Rosie Good Dip.Couns. MBACP
Everyone struggles at times... with our lives, losses, relationships or just ourselves. Feelings of despair, fear, anger, loneliness, guilt, confusion or sadness can be overwhelming.
So how do you know counselling is for you?
Do you know what counselling involves?
How do you choose the right therapist for you?
What do you need?
I am offering a free half hour session where you can explore your needs, hopes and aims. You can ask questions and I can give an overview of what I have to offer. My training was rooted in the Person-centred approach with a progression to CBT and Transactional Analysis. Experience has taught me to tailor what I deliver to the needs of each individual, drawing on many theories, concepts and practices including Mindfulness. Together we can decide how to go forward and if we can work together.
As well as independent practice I also have experience working within agencies. I have worked extensively with young people (11 to 18) in secondary education and also resettlement counselling in association with the criminal justice system.
As an aside. I have been employed for many years in a private sector business environment working in teams and dealing with high stress and emergency situations. I also have experience of running my own small business, so therefore understand work-related pressures. I have a special interest in the effects of shift work on self and relationships.
I work with many presenting issues, to the list below I would add living with developmental disorders and mental health issues in the family, chronic pain and migraine.
I see clients in a room in my own house.It is a warm, safe, homely space. I also offer home visits in certain circumstances after discussion and consideration.
