Emeline Hanson Ad. Dip. PC . (Psychotherapeutic Counsellor)
07393 123 821 / 07393 123 821
I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, trained in Person-centred and Integrative approaches. I am experienced in working therapeutically with individuals, couples having relationship difficulties, teenagers and young children displaying social, emotional and behavioural problems.
Every one of us is an individual, with our own unique views of the world, life and situations. Bearing this in mind, I aim to work with the whole person, not just the issues, in a non - judgmental way to give you the respect and space you need to improve your life. And I tailor the therapy to meet your individual needs.
I am a registered and accredited member of the National Counselling Society, by whose guidelines for safe and ethical practice I abide.
I possess a current DBS check certificate, which supports my eligibility to work safely with young people and vulnerable adults.
I am committed to on-going professional development.
ISSUES ADDRESSED INCLUDE:
Anger and frustration, grief, separation and loss, depression, anxiety, panic disorder, general dissatisfaction with life, low self-esteem, relationship problems, career problems, bullying, identity /sexuality issues, racial issues.
COUNSELLING APPROACHES AND THEORIES USED:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Therapeutic Art and Play
Emotional Freedom Tapping (EFT)
Additionally, I incorporate breathing and relaxation exercises, and guided visualisation where appropriate, to help improve clients’ state of mind and aid therapeutic progress.
WORK WITH CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE
45-minute counselling sessions for children and young people can take place in a local private therapy room or it can be arranged for me to provide them at the child's school.
Teenagers face a range of anger, stress and anxiety-provoking issues in the course of their daily lives. This can be caused by anything from exam stress, peer pressure and identity issues, to family or relationship problems, low self-esteem and bullying. Usually, a listening ear, empathy and freedom to speak in a safe and non-judgemental environment is the remedy to help process the negative feelings, build self-confidence and move forward in their lives.
Younger children often find it difficult to clearly identify how they are feeling and why, or to articulately express themselves in words, and therefore negative emotions can build up and manifest in disruptive or reclusive behaviours. With this in mind, younger clients are offered therapy through art and creative play, to help them convey how they are feeling.
A range of toys and art materials, including a sand tray are available to use in session, so that children may work through their issues and express themselves through creative play, story-telling and art, eliminating the need to rely on words. Therapy sessions also serve as a space for the child to fully be themselves, away from the restrictions or expectations of their usual environment, helping them to find their voice, build self-confidence and self-awareness, and see things from a new perspective.
My therapeutic support has helped many individuals to overcome issues that had been having a negative impact on them, and to move forward in their lives.
