Glenys Boulton, MBACP[Accred], Advanced Diploma Therapeutic Counselling
I have been a counsellor for 15 years and have worked in primary care [general], social services [crisis intervention], cruse [bereavement issues] and the probation and prison services [forensic work]. I have been in private practice for the last 5 years.
I work humanistically and I also use ideas and techniques from other approaches (eg CBT) if this would suit the client. I am particularly interested in attachment issues and how our early years influence our adult behaviours and lifestyles.
I offer a safe and confidential space for clients to explore their issues whether they are brought to therapy by a particular dilemma or a more general dissatisfaction with life. The relationship between client and therapist is very important for the work and therefore I suggest that clients use the first session to make some assessment of the relationship potential. If it doesn't feel right don't feel embarrassed to say so and try another therapist.
I also work as supervisor of both individuals and groups.
