Elizabeth Drew MBACP
Ross On Wye
From time to time life and its' experiences can feel overwhelming whether these feelings are current or deep rooted in our life story. At times we can find ourselves struggling with the affect of this and yearn for a space and time to simply talk and explore what is happening for us. For a lot of people counselling offers this time and space to look at and reflect on our thoughts and feelings and how they are impacting on our day to day lives, our own emotional and physical wellbeing and those of people around us.
I live in Ross on Wye and offer counselling in my own home. Following the necessary Home Visit Risk Assessment I am also able to offer home visits, as long as you are able to provide a safe, secure and confidential space to work in.
I am a member of the BACP and work to their ethical and moral framework. I hold a Level 5 Btech Dip in Therapeutic Counselling. I have worked with a range of issues including pre and post bereavement, life limiting illness, childhood trauma, self harm, depression and anxiety. I also believe in the power of group work and would be interested in hearing from you if you feel that you would like to work in a group setting with others who are facing similar issues to yourself.
When we meet you will be given a comprehensive counselling contract and we will discuss your personal requirements and ensure that the service I can offer is appropriate for your needs.
I can offer individual counselling, couples counselling, family unit counselling and group work.
I will always endeavour to treat my clients with respect and dignity in a non-judgemental and safe environment. Counselling by its' nature is not advisory and we will always work towards you discovering your own inner and external resources to assist you in finding the best outcome for you.
I undergo monthly supervision and Continued Professional Development in accordance with BACP guidelines.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a graduate of Hereford and Ludlow College and hold a Edexcel Level 5 BTEC Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I currently work both in palliative and life limiting care and in a children and youth counselling service. My training strongly encompassed the ethos of person centred counselling but I would describe myself as a Humanistic Counsellor calling on many theoretical principles to inform my practice, always tailoring this to my client's needs.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Anger management
- Child related issues
- Emotional abuse
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Panic disorder
- Physical abuse
- Relationship issues
I offer an initial free assessment, which will last approximately 30 minutes. My hourly fee is £35.00, payable at the commencement of each session. I would ask that if you wish to cancel or change an appointment you give at least 24 hours notice.
I offer concessions for clients under the age of 16 and students. Please let me know at the point of enquiry if you would like to discuss concessionary fees.
I am happy to be contacted either my telephone or email to discuss your requirements. If you contact me after 6pm or over a weekend please be advised that I will always do my best to reply to you the following working day.
