Collette Duffin (MNCS) FDSC Counselling
I work from offices based in Magherafelt, Cookstown and Randalstown, and have gained extensive experience working with clients in a medical practice before moving into private practice. I am an integrative counsellor, with a FDSC in Counselling and i am a registered accredited member of the national counselling society (MNCS).
I provide a safe, warm professional and confidential environment working to BACPs code of ethics.
Being an integrative counsellor means I incorporate 3 main therapies, person centred, CBT, and psychodynamic, into my work, which gives you more of a choice as to how you want to look at your issues, and creates more flexibility as to how you would like to move forward. Integrative means having the ability to blend together different elements of specific therapeutic tools and approaches, which are best suited to each individual client need.
Training, qualifications & experience
University of Ulster FDSC in Counselling.
I have gained further professional training to ensure that I am equipped with the necessary knowledge and tools to work with a variety of issues and am continually attending new training courses.
I have had successful experience working with clients in a medical practice where I facilitated alongside clients, managing a wide variety of issues. From having gained this experience, I have experience in working with many complex issues, ranging from, anxiety, depression, OCD, Trauma, Child sexual abuse, Eating disorders, stress, bereavement, and many more.
Counselling with me can be of help. I can help you to acquire new skills needed to better manage lifes challenges. I can facilitate in providing Insight and understanding regarding your life situations and gaining personal growth. I can also provide you with an active listener, listening empathically to your issues with no judgement and full acceptance of the person sat in front of me. It also gives you the opportunity to explore thoughts and feelings regarding issues and concerns you may have in a safe, supportive, and confidential environment where we will get to explore what the best way of moving forward for yourself will be.
Building a relationship with my client is key and helps my clients to feel respected, heard and accepted. Through this my clients are then able to explore there pain and their most darkest of issues. Testimonials from previous clients have confirmed feelings of freedom from their traumas, increased self-esteem and the ability to move forward in life.
