Dee Cameron - BSc(hons),MBPsS,MBAPC (Accred)
I have extensive experience of working therapeutically with both young people and adults - including couples work and as an approved counsellor for trainees.
Embarking on counselling can be a daunting process. I offer a safe and supportive environment for you to explore your feelings.
Your emotional well-being is important. Particularly at points of transition (such as adolescence, parenthood, break-down in relationships, career change, illness and bereavement) life can often be difficult to cope with. Having the time and space to be heard can be helpful in finding a way forward.
As a trained psychodynamic counsellor, I work with your past and present experiences. Together we will look at how this links with your conscious and unconscious thoughts and behaviour to make sense of current feelings and relationships. Sessions are confidential, and you will always be listened to with respect and without discrimination. The therapeutic relationship is based upon acceptance, empathy and positive regard with an emphasis on developing a good working alliance that fosters trust and encourages new ways of understanding.
Individual counselling sessions are 50 minutes long and conducted on a weekly basis. This may be fixed-term (brief) therapy or longer-term (open-ended) therapy, dependent upon your needs.
I always offer an initial consultation to discuss your reasons for seeking counselling. This is an opportunity for you to ask any questions and raise any concerns about the therapeutic process. We will discuss your needs for counselling at this time and how these would best be met.
