Heidi Buckingham MBACP Dip Counselling Service
Feeling overwhelmed? Struggling with life? Don’t know where to turn? When things seem so out of our control feeling normal again can seem impossible & we can feel stuck or unable to move on. These are feelings we all experience as life throws up all sorts of unexpected twists & turns that knock us of balance.
The idea of counselling may seem like a daunting process, sharing your most intimate feelings & thoughts with a complete stranger. However sometimes talking through with friends & loved ones isn’t always ideal for various reasons. As a counsellor my aim is to help and support you through these difficult times, encouraging you to explore your emotions, thoughts & feelings. I am someone without bias who can listen to your story and then step into your world and see how it is for you; making sure that you are heard & understood.
I believe as individuals we all hold the ability to realise changes for ourselves if given the right conditions and encouragement. Counselling can help to do this by offering a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space, which allows the potential for full exploration of your own self-development.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have experience of working within a private clinical setting seeing clients with various difficulties. I also have experience of working for a charitable organisation providing support for survivors of sexual violence. This included men, women and children. During my time there I also worked with family members of those that had been affected by such traumatic experiences, they are often over looked and also need support.
As a registered member of the BACP, I am committed to working ethically in the best interests of the client and my profession. I am dedicated in continuing my own Professional development by attending workshops & undertaking additional qualifications so that I am able to provide you, the client, with the best possible service.
