Christine Inceer - Registered MBACP (Accred.)
Hello - and a warm welcome to my profile.
I imagine it’s a bit daunting looking through all these pages trying to choose the right person to help you. So, let me tell you a bit about who I am, how I work and what I can offer.
All of us encounter difficulties in our lives at some time or other. Often we struggle through things on our own or with the support of friends and family. But occasionally we need the help of a professional who is trained to really listen, who can understand your problems from your point of view and who accepts you as you are rather than judges or criticises you.
How do I work?
I have a warm, open and accepting approach and offer a safe, confidential space that enables you to talk freely about the things that really concern you. You may be dissatisfied with life, in distress, in difficulty or in despair and, to begin with, you may find it hard to talk openly. But feeling fully heard, understood and not judged can help you to express and explore your thoughts and feelings in gradually more depth. Doing so will give you the opportunity to look at areas of your life, your relationships and yourself that you may not have been able to consider or face before.
My role is to support, encourage and gently challenge you in this process, by working with you at your pace and at a depth that you feel comfortable with. As a result you may be able to see things from a new perspective and discover solutions and answers or make choices and changes that enable you to cope better, give some direction and control of your life or a greater sense of contentment.
What experience do I have?
As well as working in private practice I am also a counsellor for an NHS Qualified Provider in Hull. I have worked with many issues including anxiety, anger, bereavement, childhood abuse/trauma, depression, suicidal thoughts, eating disorders, domestic abuse, redundancy, relationship issues, self-esteem/self-confidence, serious illness and work-related stress.
I work short, medium or long term with individual adults.
What do my clients say?
"I wanted to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your help and support during a very difficult time."
"This was really useful, exactly what I needed. Chris made me feel comfortable and at ease when I'm not used to sharing/talking about my feelings."
“Chris understood my concerns and how I felt. She helped me to consider strategies for coping…”
“Pouring my feelings out to someone other than my family and friends really helped me.”
"I feel a lot more positive and think of your kind, helpful and supportive words of wisdom daily."
“Chris helped me to gain a better understanding of myself, to offload all my worries and look at them from a different perspective.”
"The sessions helped me immensely to not only see ‘the light at the end of the tunnel' but also to appreciate myself more than I did previously....”
"Thank you for helping me find calmness, figure myself out and learn to look at my situation differently…"
A bit more about me
Having spent 20+ years in engineering, marketing and management and having had a number of difficult times myself, I realised that I was becoming more and more fascinated by people. So, eventually, I opted for voluntary redundancy and completely changed career. As with many 'converts', I am very passionate about my profession and am totally committed to supporting, inspiring and empowering others so they can live life more fully and better cope with life's inevitable ups and downs.

Training, qualifications & experience
I am a registered accredited member of the BACP. As an accredited member, I have completed a substantial level of training and experience which has been approved by the BACP, the organisation that regulates counselling and psychotherapy.
I trained at York St. John University and was awarded a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy with Distinction.
I work part-time as a counsellor for an NHS Qualified Provider in Hull, working with adults who have a broad range of issues and concerns.
I volunteered for 4 years with 1-2-1 Counselling in York working with a wide variety of clients who were referred by their GP or who self-referred.
I volunteered for 4 years as a Listener with Samaritans, supporting people who were in distress or despair as well as those who felt that life was no longer worth living.
I have also volunteered with AGE UK as part of their Good Neighbour scheme, providing support to older people in the community.

I charge £40 per hour for all appointments.
You can pay by cash at the end of our session, or if you prefer, you can pay online 24 hours beforehand so that the payment reaches me prior to our session.
In South Cave, my counselling workspace is located in a comfortable, accessible ground floor room within my home. (There is one wide step before my front door.)
The Kingston Centre in Hull (located opposite the Hull New Theatre) involves several steps up to the front door and then stairs up to my room.
I also offer counselling over the phone or using Skype on either a regular or occasional basis, although I do recommend meeting up in person initially, for at least one session.
I do need a minimum of 24 hours notice of any cancellations. (Less than this may incur a double charge at our next appointment.)
