Debbie Schroetter - Children, young person and adult Counsellor.
Who am I?
I am a warm and welcoming Counsellor with person Centred Theory at the core of my work. I have experience in working with children, young people and adults. I have a clear DBS check, up-to-date training in safeguarding, with experience working creatively with children and young people in a number of different settings including schools, as well as experience in counselling adults with a range of issues.
What is Counselling
Counselling offers the opportunity to explore issues in a private setting with no other role in your life. Many people find that talking things over with a trained Counsellor can offer a new perspective. Counselling is not the same as giving advice. Counselling is a joint process that requires you motivation and active involvement.
All counsellors operate to a code of ethics to ensure that what is shared with them remains confidential to enable the development of trust.
How can I help
As a Counsellor I will seek to help you focus on, and understand more clearly the issues that concern you. I will respect your own values, choices and lifestyle and work together with you towards making choices or changes that are right for you.
Some of the issues that might bring people to counselling are:
Anxiety, worry, stress and depression
Relationship difficulties e.g. affairs, separation and divorce
Work related issues e.g redundancy, bullying
Anger Management and communication e.g. arguments or not talking
Bereavement and other losses
Difficult childhood memories
Life transitions e.g new baby, child leaving home, retirement
Low confidence or self esteem
Where I work
I work from home with an option of working in schools if this is felt appropriate when working with children and young people.
