Chmaine Robinson Counsellor/ Psychotherapist, BACP/NCS/NHS-Manchester
I'm Ch'maine and I am a qualified Psychotherapist and Nutritional food coach, based in Manchester. I specialise working with GAD, anxiety, panic disorder, self esteem and mindfulness, amongst more. I myself, have had therapy by way of Counselling, experiencing the great and not so great. The not so great made me realise how important it is to have a suitable therapist, the great inspired me to train, qualify and set up a practise whereby you come first and have time invested in you that you deserve....And here we are!
To offer Psychotherapy/ counselling doe's not mean the client is analysed and asked to lie on a sofa (although one is available, should you want to!). It means that a variety of tools and techniques are available to aid you in whichever journey you have come to explore, in a non judgemental and person centred approach. This means, at your pace, levels of comfortableness and you being in control.
Within the therapies offered, is integrative counselling, meaning my training has allowed me access to various theoretical platforms and methods of counselling. This gives great benefit when working together to explore what will be most suitable and effective for you. Together, we tailor sessions according to your needs, even if that is a session where you just want to gather your thoughts... how often is it that we allow ourselves that golden hour to just, well, think? This can be the opportunity....
Where sessions are held is also your choice as I operate from my home location, can travel to you (please enquire) yet also book a therapy room should you which to do so.
My Counselling services extend from face to face sessions, online and telephone consultations, please enquire for more information where needed. It is appreciated not everyone is comfortable with one form or another. All are welcome. The important thing is that you are reaching out and starting a new journey.
As I am self- employed, I am able to offer day, evening and weekend sessions according to appointment. Please visit the website or email/ phone. I will always aim to respond on the day or within 24 hours.
Please do also note that everyone deserves an opportunity to begin a new journey and so I am happy to discuss sessions with those on lower incomes/ benefits/ students (proof necessary)
