Errolie Sermaine, MBACP
Thank you for visiting my profile page and considering me as your therapist or supervisor.
Throughout life we can all face challenges and it often helps to talk to someone about our thoughts, feelings and experiences. At these times it may feel uncomfortable or inappropriate to talk to friends or loved ones, or perhaps you feel that you don't have anyone around you that you could go to for help and support. I can offer you a safe, supportive and confidential space where you can explore and work through problems, thoughts, feelings and choices.
I have experience of working with a broad range of issues such as addiction, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, low self-esteem and many more. I specialise in women's emotional and mental health, in particular postnatal depression. My practice is set in a relaxed atmosphere and I welcome clients from all age groups, genders and beliefs.
I also offer clinical supervision for fully qualified and trainee counsellors. Please contact me for further details.
As a highly experienced, fully qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist, I draw on a range of therapeutic approaches to offer you the empathy and understanding you need to become the person you want to be. I am professional trained in Person-centred, Gestalt, Existential, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural approaches but favour a humanistic approach. I offer short and long term therapy, tailored to suit your individual needs.
I offer face-to-face sessions but understand that for some people this may difficult so I can also provide online or telephone counselling sessions. If you would like to more about this type of therapy, please contact me for further details.
I am a member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere strictly to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professionals. I understand the courage it takes to contact a counsellor so I continuously strive to provide the best therapeutic experience to my clients.
Since qualifying I have worked in private practice and a variety of organisations specialising in addiction, domestic violence, school counselling and mental health. I am also a fully qualified teacher (QTLS) and trainer working in Adult Education where I deliver and manage a range of courses including counselling (levels 1 - 5), mental health awareness, substance misuse awareness, understanding suicide, mindfulness, understanding self-harm and many more. I am also the Clinical Supervisor for the Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and a designated safeguarding lead.
