellor gives you the freedom to be honest about what is happening in your life and allows you the opportunity to find new or different ways to deal with these difficulties and make appropriate changes.
As your counsellor, my goal will be to provide the freedom and guide you on a journey of awareness and understanding by being genuine and not making judgements. This will empower you to identify, understand and address your personal struggles.
My own journey compelled me to train as a counsellor and fostered my belief that if the right conditions are provided, every individual has the ability to bring about positive changes in their life.
The foundation of my training began in Person Centred theory and now includes elements of Cognitive behavioural, Compassion focussed and Solution focussed therapy to give me the opportunity to offer individuals alternative routes to take on their journey.
I also offer EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which has proved very effective in dealing with trauma and PTSD.
I am a BACP accredited counsellor. I have more than 10 years experience and have worked in Mind and NHS trusts.
I also have experience providing support as a Specialist mentor to students with mental and emotional difficulties.
I work within the BACP ethical framework, receive regular Supervision and undertake Continuous Professional Development. I hold a current enhanced DBS certificate and have professional liability insurance.
