Fliss Power MSc, UKCP Reg, BACP (individual member).
I work with individuals, offering a non-judgemental, empathic relationship to explore what is going on for you in your life, whether the need is targeted short-term counselling, or longer-term psychotherapy for deeper issues. I particularly work with issues around identity, sexuality and gender, low mood and depression, anxious feelings, loss and bereavement.
I work in a person-centred/experiential way, which means that I believe that you are the expert in your own life and that you will be able to find your own unique way forward, however hard that may seem right now. I like Maria Villas-Boas Bowen’s metaphor of a therapist as a Sherpa; a knowledgeable companion who accompanies the traveller, perhaps pointing things out on the way, but who doesn’t decide the route.
Prior to training as a counsellor I worked for many years in financial IT, so I have a good understanding of the corporate world and and the stresses and strains which can arise, perhaps from a mismatch between personal and corporate values.
I offer sessions from premises in the S11 area of Sheffield, with access up one flight of stairs.
The premises are private and safe with plenty of on-street parking. The 88/83 (not 83a) buses serve the area.
I work on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with early and late appointments available.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MSc in person-centred & experiential psychotherapy (2016) from the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (SPTI) in Nottingham. I am now a graduate member of SPTI and have professional registration with UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and have individual membership of BACP. I abide by the ethical codes of all these organisations.
I have wide-ranging experience gained in a number of counselling services, including working with anxiety and OCD, life transitions, issues around gender or sexuality, loss, relationship difficulties and low mood/depression.
