Rochelle Gould PG Dip MBACP (Accred)
I am a fully qualified and registered counsellor, accredited to the BACP. I offer support and understanding in a confidential and non-judgemental environment. I feel it is important to work together, looking at the most beneficial way of moving forward and towards change. I work with a wide range of issues including anxiety, drug and alcohol addiction, bereavement, depression, childhood sexual abuse, relationship issues. I also work with issues related to disability and special needs including Autism and Asperger's, and have experience of working with carers.
I work face to face with individuals - adults and young people aged 13+, and with couples. Each session lasts 50 minutes (60 mins for couples) and the number of sessions can either be open-ended, or short term with an agreed number of sessions. I feel it important to address each client's needs individually and am happy to discuss any worries, expectations, or goals for counselling. The first session is a time to discuss the most helpful way of working together, clients can then book further appointments if they wish.
I have a private practice within a local alternative healthcare practice, providing a discreet and relaxing space in which to make sense of difficult feelings.
Appointments are available weekdays or evenings.
I am happy to discuss concessionary rates for counselling students, voluntary workers, carers and those working with disability.
Skype and telephone sessions also available.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an accredited and registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and adhere to the guidelines of their code of ethics and good practice.
I graduated from the University of Hertfordshire with a Post Graduate Diploma in Person-Centred and Psychodynamic Counselling.
Foundation certificate in Counselling
Primary Certificate in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy).
Training in Solution Focused Brief Therapy
Training in Bereavement counselling
In my practice, I work integratively, using Psychodynamic and Person-Centred Counselling, in addition to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. In this way I can offer the most appropriate approach for any client.
I am a registered provider with BUPA, Pruhealth, Aviva and Simplyhealth insurance companies.
I have extensive experience in bereavement and loss, having worked in a hospice for many years, providing support at a difficult time for many people. In addition, I have worked within the NHS, supporting many clients with a wide range of issues; I have also worked with troubled adolescent teenagers.
In my practice I work with those battling with drug and alcohol addiction and childhood sexual abuse, as well as eating disorders, domestic abuse, and relationship and family problems.
Anxiety is a common issue which many people struggle to control; I have worked with many clients using cognitive behavioural therapy in order to build coping mechanisms and strategies which can be used independently, and continuously.
I also work with the charity Mencap, whereby I co-ordinate a holiday playscheme for children with disability, offering respite and support to their families/carers; I also have experience of working with adults and young people with special needs including Autism and Asperger's Syndrome.
