Beryll Patricia Camplin
Would you like to get yourself and your life back on track? If you are visiting this website, the chances are you are experiencing some difficulties, the roots of which can often be found in our relationships with others. Or you may have a sense of issues unresolved, and would like to explore something from your past.
I offer counselling to adults and young people in a confidential and welcoming environment. I work integratively which means that I draw on different counselling theories and approaches to suit individual needs because we are all different. Your goals will be my goals; we will work together to achieve them.
Along with other therapists I believe that the key to successful therapy is the relationship between therapist and client; it is important for you to feel comfortable and safe. For that reason we can have an initial meeting to decide whether you would like to work with me. Approaching a counsellor can be pretty daunting and I will do my best to put you at ease, providing a non-judgemental space - a sounding board for unspoken thoughts maybe, or just a place to explore what is going on for you at this moment. If you prefer, you can also call me first for an informal chat and I will be happy to answer any concerns or questions.
If it feels difficult or impossible to change, consider the following:
'Impossible only means you haven't found the solution yet' (Ralph Waldo Emerson).
Perhaps I can help you find it...

Training, qualifications & experience
- Certificate in Counselling Skills (CPCAB); Certificate in Counselling Studies (CPCAB); BA, Sociology & Education, (OU); MSc (Distinction) in Therapeutic Counselling, Greenwich University (BACP).
- As a Registered Member, MBACP, of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy I adhere to their Ethical Framework for good practice and am committed to ongoing professional development to keep my skills and knowledge up to date.
Training and CPD in the last 18 months includes: Relational mindfulness; Working with trauma; Family dynamics and traumatic bonding; Attachment theory; Attachment and character strategies; Understanding and recognising the impact of domestic violence; Neuroscience in therapy; Existential counselling; The false self; Couples counselling; Working systemically with individuals; Use of self in the therapeutic encounter; The impact of child sexual abuse on adult survivors; Reducing conflict in relationships; Eating disorders.
My counselling experience includes: working with teenagers who have low self esteem; counselling women who suffer domestic abuse and trauma; helping people overcome depression and anxiety. I have also worked successfully with young adults on the autistic spectrum and with teenagers and adults who self harm, including eating disorders. Bereavement and loss have also been a large part of my work with clients in recent years and I am currently supporting clients experiencing panic attacks and generalised anxiety.
My first degree was in Sociology and Education and I have a strong interest in the context of people's lives - family, friends, work environment - all of which have a bearing on how we are in the world and how we relate to one another. I have been practising since 2010 and, as well as my private practice, I worked for many years in the Youth Service of a local community counselling agency, and for a women's centre in Surrey, offering both short and long term counselling.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
- Being too much in our head and ignoring what our heart tells us; seeking a sense of belonging
- wanting to be ourselves but scared of not conforming or of not fitting in, constantly wondering 'what is normal?'
- beating ourselves up with that inner highly critical voice; lacking self-worth, feeling guilty and ashamed
- I am also interested in transition stages - from teen to adult, young adults unsure of maturity, ageing and retirement issues.
