My Name is Jeanette Forsyth and I am known as Nettie. My theory is Person Centred and I work as a Counsellor, Psychotherapist and a Behaviour Strategist using a variety of Psychology Theories.
My organisation is called Challenging-Behaviour Counselling & Wellbeing Services. My counselling work has been with many differing people and ages from Children, Teens, Young Adults and Adults.
I am not a Play Therapist or an Art therapist but do use Creative Therapy within my work where needed. We have a registered ESA puppy in training: Dog called Neo. Neo certainly helps with creativity and we offer walk & talk sessions on request of clients.
Our organisation has other subcontractor Counsellors: waiting lists are minimal and needs can be matched.
We have a Charitable organisation "Friends of Challenging-Behaviour" that offers counselling for people (criteria to be met) who are not able to pay (or make a small donation) due to financial difficulties caused by being a victim of child abuse, domestic violence or personal health inability: this work is undertaken by Volunteer Counsellors, looking for more hours to be accredited or Counsellors in training. Please request on contact.
Since 2014 I have been a volunteer Counsellor at a centre for women, working with issues in domestic violence (probation, drugs, alcohol, emotional physical sexual abuse, rape). My area of knowledge is Domestic Violence, Child abuse, ASD, Challenging-Behaviour, Anxiety and Anger as well as other topics.
We have group sessions For adults and children and do CPD and Parenting workshops. See website for more details.
