Aurelia De Rocha MBACP
If you've got problems, I can help..
Let me explain,
The problems that many of us have aren't our fault, they are often due to how the brain works.
The human brain, mine, yours, everyone's, is not all that clever sometimes, and it's a bit out of date for the world we live in.
It tries to look after us and protect us but this isn't always effective and can cause us pain and distress.
I use findings from neuroscience coupled with an Integrative Counselling approach to help you sort things out.
I can help you understand why you feel as you do, explain what your brain is doing and show you ways to change that.
It's a bit like a faulty appliance.. You might stand there and push some buttons, hoping it will work but in the end it makes sense to call a person who knows howhow to fix it!
So, please give me a ring and we can have a chat about what you need, there is no charge for this, and if I can't help (but I hope I can), I may also be able to point you in the direction of someone who can.
I offer support with your current situation and will work with you to help you find solutions to the things you want to change in your life.
I don't just sit there and listen, I see the counselling relationship as a dynamic one, in which we both take part.
I specialise in trauma but have experience with a wide range of issues including anxiety, relationship problems and depression amongst others.
I also offer a service to help you stop smoking. This is something I developed myself and I used it on myself. I no longer smoke!
I am constantly updating my knowledge through research and academic work.
At the moment I am working privately and also with two charities, which I really enjoy.
I realise that contacting a therapist can be scary (I remember when I had to see one as part of my training!), and I will do my best to put you at ease. I'm a warm and approachable person. So call for a chat first and sound me out!
