About me

Are you asking How counselling can help you?

Great!... You are now in the right place. Your search for a counsellor shows that, you may have an issues or situation that perhaps you want to talk about. Issues that you feel embarrassed, shame, guilt or perhaps you are overwhelmed with emotions maybe due to your recent changes in your circumstances, such as loss of a family member, broken relationship, feeling anxious, depressed or feeling sad, feeling unloved, unwanted, low self esteem or even struggling with parenting. Counselling can do all these and more such as relief to mental illness example anxieties, depression, or paranoia. You will learn that; you have always had an answer to your pressing issues. You will discover that you just needed someone to help you navigate those blind spots and bring you to a total clarity of what is happening to you right now and arrive to a solution.

Hello, My name is Heidi. I currently live in Lower Earley Reading Berkshire. Nice to meet you!

I am an Integrative Therapist, this means that I get to practice different models to my clients, for example, Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Transaction Analysis, Gestalt therapy, Humanistic Approach and Hypnotherapy. In my practice, no size fits it all. Therefore, I strongly believe that using different modalities is the key to making sure that my client’s needs are met accordingly.

what to expect on your session

We will have our first consultation by going through verbal and written contracts, including when to meet and time. I will listen to your presenting issues; we will then discuss which issues you would like to go through first. You oversee your session. You will decide how the session should go. I am here to assist you discover what you already know.

What I offer

I have learnt in the past few years that a good rapport with my client is the key to get my clients to feel more at home.

I offer a safe comfortable environment where you can relax and share issues that you feel may be difficult to share with your immediate family or friends. It is a place where you can find relief from your mental distress.

Training, qualifications & experience

Back in 1997, I studied IT hoping to work in an IT company, 2 years in my course I knew that IT was not for me, therefore, I decided to stop and join Health and Social Care field, which I loved ever since. I have had the privilege of working with people who have mental illness and learning disabilities for over 17 years.

I did an apprenticeship in the sector for occupations in social care and care of children and young people. I have attained Advanced level adult and social care, which has helped me serve the people I have supported well. It has been a life-changing experience for me because not every day is the same day at work.

We face challenges and sometimes you don’t know what to expect when you turn up at work. It is been my pleasure to serve people or help people to enhance their way of life especially with those with mental illness and learning difficulties.

Reason for choosing this profession.

I felt I needed to grow in knowledge on mental health issues, therefore, I decided to learn more about it and add professional skills to what I have already experienced. This led me to acquire AIM Awards in skills and theories in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapeutic and Counselling. I am awarded a level 2 Certificate in counselling couples or marriage. I am Certified by Counselling Tutor to work safely online and telephone counselling .  I am an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society and I am supervised under the Professional Standards Authority National Counselling Society.

These professional skills have helped me serve numbers of people in my community in the last few years as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor.

I have also worked with the charity called Pilot Light House based in Woodley.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

You may be someone who struggles with anger issues, bite your nails or is a shopaholic, abusive relationship, feeling sad, anxious, depressed, suffers loss or other. Your negative behaviour did not just happen, there is a reason behind your behaviour. you may be wanting to speak to someone for a long time but never really made a step towards it. you are in the right place; you have met a counsellor/psychotherapist who will lead you through different number of modalities that will be perfect for your needs. I believe there is a power on letting go what keep you captive. Try today, you do not have much to lose but everything to gain. Silence is known to be a killer of our happiness.
