Pauline Crame BA (Hons) Social Science MBACP
Hi, my name is Pauline. I decided to train as a counsellor after being on the receiving end and realising how beneficial it had been for me.
I am trained in Person-Centred Counselling and currently work in this capacity at Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre with refugees who are escaping very difficult conditions and have suffered multipule loss.
In addition to this I work as a mentor with students who are physically and/or learning disabled. In this role I facilitate the students to develop a stronger sense of themselves and help them understand and manage their feelings and their behaviour.
I have experience of working with individuals who have suffered all kinds of trauma, whether that be childhood abuse, including sexual abuse, bereavement or post-traumatic stress. I also have experience of working with individuals who have a mental health diagnosis. And many years of experience working with individuals who have a learning disability. I feel this is a group whose emotional health is commonly over-looked.
I think both working as a mentor with young disabled people and as a counsellor with refugees has provided me with a strong affinity for disaffected individuals. This, and my own life experiences, have led me to a point at which I am able to say with confidence that nothing shocks me. I believe this has equipped me to provide a truly non-judgemental service to my future clients, whatever their issues.
I can offer a value-free listening ear to anyone who needs it. Life is sometimes too much for all of us, I hope I can help you negotiate your way through a bad time back to happier times and fuller enjoyment of life.
I have a background in Social Science having studied to degree level in Applied Social Science.
