Counselling - Why Now?
if your new to therapy it may already conjure up so many questions. I am a professional Counsellor who offers counselling sessions to clients who have come to stage in their lives where now is the time they want to explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviour in relation to a problem in their lives, which may help to answer some questions.
Initially, I will see you for an assessment session for us to meet face-to-face in a safe, confidential, non-judgmental environment.
I have life experience and experience of working with clients who present with a range of problems and difficulties in their lives, for example;
- fear, vulnerability
- loss, bereavement.
My specialist field is loss and bereavement which can be an issue in life that can be frightening and shocking but can be explored in counselling to enable people to move forward with a new self-awareness.
I offer short and long-term counselling sessions which can be assessed in the initial session depending on a client's individual presenting problem.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained to be a professional Counsellor at the Central School of Counselling and Therapy.
The training involved studying and understanding many theoretical approaches to therapy, for example, psychodynamic, person-centred to name just a couple. Understanding theory is one thing but putting it into practice is another and communicating it in a professional setting is the challenge of counselling,
I applied the theoretical approaches to practical training within the course setting with other trainee and qualified counsellors and gained knowledge and insight and confidence from this experience. I applied and was accepted on a professional placement with the natioanal mental health charity MIND where I worked with a diverse community of clients with a variety of mental health issues.
This was supervised and recorded and became the necessary case studies for my final qualification. At MIND I introduced the assessment sesssions - a system that matched a client to a suitable counsellor with relevant experience of their problem.
Since qualifying in the year 2000 I have worked both in organisations, for example, Brook Advisory Service, and private practice.
I am also a trained, qualifed and experienced Holistic Therapist - working with the whole person, in terms of Mind, Body and Beliefs.
