Hi my Name is Sheila Darbey(nee Phillips) I have practised and taught counselling for the past 15 years. My counselling service is Person Centred, which means that the clients needs are essentially the focus of my work with virtually no preconceived ideas about what you want or need. This is because I believe with help, the client can identify their own problems and find solutions to whatever problems or difficulties they may have been are still currently troubled by.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an Honours Degree in Psychology specializing in child psychology. I trained at North Trafford and Manchester College I have an Advanced Diploma in Counselling Theory and Practice.As an Adult Education Lecturer for Manchester. Adult Education Service I was a trainer for the Level 2 and 3 Diploma .in counselling including many Introductory Courses. Working as a trainer and counsellor in women's refugesand,mentoring programmes in schools has given me insights into many social and emotional problems such displacement, isolation, domestic abuse,co-dependency, toxic relationships sexual abuse and substance misuse.
My experience a counsellor has been further enhanced by working for several Drugs and Alcohol Abuse organisations which enabled and supported the service users with issues such a dependency, addiction and harm- reduction again with several clients moving on to volunteering and support work after counselling.
Finally, I would like to describe myself as a dedicated counsellor who is dedicated to my work and has nothing but positive feedback from clients and organisational partnerships.
