About me

Hi there I’m Dot and thank you for taking the time to look at my page. Just to tell you a bit about myself and how I may support you.  Due to current circumstances surrounding the lockdown you may consider telephone sessions as an alternative. We can then move to face to face sessions once we are safe to do so.

I am currently working in Heswell and Bromborough in private practice as part of a team Workingtogether121 and I am a qualified, registered integrative Counsellor specialising in Cognitive Behaviour (CBT). As well as counselling, I am also a qualified Reiki Practitioner/Master Trainer. Counselling can be provided through services such as skype, what's App and telephone counselling and I have worked with clients who have been referred for counselling through the Employer Assisted Programmes (EAP) service.

I have lots of experience in helping people to move towards a better place of wellbeing and these include supporting clients with anxiety (generalised anxiety disorder), depression, relationships, divorce, self-esteem, bereavement, substance misuse including drug and alcohol, loss and grief including loss of a pet, self-harm, phobias, fertility, school related difficulties, anger management, eating disorders, OCD, addictions, PTSD, work related issues, redundancy, trauma, unemployment, retirement, health anxiety, suicide ideation, bullying, and autism spectrum conditions. I work with all age groups including children and young people and I also offer mediation/couple counselling. In the past, I have also supported and worked with University students helping them to reach their full potential and toward their goals.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 7 years’ experience working in a counselling setting, privately and within the voluntary sector. I have worked closely with young people, students, adults, and outside agencies, offering support and guidance. I am totally committed to my counselling role and consider this as my vocation and one that I am passionate about. I will work with you collaboratively to help you achieve your goals. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a client grow and move towards a better emotional state. My aim through the CBT approach is to help you become your own therapist so you may use the many techniques learnt, empowering you to be and do better thus taking responsibility for your emotional, and physical wellbeing.

Aside from my private work within the clinic, I work with adults and young people to move them closer towards the labour market by providing support with employability i.e writing CV’s, applications and supporting with interview skills. I also coordinate and deliver many training workshops to young people  for example Princes' Trust programmes. My experience also consists of working with staff in an education setting offering them support too when needed.

I hold an  AQA Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (which includes working with Trauma, and Children and Young People), and I am a qualified Reiki Practitioner (The Usui System of Natural Healing). In the past, I have used Reiki to treat staff of The Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Hospital Trust in Liverpool as part of a wellbeing at work initiative.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
