Pauline Wallace Counselling - A safe space to be heard.
Hi, welcome and thank you for viewing my professional counselling profile page. Are you struggling with anxiety and stress, Bereavement or something else? I can help.
I can offer you a safe space, one to one counselling, in which to explore your thoughts and feelings to find the best way to support you, help you to express your emotional pain and find your inner resources to deal with what is troubling you. If you struggle to find the words, there are many creative ways to express thoughts and feelings. There is a lot of power in being able to talk to a counsellor confidentially, knowing that anything you say will not be judged. It can be life changing.
Is something worrying you? Are you are struggling with Loss, Bereavement, Sadness, Anxiety, Stress, Anger, Shame, Depression or a particularly stressful situation
We all need help at times to deal with whatever life throws at us. Emotional Distress shows up in many ways and can have a huge impact on our lives. It may cause difficulties with relationships at home and at work. It can impact on self-worth and self- esteem.
I understand that asking for help can be difficult; you have already taken a courageous step by looking for a Counsellor who seems like a good fit for you. Talking about your concerns doesn't make you weak; it makes you human. I strongly believe that our mental health is as important as our physical health, and one can affect the other. Attitudes to Mental health are beginning to change with recent news items; particularly helped recently by Prince Harry stating that mental health must be taken seriously.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by their Code of Ethics. I have over twenty years experience of working with people with a terminal illness and also working with the bereaved for those family and friends who are left behind. I have comfortable rooms in Emsworth, with a nearby Car Park.
What we discuss will remain confidential unless you or a minor are in danger from harm. I would always attempt to discuss this with you first.
To arrange an appointment please e-mail me and I will contact you as soon as possible.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
