H Chinnery - Counsellor, CBT Therapist & Supervisor: MBACP
Hi, I'm H, I'm a qualified person centred counsellor, CBT therapist, counselling supervisor and relationship therapist. I have in-depth experience working with: anxiety disorders, depression, panic attacks, addiction, bereavement and relationships. I currently work with two charities: a sexual violence centre and an addiction centre working with issues from sexual trauma such as PTSD (rewind technique), self-harm, low self-esteem, alcohol and drug misuse. I have experience of working with the LGBTQ community and asylum seekers. I work with individuals and couples and young people ( 12+) in a safe, confidential and empathetic capacity.
Previous counselling settings include counselling within a hospice and facilitating bereavement groups, CBT therapist based at a homeless refuge, Anxiety UK (anxiety and panic disorders). I have also fostered children and understand those particular complexities. I have a wide ranging experience of people of all backgrounds and walks of life.
I work from two locations: Ellesmere Port primarily on a Monday day (this location is wheelchair accessible) and Heswall: some evenings and Saturdays.
I can work in a person-centred, CBT or integrative approach as required.
Counselling sessions are booked for 50 minute time slots, the first session is an informal information gathering and assessment and we will continue from there - initially it is recommended sessions are held on a weekly basis.
If you have any questions or queries please do ask. I am happy to offer a complementary initial phone call or email to discuss your needs and the way forward before booking a session. Take care and I hope to speak to you soon.
