C. Wendy Quinn
Congratulations! you have just taken a very big step! By looking at my profile you have began to take steps to put balance into your life, by finding the correct counsellor for you. You are moving towards getting some help or support for whatever is causing you to feel you need to speak to someone. Whether that someone is myself, or another counsellor, I am pleased you have taken the first step towards trying to change your current circumstances.
I hope this short profile will give you sense of how I work therapeutically and give you some background information about me.
I realise how difficult it can be to take that first step to seek out support from a professional counsellor. From my own experience, working with various age groups of people, meeting with a counsellor is generally a positive step towards greater self-awareness, discovering inner strength and re-balancing their lives. Whatever difficulty you find yourself in, anxiety, bereavement, depression, relationship problems, experiencing a traumatic event, counselling is an opportunity to discus your feelings with a greater openness in a safe and confidential relationship.
Difficulties in life can become overpowering and cause loss of confidence and in some cases identity. I genuinely believe that talking therapies can be beneficial for anyone who needs to work through any problem, difficulty or vulnerability they may be experiencing.
My approach is totally non-judgmental and confidential. I work in a relaxed environment where you are open to share and explore whatever brings you to counselling. I'm experienced in short-term, medium term and open-ended therapy. We can discuss what you feel is best for you at our first meeting.
Training, qualifications & experience
I’m a BSc (Hons) Graduate from Coventry University, in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy. Before qualifying I spent many years within a pastoral environment, journeying with people who found themselves in difficulties both mentally and/or spiritually. I have successfully completed various causes to enable me to carry out my work with compassion and humility. My many life experiences have, I believe, given me the capacity to journey with people at the most vulnerable times in their lives.
Since qualifying I have worked with all age groups ranging from junior school children to adults, all with their own unique issues and history.
As a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work to their ethical guidelines and attend regular supervision and Continuous Professional Development workshop to support my work.
