Heather Shipley, CBT and Emotional Therapeutic Counsellor DipFETC MFETC MNCS
Lifeways Therapy Centre
Stratford Upon Avon
Friendly, emphatic, calm and supportive. I truly believe that talking and creative therapies will help you experience a more positive outlook on life.
Hello and welcome. I am a therapist who is experienced, accredited, registered, insured and supervised. I love being able to help my clients understand why they are feeling like they do and working together to make improvements in their overall wellbeing. I work with clients experiencing a range of issues including: anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, bereavement and relationship difficulties.
My practice is totally focussed on meeting your goals. I work with tools from both Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Emotional Therapeutic Counselling to be able to help you with short and long-term concerns. Sometimes when we are experiencing strong emotions or negative thought processes, talking to an experienced therapist can help make sense of why you may be feeling that way.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a short-term goals focused therapy. By changing our negative thought patterns we can change the way we think and feel.
Emotional Therapeutic Counselling (ETC)
A key aspect of ETC is the range of talking and creative techniques used to assist you to both recognise and release painful feelings, in an appropriate manner.
Please get in touch for a friendly chat to see how I may help you or view my website: www.hshipleytherapy.co.uk, 07803 011415 or email@example.com.
Appointments are available all week, during the day (including weekends). I work entirely at your pace and you book the sessions when you are ready (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc).

June 2017 An Article in The Guardian
For survivors and the bereaved, it’s practical support and empathy that are needed now.
The importance of waiting until grief counselling is acceptable to survivors was also underlined by Heather Shipley, a cognitive behavioural therapist and therapeutic counsellor working with grief and loss. “Right now these people just need time,” she said on Saturday. “Counselling can be fantastic. But people need to be in a place where they feel OK about speaking to someone first.
