Beryl Lowry MBACP Dip Person Centred Counsellor and Play Therapist
May I be of assistance to you, on your journey through life?
My name is Beryl Lowry, and I have been a fully qualified Person-Centred counsellor for six plus years, and as such I offer a professional, confidential, non-judgmental, therapeutic relationship. My ethos is ‘if it matters to you, then it will matter to me’. Wherever you are in life, whatever your situation, between of us, we can find a way for you to move forward.
How might counselling help?
Sometimes life can be a challenging, bringing changes and difficulties for us. Sometimes we can find ourselves feeling ‘out of our depths’ or we may feel we have ‘lost control’ of aspects of our life. This could be caused through a sudden change in our circumstances, or through things that have occurred over a period of time or maybe even a combinations of both. Whatever the difficulty or struggle, I believe that the solution lies within you.
So why do you need a counsellor?
My role is to help you, to find that way forward; after all you are the expert on you. As a person-centred counsellor, I will aid, guide and sometimes challenge you to explore the possible pathways that lie ahead. My aim is to help you to gain autonomy and find the best pathway for you. My role is not to tell you what to do, but to help you to move forward at a pace you’re comfortable with.
Why work with me?
I am a member of The British Association of Counselling and Psychology (BACP), hence you can be assured that I have demonstrated myself to be a proficient and professional counsellor. I work within the parameters of the professional body’s ethical framework, and constantly strive to adhere to up-to-date codes of practice and research, thus providing the best quality of care for yourself.
My repertoire of clients, and therefore my experiences within the counselling field, includes: working within the mental health arena, such as anxiety and depression; working with those in palliative care and their loved ones, as well as, relationship/couples counselling.
In addition to working with adults, over the last four years, I have expanded my knowledge and professional skills, enabling me to work therapeutically with children of all ages and abilities, through the medium of play. Play allows the child a safe therapeutic distance, whilst they process, adapt and accept their reality.
I have substantial experience working with children both in educational (specialised needs and mainstream) and non-educational settings.
My clientele, both adults and children have been diverse, and as I work non-judgemental individualistic way, differences have never been an issue.
If you feel that I can help you or your child to work through any challenges or struggles, please feel free to contact me.
