Pauline Hill BACP reg Dip Couns
I am a warm, kind, mature and caring person who truly believes that everyone can find their own way and answers with the right support and above all by being truly heard without judgement.
I have experience of working with clients who are having relationship difficulties, with a partner, child, family member or friend and will help you to find a way to accept your situation and move forward.
I have had much success working with clients who have experienced trauma and young people who are anxious, stressed or feeling overwhelmed for example with exams or from being bullied. I have worked as a School Counsellor with young people aged 11-18 for the past three years.
I offer regular 50 minute sessions (ideally weekly) and am happy to see adults and young people of all ages, in a lovely private room within my home, which is set in the quiet Wiltshire village of Biddestone with tranquil surroundings and plenty of driveway parking. (There is also a bus route from Chippenham with a short 5 minute walk to my house)
I really look forward to hearing from you and really do understand how hard it can be to fully trust and open up to someone, but I also know the true benefit of doing so, and am ready to listen in a non-judgemental, caring way.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a person centred counsellor, with a diploma in counselling and a fully registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I have worked with adults who have suffered domestic violence, post natal depression, anxiety and depression and family problems, including divorce, affairs and communication. As well as young clients who have self-harmed, attempted suicide, suffered bullying and low self esteem, felt overwhelmed with exam pressures or from being bullied. I believe from feedback and success within a School setting that I have a real knack of communicating and most importantly understanding teenagers who may be struggling with anxiety and feelings in an increasingly challenging world.
