Charlotte Hall Dip, Couns. MBACP (Accred). UKRCP Reg. Ind. Counsellor
You will be amazed how talking to someone who will listen empathically can make a difference. The built up suffering and emotional distress you have within, can be released, through talking it out. Whilst you are talking, you will access feelings you may have suppressed and the sense of freedom you will have when you begin to unlock those difficult feelings and memories will empower you to move forward. It will be hard and scary, so with my support, we can do it together.
If one or some of these questions resonate with you, it may help you decide.
Are you struggling to cope with your responsibilities?
Do you feel helpless with no where to turn, no where to go, no one to talk to?
You suffer from anxiety and/or depression?
You want to understand why you are feeling so low and unhappy?
You are feeling lonely and isolated?
You are struggling to communciate with your partner, have relationship difficulties?
Whatever your questions may be, why should you choose me to help you?
I believe in my ability to help others and know I have something to offer, which will make a difference.
I listen. I make no judgments. I am empathic. I offer support. I can help you.
How I work:
I am an integrative therapeutic counsellor with BACP Accreditation and UKRCP membership.This means that I am approved by the BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapy) as a qualified counsellor. I have to undertake yearly professional development workshops to maintain my Accreditation. Therefore I am refreshing my learning all the time to enable me to give you the best help.
I work with the Person Centred Approach, which is a talking therapy offering the core conditions of empathy, unconditional positive regard for each of my clients and genuine care and consideration for my clients’ autonomy. It is important for my clients to be able to trust me with their personal difficulties and I am a warm friendly person who will work with you at your own pace. I also adapt Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Transactional Analysis (TA) into my work where it may benefit the client. Every client is unique so it is important to be flexible and treat each client's individuality with care and respect. I wish to help my clients achieve the best outcomes from counselling.
What I can offer you:
I want you to feel better about yourself.
I will support you in your self-discovery and awareness, which will enable you to find empowerment to continue your life journey. You will hopefully find some understanding of past experiences or perhaps acceptance of losses you have had. Whatever you bring to the counselling session, it is important for you and we will work collaboratively for you to find understanding and possibly answers to your problems.
Types of counselling I offer:
Individual – we work together talking, listening and sharing the process, which naturally evolves and progresses to some learning for the client and understanding with a sense of empowerment.
Couples counselling – I work with couples who have relationship issues. I am like a mediator who facilitates the process of two people who are struggling and by working together, help to make their relationship healthier. I offer communication skills and exercises that couples can use and work with together.
Family therapy – I am a school counsellor and work with children aged 11 and upward. Occasionally I will work with a parent and child together and help them communicate more effectively. Children often find it hard to talk to their parents. I can help the child find ways to talk to their parents. I can also see the child with either or both parents. If your child is struggling I can help.
Therapy is conducted in sessions lasting one hour.
I am here to offer you what works best for you. Our sessions are confidential.
