Mrs. Randall Easton Wickham (BACP Counsellor and Supervisor)
I am a BACP accredited counsellor with an M.A in counselling and have 25 years experience in counselling. I have worked as a counsellor in the Rutland and Leicestershire area for 20 years, and have written and had published clinical treatment books both in the US and the UK. I am also a painter/artist.
I am an empathic, non-judgemental, and supportive individual with strong listening skills. I currently offer counselling to adults of all ages, including adolescents and couples/partners. Counselling services are confidential and are provided from my rural home, which means I can be very flexible regarding appointment times.
I am an integrative counsellor, as I am trained and specialise in a number of different orientations such as cognitive, psychodynamic, person-centred and self psychology. Sessions can be tailored to your individual needs.
Over the past 25 years I have specialised in treating the following issues:
- low self-esteem or self-worth
- anxiety & stress
- eating issues and disorders
- relationship issues
- difficult life transitions
- chronic illness
- post-traumatic stress disorder
- obsessive-compulsive personality disorder
- abuse and trauma
Counselling is an effective treatment for any emotional and mental health issue, as well as being a great resource for individuals undergoing any crisis or stressful life transition. All of us experience these issues at some point in our lives and subsequently we can feel isolated and alone. Many individuals find that speaking to someone in a safe and therapeutic environment, helps them to make the right choices, and to move forward in a more positive and satisfying direction. In counselling being listened to, heard and supported, can make all the difference.
If you would like more information, or are interested in making an appointment, please ring me on 01572 756730 or email me at email@example.com Please leave a message on my answering machine if I am not available, and I will return your call as soon as possible.
