Delia Warmington, Registered Member MBACP.
As human beings we are meaning making creatures and we like to make sense of things. Understanding our lives, responsibilities and how we can live more fully is part and parcel of that, but sometimes life can seem like a giant dot-to-dot puzzle with all the numbers missing. Try as you might, you cannot join them up to make a picture you recognise and understand. Counselling can help put the numbers back in and enable you to join up the dots into a picture of your life that has meaning for you.
I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor, operating from my practice in the Purewell Therapy Centre, Purewell, Christchurch. I can work with a range of issues including depression, anxiety and self-esteem. 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.
I work with young people and am currently taking a diploma in counselling children and adolescents with The Iron Mill.
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 to talk. I trained as an Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, drawing on Person-Centred Therapy, Gestalt Therapy and some Transactional Analysis. I also have a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapeutic Skills and Theory, so I also use some of that where appropriate.
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.
