Siobhan Stephen Bsc (Hons) Fully Qualified Counsellor/Therapist.MBACP.
I provide individual counselling and offer both short and long term therapy.Alongside my private practice I work with families and their children and have over 23 years paid experience of helping people address their emotional, personal and relationship difficulties. This has included various roles within mental health, offending, substance misuse, domestic violence and child protection. I hold an Enhanced Criminal Record Certificate (CRB).
I am also 12 step literate which means I understand the philosophy and process of Alcoholics & Narcotics Anonymous and other twelve step organisations. This would be helpful for people who are recovering from addiction. I also work with the underlying issues of addiction such as depression, trauma, neglect, co-dependency and relationship issues.
I work with a wide range of other issues some of which are listed below:
- Addiction issues.
- Anxiety, stress and depression
- Bereavement and loss.
- Relationship problems, divorce and separation.
- Work related stress.
Contacting a Counselor for the first time can seem daunting. Confidentially talking through your problems with a qualified professional can help. By considering your experiences in a sensitive manner and working through them at your own pace hopefully old and no longer helpful patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving can be understood in new ways, creating the opportunity to make the changes you want to in your life.
