How Can I help?
Talking to a counsellor (me!) can be a good way of offloading or releasing long-held emotions. It can also be helpful in weighing up options and choices. You may have nobody to talk with, or maybe your usual way of dealing with issues is to ignore them and to try to get on with life. Sometimes though, maybe due to a gradual build-up or a sudden life event, it can be a struggle to keep control of emotions, or to understand them. Talking about them in counselling can be a good way of coming to terms with them.
Counselling is not about offering advice or finding a solution for you. It is a team effort where we work together to increase awareness of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and then you are able to consider if these would benefit from change.
What is Person-Centred Counselling?
I am trained in Person-Centred counselling. Person-Centred counselling is a Humanistic therapy developed by Carl Rogers. He believed that given the right environment people will always have the capacity to change in a positive way and move towards being a more complete person who will fulfil more of their potential. The counsellor’s role is to create the right conditions for growth. This is achieved by careful listening, understanding, a capacity for genuine contact and a non-judgemental environment. This working relationship underpins the therapy.
What is CBT?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy considers the interaction between our thoughts, behaviours and feelings. This type of counselling can seem more 'practical' than Person-Centred Counselling in that the client is asked to engage in record keeping and monitor progress outside of the sessions. Different strategies can be learned to help to cope with anxiety and depression.
What can counselling achieve?
Counselling can be beneficial for a wide range of psychological issues; anxiety, depression, trauma, eating problems, OCD to name but a few. It is increasingly used as a way of enhancing personal development, where a person is not in crisis, but may be aware that they are experiencing difficulties with certain areas of their life.
Sessions are normally weekly but can be as often as you are able to commit to. You do not need a Doctor’s referral - just get in contact directly to make an initial appointment.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am qualified as a Clinical Counsellor to Masters level. This is the highest level of practitioner qualification. I also have a level 3 certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and hold an Open University qualification in Psychology. I am also a qualified NLP practitioner and Hypnotherapist. I am a Supervisor of both trainee and experienced counsellors.
I am an Accredited Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and work to their Code of Ethics.
I update my knowledge and skills with regular courses as part of my continuing professional development.
I have a wide range of experience of clients’ presenting issues, and have worked with a spectrum of age groups: teenagers to those in their eighties. I have previously worked as a counsellor in GP surgeries where I saw patients with a range of presenting issues. I engaged in voluntary work with Age UK and I have experience of working with the deaf using a sign language interpreter. I have worked with Shropshire Autonomy and National Autistic Society Shropshire to counsel and coach people with Asperger's.
I was employed as a Civil Servant for many years and in many roles and I have experience of management, and coaching within that setting. I have worked extensively with the elderly, people with disabilities and other vulnerable groups. I also have experience as a volunteer for a mental health charity.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
