Paul Roberts Embodied Psychotherapeutic Counselling RMBACP
Nr Castle Cary
I admire your bravery at making a step on the journey of promoting your emotional well-being and addressing your concerns, my aim is to make you feel safe and offer a therapeutic space.
It all about You. As you approach the "counselling Directory" I am aware that you alone understand you reasons for doing so. You are unique, so to find out about what you need to explore I would suggest a sort appraisal so that you can create for us both understanding of your situation. I offer, for free, up to half an hour on the phone to do this. This time is to clarify joint understanding and we can develop a sense of how we might work together and hear each others voice.
We will then be able to discuss and assess the best way for you to engage with what you have brought during this half hour.
You may then book an initial session and assessment where we can further deepen a joint understanding of your needs, this session is likely include to some Integrative therapy and may be enough to help you move forwards. We can also clarify your counselling requirements leading to your choice of ways forwards. Through this process you can get a feel for how it is to work with myself, it is important that you find a counsellor that you feel comfortable working with. My hope is that you feel empowered to make choices that satisfy your needs.
Please send me an E mail, phone or text me to let me know that you would like some contact. I can then ring you back and we can talk.
My aim ongoing; is to offer a compassionate counselling relationship to help you with the challenges and difficult emotions that life throws at you. Transformation is possible when the needs are approached with empathy, gently uncovered and then explored with the help of another person. I offer a safe, confidential and available space in which you can bring immediate or long term challenges.
