Resho Birdi MBACP Registered
As a qualified and experienced counsellor using the Person-Centred Approach I offer a confidential counselling service in the Wolverhampton area. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework for good practice.
My counselling service provides a comfortable and safe environment where you can talk, and explore your emotions, expressing your thoughts without fear of judgement. Anyone can benefit from counselling, it can be useful when experiencing a crisis or a trauma or to deepen self-awareness.
I am able to help with a range of areas including:
- relationship issues
I have a particular interest and experience of working with clients who are experiencing loss and bereavement. I have many years experience of working with people of all ages, ethnicities and cultures. I have worked with vulnerable adults with mental health, learning disabilities, alcohol and substance misuse for many years and in doing so I recognised the need for people to have time and space to talk about their issues. For the last three years I have enjoyed and continue to value my time working as a volunteer counsellor for local charities.
I view every client as a valued individual and believe that it is important to build a relationship with them that is built on honesty and trust. These foundations are present throughout our time together, to ensure I support you in dealing with the many issues that can arise during our life’s journey. Clients therefore can take control of the direction in which they wish to proceed and are supported in exploring the options available to them.
No single type of therapy exists to fit all people but as a Person-Centred Counsellor I use a variety of tools and models to support my clients deal with the issues that are troubling them. The Person-centred Approach allows clients to work at a pace that is manageable and achievable for them. In Person-Centred Therapy clients feel listened to and understood, and the focus is on helping them become more in touch with their feelings, emotions and experiences. The safe and trusting counselling environment encourages clients to set goals and directions appropriate to them.
In life, we may experience difficult times which overwhelm us and we need to talk to someone. No matter how close we are to our friends and family, however, at times we just don’t want to worry them with such things. During these times it can feel as though no-one can truly hear us.
If you are struggling with an issue and would like to chat before you commit to a counselling journey please feel free to contact me. Based in Wolverhampton, appointments are generally flexible, including evenings, weekends and day times, but confirmation of availability should be made by telephone in the first instance. Home visits may also be an option to clients seeking counselling.
