Ros Baldwin - MBACP (Snr Accred)
People have told me that they find it easy to talk to me. I try to create a warm and safe place to discuss difficult situations. I have always enjoyed meeting people - and past clients have commented that they felt at ease and able to talk openly, quite soon after meeting me.
Sometimes in life we are faced with difficult decisions, or we feel we are at a crossroads, or 'stuck' in a situation, and are not sure which way to turn. I have 18 years of experience in working with people of all ages; adults, couples, adolescents and children.
I will offer a calm and confidential place to talk through your concerns. This will allow you the space to discover ways you may want to change. Making even small changes can make a huge difference to your present circumstances, and talking to someone who is not related to you and who will not be affected by what you say, can be very releasing.
I trained as an Integrative Counsellor, which means I use several different styles of counselling and match what I think will help my clients the best. I believe that forming a trusting relationship is often the key to successful counselling.
I have extensive experience in helping clients with many different issues, including anxiety, anger management,depression, stress, low self esteem, addictions, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, relationships, eating disorders, and many others (for a full list see below).
I have recently retired from working part time at an Independent Public School as a school counsellor, and have extensive experience with young people. I now work exclusively in my private practice, which I have been running for 18 years seeing all age ranges, in many different situations and with many different concerns.
I am a Senior Accredited BACP Counsellor and am on the United Kingdom Register of Counsellors. I am also a Supervisor, supervising other counsellors and organisations.
