Cheryl Overington: Chartered Counselling Psychologist & Supervisor (Snr Accred)
0151 342 5346 / 07784 735784
Hello, my name is Cheryl and I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (B.P.S) and Health Care and Professions Council (H.C.P.C) and a Senior Accredited Supervisor with the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (B.A.C.P) with 7,000 hours counselling hours experience. I am fully insured and supervised.
My Senior Accredited status means that I have achieved the highest level of professional recognition awarded by the B.A.C.P, the main professional body for therapists in the U.K.
I am an Integrative Psychologist trained in a number of therapeutic approaches including:
Person Centred Therapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Mindfulness and N.L.P (Neuro Linguistic Programming), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and A.C.T (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)
I work face to face, on the telephone and via Skype with individuals and couples on a short term or long term basis. I work in Heswall on the Wirral; Heswall is 20 minutes from the centre of Chester and Liverpool.
I provide a safe and supportive space for you to explore and discuss your concerns and find solutions which are right for you.
I have experience of working with people on a whole range of life experiences and I specialise in the following areas: depression, anxiety, trauma, couple counselling, addictions, low self esteem, bereavement, work based problems, sexual violence and abuse and anger management.
Finding the right therapist can be a daunting task and I am happy to provide a free telephone consultation so that you can ask me a bit more about how I work, what you can expect and anything else that you feel unsure of.
Please call or email me to arrange this.
