Rosemary Elliott Registered M.B.A.C.P. Counsellor and Counselling Supervisor
Hello. I'm happy to help you find a way forward from what is troubling you. I've had many very grateful clients.
I am a fully trained person-centred counsellor with 21 years experience. I specialise in anxiety, relationship issues, bereavement, domestic violence, separation and divorce, physical and sexual abuse, depression, serious assault and post traumatic stress disorder, self-harming and addictions.
I was a Primary School teacher for several years and have three grown-up sons.
My approach is person-centred and integrative, which means we work on whatever you bring to the sessions which will enable you to move forward.
Has a situation or event overwhelmed you and you think you can't cope? The good news is, counselling from someone who is trained, will enable you to discover light at the end of the tunnel by finding a new path out of your difficulties.
If you want freedom from fear that is immobilizing you or the memories that haunt you, I will give you strategies to overcome that sense of helplessness and help you sleep more soundly.
Are you worried about your child, because they are sad? Are they having sleepless nights or nightmares? Are they resistant about attending school or very angry or aggressive? I can help them talk about what's bothering them and suggest ways of coping.
Do you feel anxious most of the time?
Are you experiencing sleepless nights, or loss of appetite, lack of concentration or having flashbacks from a traumatic experience in the past? I can help you to get your life back together.
If you're losing self confidence, are walking on eggshells or being verbally or physically abused by your partner or a member of your family, you don't have to put up with it. You need help urgently.
Have you been betrayed by someone you loved and trusted and are devastated?
Do you long for someone who listens and understands and will help you regain your self confidence and believe in yourself again? A trained counsellor like me will help you to get back on track. I am a qualified in counselling couples.
Are you aware that you're not living up to your full potential at home or at work? Maybe you have come to a crossroads in life and have no idea which way to turn.I will enable to to make the right decision.
Has redundancy left you confused and reduced your self-confidence? If so, counselling will give you the opportunity to unpack those feelings and enable you to move forward.
I have a secluded, quiet and comfortable room in Brough , where you can relax to talk about what is troubling you and be empowered to make decisions which will alter the situation.
I offer short and long-term, face to face counselling according to the B.A.C.P code of ethics, of which I am a registered member.
Friends and family may want to help, but talking to a person who is trained, but not involved, is the way forward.
Counselling will enable you to focus on the strengths that have helped you survive so far and discover resources that you were unaware of, which will lead to a more satisfactory way of living.
Together we can find a new pathway, so you can move from a difficult, dark place to a brighter and more fulfilling future.
