Roz Cassidy MA MBACP(accred) "enabling Change"
I am a BACP accredited counsellor with 20 years of experience and a registered Myers Briggs (MBTI) facilitator, offering short or long term support from the peaceful private setting at Jesmond Therapy Centre.
I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship and in the telling of our stories. It is in the telling that we reassess, re-evaluate and understand why we feel and act and think the way we do. I offer a safe, confidential professional relationship in which the concerns of the client, which can feel overwhelming, frightening and confusing, can be shared and explored, leading to new insights, perspectives and possibilities. I believe in the importance of self awareness and self understanding and help my clients by facilitating this personal growth within therapy.
I also offer Myers Briggs (MBTI) psychometric testing with one to one personalized feedback. It is one of the most widely used instruments for understanding your personality type. It allows people to see themselves more closely and understand how their personal preferences affect the way they relate to others and the world. The information enhances understanding of yourself, your motivations, your natural strengths and potential areas for growth. It can also be used for career exploration and development, relationship counselling, mid-life transitions, team building, problem solving.
