Ashley Smith CEA Counselling Services Limited
I am a qualified counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy working within the code of ethics as laid down by the BACP.
I always work in the best way to suit you ensuring openess, honesty and transparency. As part of the BACP’s guidelines for ongoing professional development, I undergo regular supervision and access relevant training and professional development. I am fully insured.
Examples of the therapies I use in an integrated way are:
- Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Transactional Analysis (TA)
I have had my practise for over four years, having qualified in October 2015. I work mostly on a one to one basis and with couples
I'm a genuine empathic listener and the environment in which I counsel is relaxing and peaceful.My previous experience of working with families experiencing difficult times has given me an understanding of the human capacity to cope in time of crisis or difficulty.
Life events can often seem overwhelming affecting us, as individuals, in a wide variety of ways, such as anxiety, frustration, regret, lack of motivation/direction and low self-esteem and self confidence.Experiencing this can affect us negatively and affect the quality of life for ourselves and for our friends and family. It may seem like a variety of areas of our life are affected, such as our health, family, relationships, education, work, money, time etc.
If I am the right person for you to work with, it will feel right. Do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions at all in relation to the counselling and therapeutic relationship.
Warmest wishes and I look forward to working with you. Please contact me for further information via the website telephone or face book.
