Ginette Ward Reg Mbacp Dip Counselling
Welcome to my profile, I realise it can be daunting to reach out for help when you may be feeling overwhelmed or lost what ever the situation. You may be feeling anxious, stressed,angry, depressed or have low mood my aim is to help you.
I am a qualified Person centred counsellor, and CBT therapist a registered member of the BACP 373243 and am bound by their ethical framework, I work from my own office seperate from my property within a rural setting so own transport is vital.
What to expect
You may not have had counselling previously and so might be unsure of what to expect. I offer you the space and time to explore the issues you choose to bring to counselling working together at your pace through sessions of 50 minutes.
I respect all individuals and therefore realise the issues you want to bring to counselling may feel different from anothers problems. The counselling you receive has to be unique to you enabling a solid foundation of trust to build between counsellor and client.
I offer a flexible approach to help explore feelings and emotions with a variety of techniques. Working in a person centred way I offer a safe warm environment allowing you to express your feelings & talk through any problems worries and anxieties you may have In a confidential empathic setting without judgement.
Although I am a person centred counsellor I also have qualifications in other areas such as CBT & working with children & young people. I also have a enhanced dbs certificate.
I have previously worked in a GP practice for two years seeing a wide range of clients working with Anxiety, Stress, Depression Generalised anxiety, Panic, addiction along with other issues and currently work within a charity setting offering counselling across all spectrums.
Please feel free to call or email me for a chat regarding any worries or concerns regarding what is going on for you at the minute, with no obligation to begin counselling with me. I can also offer telephone counselling by prior arrangement.
