Delia Warmington, MBACP. Adults, Children and Adolescents.
We all struggle from time to time and there are many reasons to seek help from a counsellor. It can be long term problems that have been there all your life, a current crisis or maybe even a feeling that you want to change something but you're not sure what. Whatever you want to bring to sessions will be handled in a confidential, non-judgemental way and I aim to provide a safe and warm space in which you can explore your feelings and find a way forward.
To begin we would have a 30 minute assessment where you can sketch out what has prompted you to seek counselling. This assessment is free. During this, we can arrange further sessions to take place weekly. Usually this would be the same day and time every week, however, if you work shifts or any other variable work/life pattern I can accommodate that. I suggest that we work together for four sessions and then you can decide how you want to proceed. This can be arranging for a fixed number of sessions, having no fixed end date (open ended), or even changing the frequency to every fortnight.
I am trained as an humanistic integrative counsellor, an approach which recognises that there are significant connections between all approaches to counselling. It accepts that different clients have different needs and believes that no one single method is sufficient. The approaches that I draw on are the Person-centred approach, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis, and I am also trained in CBT.
I am qualified to work with adults, children and adolescents.
I work from my quiet office in the Purewell Therapy Centre, Purewell, Christchurch. I have worked with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, self-esteem and relationships. I have also spent the last four years as a care and support worker with elderly people and disabled people, and am able to help talk through any issues involving care and support, including end of life.
I am mobile, so if mobility is a problem and you are not able to come to me, I can come to you. We can also talk over Skype or FaceTime.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I work to their guidelines and code of ethics. I am also signed up to their voluntary register.
