Yvonne Mc Grory Reader. MBACP
I am a person centered therapist. I can offer a warm, welcoming space for you to talk, I will listen while you explore you thoughts and feelings. Being a humanist/person centred therapist I understand the importance of the relationship between client and therapist. How important it is for the client to feel listened to, understood and not judged. Entering therapy can be a daunting time for the client. So I'll explain what will happen in our first session together. I will talk you through our mutual contract to work together(agreement) then we will discuss what therapy is, we will look at your reasons for coming to counselling, explore how you feel about attending and what your understanding of therapy is. This can put clients at ease. While offering a safe non judgmental space, to explore the issues you may find are affecting your life.
Life can be overwhelming, you may have feelings of despair, depression, anxiety, loneliness or sadness, feeling you need to talk to someone who will give you the time and expertise to assist you on your journey. I have many years experience of working with clients from all walks of life. The issues I work with include relationship issues, family issues, depression, anxiety, marital issues, bereavement and PTSD. I have also worked with those caring for a terminally ill relative or dealing with a terminal illness themselves.
I endeavour to offer a safe place for you to talk, for you to be heard.
I have also trained in CBT for depression and anxiety.
I offer a welcoming place for you to explore your thoughts and feelings.
