Beverley Meakin (MBACP accred)
I am an experienced counsellor and case work supervisor; counselling individuals, couples, families and young people in Relate since 1995 and working as a supervisor since 2003.
I work as a Senior Lecturer on Certificate, Diploma and Masters Counselling Courses at Staffordshire University and I have a private counselling and supervision practice.
I have 5 years experience of working in an infertility clinic and currently supervise infertility counselling.
My Counselling Approach
I work with individuals and couples on a short or long term basis.
My approach is to help clients explore their patterns of relating and communicating, to understand themselves, their emotions and patterns of communication better and make changes if they wish. I am aware of the importance of cultural and family influences on people and also of significant attachment figures both past and present.
I work with relational and emotional difficulties such as; communication issues, difficulty in making relationships or making changes in a relationship, separation, divorce, the impact of an affair, bereavement, work place problems, low self esteem, depression and anxiety, lack of motivation, managing change.
I have much experience of working with infertility issues; couples and individuals using donor sperm or egg, exploring talking to and telling the child, and support for the emotional experience of any infertility treatment.
