Elizabeth Hancock MBACP
We all need extra support from time to time as well as time and space to talk through difficulties that we may be experiencing.
Counselling is a talking therapy that offers the time and space needed, which is ideal for clients to talk through any worries or concerns that they may have, especially if they are unable to talk to their friends and family.
I work as a person-centred counsellor within Catterick Garrison and surrounding areas. Person-centred counselling empowers the client to understand and make sense of their problems, without feeling judged, within a confidential and safe environment.
Counselling encourages self-expression, self-awareness, self-development and a greater understanding of self. It recognises and values the client, allows barriers to be broken down and the learning of self to begin.
It is the genuineness and intimacy of the client/counsellor relationship that makes person-centred counselling so special. The focus of person-centred counselling is always on the client's own thoughts and feelings, not those of the counsellor.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a worked with many clients over the years however I have been lucky enough to work closely with veterans, military personnel, survivors of domestic abuse, those whom have been bereaved, clients with relationship issues and those struggling with life’s challenges.
I have always had a great interest in counselling which led me on to starting my counselling career in 2006. I studied for 3 years at Chapters Counselling and Training where I gained a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling as well as a Level 2 and Level 3 certificate in counselling.
As part of studying for the Level 4 Diploma I was fortunate to work within bereavement care where I gained 100+ counselling hours.
