About me

Welcome to my profile page!
 
My name is Irène and I am a fully qualified and accredited counsellor (BA Hons) and nlp coach with over 18 years of experience helping people break through limiting thought patterns and behaviours that keep them dissatisfied with their lives.
 
Mental Health is one of the most important aspects of living a happy and successful life. And like physical health our mental health is often affected by what goes one in our lives. Anxiety, stress, depression or live events like divorce or loss can put a huge strain on our ability to look after ourselves.
 
At Counselling for Change and Wellbeing I discuss your issue in dept to find the underlying issue and help you to gain a greater understanding of what might have caused the problem in the first place. This insight will help us to look for new ways of managing your issue in new and more up to date ways. We will work together at a pace that suits you to support an affirmative and effective process for positive change to be lasting.

Besides working in my private practice in Lightwater,  I am also a counsellor and supervisor at the Brunel University London where I work with students and staff managing their mental health and wellbeing. I deliver several workshops to both, students and staff, focussing on stress and negative internal dialogue. 
I would be very happy to start our work together with a free phone consultation where you can let me know your reasons for calling, your expectations of working with me and ask any questions you might have about how I work.

I hold a current and enhanced DBS check UK wide.
There is never a bad time to invest in ourselves for life changing returns.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
