Corinne BEUZELIN - Registered MBACP Counsellor
East Riding Of Yorkshire
Hello and welcome to my page.
I am an experienced Registered MBACP (British Association for Counselling and
Psychotherapy) therapist who provides counselling for a wide range of issues.
I also counsel individuals with Autism and Asperger' s syndrome as well as their parents, carers and partners.
I practice from Hull town centre.
About Counselling and the way I work :
I provide one to one counselling in a caring, safe, relaxed and non-judgmental environment in which you will be able to talk freely, explore difficult feelings, and resolve problems.
I can help you with :
- relationship issues
- panic attacks
- physical, mental and sexual abuse
- work issues
- alcohol abuse
- domestic violence situations
- low self-esteem
and much more.
Do you feel stuck ?
Do you feel unfulfilled ?
Are things getting on top of you ?
Has getting up in the morning and dealing with daily tasks become difficult ?
Maybe you are or have been through something that you find difficult to talk about with friends or family?
Are you feeling alone and misunderstood ?
Do you repeat destructive patterns of behaviour ?
Has coping with stress become too difficult ?
Have you been betrayed by somebody ?
Have you hit a crisis like a divorce or bereavement and you feel angry, lost, anxious or depressed ?
Or maybe you simply want to know yourself better ?
Sometimes our coping mechanisms break down and we start to struggle with different areas of our life ;work, relationships, family life, social life. we can start developing low mood, anxiety, low confidence etc...
I can help you make sense of what is happening with the aim to get you back on track and regain control of your life or experience a fresh start.
I work in an integrative way.It means I use different models of Counselling. At the beginning of our work we will agree a plan of action based on what will work best for you and the problems you want to resolve.
So for example I may give you practical ways of dealing with your difficulties as well as finding out why it happened in the first place.
This way of working will allow an understanding of what is happening and offer long term solutions. This will also equip you to deal with any future problems should they arise.
Counselling could help you achieve the significant changes in your life that you are aiming for.
we spend money and effort on different areas of our life but often forgetting to invest into the most important thing : ourself.
If you want more information about this way of working and whether it could help you, please do not hesitate to ring me. You can also e-mail or text me.
Please feel free to visit my my Facebook page where I put interesting quotes and articles that you might find useful.
YOU AND I, WORKING TOGETHER
Creating an environment in which you will feel heard and respected is very important to me and our work together. What Counselling aims to offer is a place where you can find yourself, express what you want without fear. This is only possible if I walk next to you on this journey and you feel cared for and safe to open up regardless of what issues you might bring or your background or ethnic origin. I would feel very privileged to be able to walk this path with you.
LENGTH OF COUNSELLING
We can keep our work open-ended, which means there is no number of sessions set. We will review our work regularly and when you decide you want to end we will then work towards an ending over 2 or 3 sessions.
If you feel you want to deal with a specific issue only, over a set time, then we can agree on a number of sessions from the beginning. This can be reviewed closer to our ending date and if you feel you want more time and more sessions that's absolutely fine.
About me :
Now let me tell you a little bit about me and how and why i became a counsellor.
I worked for the NHS as a care assistant, looking after elderly people with Alzheimer and dementia.
After moving to Gloucestershire, one of my children was diagnosed with Autism which prompted me to set up and run a support group for parents and carers of special needs children and young people.
I am fluent in both English and French and taught French for a while. I encountered different people from all walks of life who were learning the language for loads of different reasons. I really enjoyed this experience.
Having faced some complex and challenging events through my life, I got to a point when i started to struggle with my everyday life, experiencing depression and panic attacks. Although anti-depressants helped, i wanted a more long-lasting solution. I seeked Counselling and I gained so much from the process that I decided to do my training and become a counsellor to be able to deliver similar support to others.
I have been on both side of counselling, as a client and as a counsellor, and can understand how difficult it is to make the decision of having counselling. I believe it takes a lot of courage to ask for help and really respect this.
Having read a bit about me, you will understand why I hold an interest in Counselling individuals on the Autism spectrum and Counselling parents, carers and partners of individuals with Autism.
Using my personal and professional experience, I aim to help you talk about and make sens of the feelings you may be experiencing.
Finding out that your child, relative or partner has autism can be a confusing, scary and isolating experience and the day- to- day care certainly brings regular challenges. Being able to talk honestly and without being judged about what you are going through can help.
I can also help individuals with Autism and Asperger's syndrome. Autism can make a person's daily life a challenge,social interaction can be difficult for example. Feeling that your are different and don't fit in can bring fear, isolation, bullying and low self-esteem in a world where disability is still accepted with difficulty. Talking about those feelings can help. Finding strategies to cope with problems you encounter in your daily life could also be helpful. It is said that 'when you meet one person with autism you meet one person with Autism'. I strongly believe this which is why I will respect you as a person and not treat you like diagnosis.
I also put regular tips and articles on Asperger's and Autism on my business Facebook. Please press the F symbol at the top of this page to like and access it.
So what's next ?
If you feel that counselling could help you move forward, then give me a call for a chat, get more information with no obligation or make an appointment. You can also e-mail me or text if you prefer.
If I am unable to take your call, please leave a message. I will aim at ringing you back as quickly as possible.
PLEASE NOTE : I am not qualified to give a diagnosis of Autism. I do not counsel individuals under 16.
