Linda Nonweiler MBAC Accred & UKRCP Registered Counsellor
I am a very experienced, qualified and Accredited Counsellor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) with over 15 years experience working with clients. I am also a UK Registered Independent Counsellor (UKRCP). Details of my qualifications can be found on the BACP website. I comply with their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I have a background of working in the NHS for 11 years and have worked as a counsellor in private practice since 2005 having started my counselling training in 2000.
I provide a completely confidential, sensitive, caring and reliable relationship where you will be supported during difficult times. I work with clients from the age of 15 years upwards.
I work from Chingford, E4 with easy access from Highams Park, South Woodford, Woodford Green, Walthamstow, Waltham Abbey, Chigwell, Loughton, Buckhurst Hill and Enfield.
As an integrative/CBT counsellor, I am very experienced in helping with issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, panic disorders, panic attacks, relationship and work issues, low self esteem, confidence issues, amongst others. Because, I am trained to work in a number of different approaches (Integrative) I am able to adapt our sessions to work with individual clients dependent on their presenting issues.
At times it can be difficult to confide in relatives and friends. You may not want to worry them with your feelings. Having therapy, enables you express your thoughts and feelings freely in a non-judgemental and confidential environment.
COGNITIVE-BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (CBT)
I am also qualified to work with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and help clients find coping strategies for their issues to help them identify faulty thinking processes, which often contribute to their problems. CBT helps clients gain an understanding of how their thoughts, affect their feelings and in turn how these affect behaviour. CBT is now widely recognised as one of the most effective therapies for a range of issues.
In addition, I am trained in Hypnotherapy which is extremely helpful for numerous issues, including, depression, anxiety, IBS, low self esteem, panic attacks, low confidence , unresolved issues, OCD etc.
I also undertake work on behalf of solicitors and have worked with many clients with Post-Traumatic Stress.
I also undertake EAP work and work for companies who wish to refer employees to me.
I have some vacancies for students who are on counselling courses and offer sessions at £40 per session.
In addition, I offer telephone counselling for clients who, find it difficult, for any reason, to attend face to face sessions.
I have availability during the weekdays (Wed daytime) and weekday evenings (6pm, 7pm and 8pm appointments). Other appointments may be available on request.
Parking is available.
