Heidi Jolliffe - MBACP (Accredited) Counsellor and Supervisor
Choosing a therapist can come at a very stressful and confusing time. To help I offer a free introductory telephone appointment to assist you. This time is often used to ask some questions and see if counselling and I could be the right form of support for you. There is no obligation to tie in as you may need more time before committing to such a personal process.
People come to counselling for many reasons there are no fixed rules for coming. Whether you are going through a challenging phase, suffer from anxiety, want to improve your emotional well-being, change behaviour, explore relationship difficulties or perhaps just need some additional support with interviewing
techniques - counselling does help.
I am an accredited and registered counsellor and qualified supervisor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I offer short and long term therapy to Adults, Young People and Children in a central location situated on the A30 in Camberley. Within easy reach from Farnborough and adjourning towns with excellent public transport links. My consulting room is comfortable and discreet, ground floor level with free parking and wheelchair access.
How can counselling help?
Counselling gives you the opportunity to talk in a safe place with someone who is non-judgemental, empathic and objective who you can trust to keep everything you say completely confidential unless safeguarding concerns arise. Within this setting it is then possible to talk about what can sometimes be very painful issues or challenges within your life that you may be struggling with. Counselling offers insight and clarity into what can often seem confusing and difficult feelings, and can help you to manage issues such as anxiety, bereavement, life changes, anger, relationship struggle, depression, stress and more.
My role is to get to know you and help you gain greater insight into the way you respond to yourself and others and why you may think and feel the way you do. This awareness becomes conscious by exploring, understanding and learning together how your life history effects your present and by recognising patterns of behaviour and scripts that no longer serve you or are in your best interests.
Through acknowledging feelings and understanding of behaviours you can then begin to let go of the ones that do not help you. Counselling can help you find different perspectives, learn new skills, gain greater awareness, raise confidence enabling change
Interviews and Public Speaking
I am also able to provide approaches that can help with confidence when attending interviews or public speaking. Many clients view this approach as a form of coaching in enabling personal development and find the learning very helpful in their everyday living. Please do enquire if you wish to know more about these cognitive approaches to the work.
If you feel I can help I would welcome your contact to discuss any immediate concerns you may have. You can reach my practice on 01252 521484 or 07914 581374. If when you call I am unavailable please leave your name and contact number on my confidential line and I will call you as soon as I become available.

Alongside private practice I work for a local youth agency providing counselling. My average client age ranges from 7 years upwards. Within this setting I also supervise and train student and qualified counsellors working with adults, young people and children.
In term time I counsel secondary students at a Senior School one day a week. I work another day in a Primary school providing group therapy and individual creative play therapy to children aged 4 upwards.
I recently started lecturing counselling at a local college.
I have worked within the National Health Service counselling Adults for a local hospital. To compliment this work I have also been employed by Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care supervising and developing counsellors practise within the organisation.
In the past I have taken additional training and counselled for The Place2Be a charity in London working with infant and primary children and their families.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have also undertaken additional training from the Place2Be a charity providing therapy for infant and primary children. Facilitating play within the counselling process provides children and young people the opportunity to express their feelings through creative mediums such as sand tray, puppets, painting etc.
Over my years of practice many adults have also found this approach helpful in assisting with their healing process especially around childhood trauma. Although this approach would not be automatically offered to adults unless consent was discussed and mutually agreed.
I provide daytime and early evenings appointments at a quiet location in Camberley. My therapy room is ground level with disabled access and there is free parking at the front of the premises. Session time is 50 minutes excluding family therapy where further time will be required.
