About me

Are you asking How counselling can help you?

Great!... You are now in the right place. My name is Heidi, I live in Lower Earley Reading, Berkshire. lovely Meeting you!

Your search for a counsellor/therapist shows that, you may have an issues or situation that perhaps you want to talk to someone. Issues that make you feel embarrassed, shame, guilt, sad 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.

Perhaps struggling with parenting, divorcing or separation or just relationship problems, sexual assault etc, counselling/therapy can do all these and more.

Perhaps relief from mental stress example anxieties, depression, or paranoia,Trauma, PTSD, BPD or DID, NPD. 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 state of relief or feel better.

I have currently started to provide supervision placement for students who are looking for a supervisor, and supervising qualified counsellors and therapist.

I am an Integrative Therapist a supervisor, this means that I get to practice different models to my clients and supervises, for example, PCT, CBT , T A, Gestalt therapy, Humanistic Approach. The Imago Dialogue, The Development Model.  7 eyed model, IDM and Ethical Problem Solving.

In my practice, no size fits it all. Therefore, I strongly believe that using different modalities is the key to making sure that your needs are met accordingly.

what to expect on your session

You will have your 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.

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 added 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 working towards a certification for supervison through counselling Tutor. I am equipped to use different models to enable you help you and your clients to their desired goals.

I undergo different CPD learning each month up to 33 hours a year to enable me support you well.

I am an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society and I am supervised under the Professional Standards Authority, the National Counselling Society who supervise me to make sure that I am up to date with information and knowledge to enable me support you well..

I have Insurance which protects me and you while working together.

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

I worked with the charity called Pilot Light House based in Woodley in the past. I offer reduced prices to those who cannot afford full fee, as giving back to my community.
