Geraldine Davenport Reg MBACP
Maritime Business Centre,16 Balls Road
Hello, I'm Gerri. I am a Qualified Counsellor and registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists).
It's perfectly normal for us to face difficulties at some stage in our life. I understand how daunting it can be to admit that you need to talk to somebody about what is troubling you. This may be a result of a traumatic experience, relationship issues, childhood experiences, or just knowing that 'something doesn't feel right,' Counselling can help by talking through these issues, and by exploring the emotions surrounding them.
I am passionate about helping my clients through their difficulties and raising their awareness and self-esteem, so that they can move forward in a more positive way.
I work with people just like you every day.
My special interest is working with victims of domestic abuse, and I have worked in this area since 2002. I have given training to Police officers, Social workers etc on the effects domestic abuse has on victims and their families. I have written and delivered programmes for victims, helping them to understand what has happened, and to help their self-esteem so that they will feel stronger in the future. I have worked with various Charities, which have included Wirral Mind and was employed by a charity (Zero Centre) which helped victims of Domestic Abuse and their children.
I know how confusing it can be to understand your emotions, I will help you to make the changes necessary to move forward with your life. I will help you to reduce your stress, anxiety and improve your self-esteem and confidence.
How I Work
I work from counselling rooms based in Balls Road Birkenhead, an easy walk from Birkenhead town centre, and on a bus route. Each counselling session is one hour.
In addition to traditional face to face counselling, I also offer online counselling, which can be either, Skype video counselling or email, for U.K residents and English speakers worldwide, whether living at home or an Ex Pat overseas. If you would like further information regarding this, please contact me.
How to Get Started
If you feel that I can help you, you can contact me by either email or phone. We can arrange an initial meeting where we can talk about what you want to get out of counselling, I can explain more about how I work and answer any questions you may have. If you feel happy to continue, we can arrange further appointments at a time that is convenient for you.
