Tamara Green MSc Counselling & Psychotherapy MBACP Accredited
Hi I'm Tammy. Are you seeking affordable Counselling/Supervision with a friendly and professional Counsellor/Supervisor ?
My role in counselling/psychotherapy is to listen very carefully and deeply to the concerns that you bring and offer strategies that help calm and relieve anxiousness and distress. Talking within a therapeutic context is frequently grounding and calming and I offer a safe space so that you can express and develop ways to manage strong or painful emotions. Problems, issues difficulties and painful feelings are uniquely experienced and counselling can be short, medium or long- term. Often just knowing you have a safe space to take your concerns gives you some hope and realistic hope relieves distress and despair. When it is hard to see any hope I aim to hold this in mind whilst empathising with the severity of concern you are experiencing.
What I Offer
I trained to a high level (MSc-Level 7) so that I am more informed about developmental stages from childhood onwards. My initial training in a Person Centred Approach allows me to work respectfully and ethically with individuals from different areas of life with different life experiences. I have built up a wide range of strategies - CBT, Solution Focused, Mindfulness and Creative and Art techniques which are useful in helping you find new ways to relieve distress and anxiety.
My belief is that talking to a trusted counsellor in therapy helps to ground you so that you become able to manage intense emotions rather than continue to be overwhelmed by them, after which talking in counselling can help you make sense of difficult issues and become clearer about choices currently available or that may become available to you.
I am a BACP accredited Counsellor & Psychotherapist with eleven years experience (counselling adults, couples, young people and children - through private practice, NHS, EAP counselling agencies and voluntary sectors, prisons, substance misuse centres, health centres, primary and secondary schools and a centre for victims of domestic violence). My background includes having worked 3 years in the community with people who have Mental Health issues, learning difficulties & physical disabilities. Before that I was a Primary School support teacher; working to improve self esteem and confidence in children for ten years. Specialist areas include: working with trauma, anxiety, self-esteem and confidence issues.
Sessions last up to one hour:
available appointment times include- mornings, afternoons and evenings every weekday.
