Rischenda Poulson Dip (Couns), Fdsc Counselling, BA (Hons) Counselling, MBACP
Counselling/psychotherapy may be sought for many reasons - sometimes life may feel overwhelming due to a specific trauma, or an on-going sense of inner tension/unease that is hard to explain or understand.
I offer a genuine, confidential and non-judgemental therapeutic space to enable you to explore these feelings and whatever is troubling you, at your own pace. Alongside my private practice I work as a locum counsellor for the NHS and also provide counselling in a palliative care setting; furthermore I lecture in counselling at a local college. I am a fully qualified counsellor and have many years experience in systemic relational counselling and working with young people. Through using an integrative psychotherapeutic approach (incorporating person centred, psychodynamic, gestalt and transpersonal paradigms), this allows me to tailor therapy to the individual and unique needs of each client. I provide an initial consultation for a reduced fee of £20 to see whether you would like to work together.
