Gini Baber PG Dip Couple Counselling MBACP (Registered)
I am a Relate-trained counsellor with over 12 years’ experience of working with couples and individuals. I am based in Ashley Down and offer daytime and evening appointments, including weekends.
it may be that you are experiencing difficulties in your couple relationship, such as frequent arguments, poor communication or that you are dealing with the aftermath of an affair. Or perhaps you are looking for support to help you through a bereavement or relationship breakup or are looking for strategies to help you cope with depression and anxiety. Maybe you've recently had a baby and are feeling isolated and struggling to cope or are finding living with teenagers or stepchildren challenging.
Whatever your difficulty, my aim is to offer you a safe, empathic place in which to explore your issues and develop lasting strategies to bring about change. I use an integrative approach and a range of techniques.
Initial contact is by phone or email. If I feel that I may be able to help you we will agree a time for us to meet and discuss your needs and to assess whether the work will be long-term or short-term. In some cases it may be that your needs would be better met by another counsellor, in which case I will do my best to make a suitable referral.
I am a registered member of BACP. I attend monthly supervision and I am fully insured.
