Sheila Cardow BSc, PgDip, Dip, PgCE, MBACP (Reg)
I am a therapist who specialises in working with historical abuse in all its forms: emotional, sexual, physical,neglect, etc. I have 20 years experience working with both male and female clients and also with partners of survivors.
Seeing a counsellor can be a daunting prospect. I hope to offer you a safe and confidential space where you can explore whatever issues are troubling you. I work from a person-centred perspective and believe that the relationship between the client and therapist is the heart of the healing process.
My particular area of interest is in working with historical abuse. Being a survivor of child abuse can make life in the world today very difficult and I have had the privilege of working with a large number of men and women, who wish to change how their past affects the present and their future. Please contact me if you would like to talk about this further.
I have been offering a private counselling service since 2000. My qualifications include a Post-graduate Diploma in Counselling from the University of Hertfordshire and a further Diploma in Working with Adult Survivors of Childhood Abuse from the University of Middlesex. In addition I continue to update my knowledge with regular attendance at specialist training venues in line with the BACP requirement for continiung profesional development. I am recently completed a postgraduate certificate in Spiritual Dimensions in Therapy.
I see couples and individuals for short term and longer term work.
