Diana Rollanson-Williams MBACP
It's good to talk..... sometimes you just need to find space to clear your head and find your own solution, with someone listening, prompting, clarifying and sometimes challenging you on the way.
I create a space that promotes encouragement and healing to find a way forward in your life from where you feel stuck, anxious, powerless, frightened, sad and oh so many other emotions.
Being with you on your journey to discover where you are, where you want to be and help you reveal the authentic you is my genuine pleasure.
Using my skills to create a warm therapeutic space to support you as an individual and work through what issues you bring but also to support you in discovering the solutions you have within, identifying new ways of being and what to focus on means that you are able to practically address your challenges.
The way I work creates exploratory space to look at what is being manifested and identify the true issue, then to work with bringing about some resolution and decisions on how to address the issue which might not always be quite what you expected but it will be yours.
I use all my skills, knowledge and experience for your benefit which means I work in an integrative style combining, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person Centred, Transactional Analysis and Solution Focused models to work with you as well as some visioning and drawing where needed.

Confidentiality is important to the counselling relationship and everything that takes place in each session is confidential and non-judgmental. As a member of the BACP I also work to their ethical guidelines.
The length of time you stay in counselling depends on your individual needs.Sessions may be short-term (eight sessions), medium term (24 sessions) or open-ended. Deeper rooted problems requiring forensic work may require longer term counselling, while some issues can be addressed in fewer sessions.
In the first session I work with you to get an overview of the issue and explore your expectations about counselling and ask any questions you may have about working with me. We establish the frequency of sessions (usually weekly/fortnightly) and I contract with you for a minimum of 8 sessions. We will also agree your fee and set out how to cancel or change sessions.
Each session last for 50 minutes.
