Jim Webster Registered Member MBACP
Seeing a Counsellor for the first time can feel daunting and you may feel hesitant about sharing personal information with a complete stranger. I fully understand these feelings and I can offer you a safe, quiet and undisturbed space for you to come and talk about any concerns or worries you may have in a confidential, respectful, non-judgemental and empathic environment, while maintaining safe, professional boundaries.
I work from my home and I also offer "one to one" home counselling sessions, all counselling sessions are for one hour; in your first session you can talk about your reasons for choosing counselling and if counselling is right for you and if we can work together. Morning, afternoon and evening appointments are available, together with some weekends.
Counselling may help with personal relationships and family issues, child related issues, separation and divorce, low mood, anxiety, abuse, trauma and depression and may also help you to become more relaxed. Talking with a Counsellor may help to give you more awareness and understanding and provide help and support and encourage you to develop confidence in your own ability to help yourself, and may provide extra support outside your network of family and friends.
Counselling is a confidential talking therapy and may be able to help you become more aware and understanding of your thoughts, behaviours, feelings, moods and emotions about a particular situation or event in your life, from the past, present or future.
As a Registered Member MBACP; British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy I work to the BACP Ethical Framework.
I will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have about counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience
I can offer both Person-Centred Counselling to help you try to come to terms with your thoughts, feelings and emotions about something that may be troubling you from your past, present or future.
And Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), which can try to help you recognise and become more aware of your behaviours, thoughts, feelings, moods and emotions about a situation or particular event in your life.
After several years of seeing clients, I believe Counselling can provide a unique, beneficial and sometimes necessary additional support for a client at a time of great change, upheaval and uncertainty in their life. Many clients have said to me, that coming to see a counsellor wasn't quite what they had expected and that it had helped them in many different ways.
I hold a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling, an HND in CBT and a Diploma in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and I work from my home.
I attend regular monthly Supervision of my client work and hold Professional Insurance and I continue to build upon my professional knowledge and experience by attending Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events and courses; such as a Certificate in Introduction to Schema Therapy.
