Deborah Rose FdSc Couns, PGCE/Cert Ed, MBACP - Adults/Young People /Adolescents
The Old Rectory
Over the years, I have gained extensive experience working with Adults, Young People & Adolescents within a variety of roles & settings. As a trained Teacher, Mentor, Support Worker and qualified Counsellor I have supported individuals with many of life's issues/concerns. Throughout my career I have always wanted to support others and feel that my background has enabled me to offer individuals a breadth of life experience alongside professional knowledge and expertise. Please view my website www.letsworkthroughit.co.uk for further information.
How I work
I aim to support you within the Counselling process, by having a genuine regard for your well-being, and by providing a safe, non-judgemental, confidential environment, where you can openly discuss your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. As a trained counsellor, I will actively listen, engage and work with you, aiming to help you have a better understanding of yourself and others, effectively empowering you to find your own way forward, in a way that you feel is best.
At the core of my work sits a Humanistic Person Centred ethos, paramount for me is the building of the relationship, establishing trust, warmth and providing a safe space underpin my practice. Alongside this as an Integrative Counsellor I am able to offer elements of several theoretical approaches dependent upon your needs, inclusive of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Motivational Interviewing and Transactional Analysis (T.A). I believe "One shoe does not fit all" and that every individual who enters into counselling requires individual counselling.
