Jennifer Harding at Transpose Therapy
About me - I became a counsellor because I had received counselling at a time in my past when I felt unable to cope with life and felt suicidal: I felt amazed that someone (my counsellor) could be trained to work with me to help me find within myself a reason to live. I found the counselling process hard work but can honestly say it changed my life profoundly. I now use my training to help others find the self-empowerment I found within myself, to go out into the world with a new beginning, as I did.
How I will counsel you - I mainly practice Person Centred counselling which is non-directive. This means I will not give you ‘homework’; this leaves time for you to take the lead, all be it guided by me. This may sound daunting, but it means I will not ‘have power’ over you, we will have an equal relationship. So I am non-judgemental and will not tell you what to do. Rather, I will work with you to understand and control your moods, enabling you to work towards gaining more control over your thoughts and life. However, I also practice 'Integrative' counselling. This means I learnt ‘ways to counsel’ from a wide range of models (which basically means I learnt lots of skills - Integrative), meaning I can help with a wide range of issues and will adapt my style as the best for you as our relationship develops.
Where you will see me - I have designed my therapy room to be calm and tranquil, to reflect the way I practice. It is both comfortable and professional. The location is quiet with private parking and is accessible via public transport. I am located in Wrexham, North Wales, not far from Chester.
Training, qualifications & experience
My training - Counsellors traditionally qualify by graduating from a course of study. I took the ‘long’ path, taking 3 additional years of study (evening classes) before embarking upon my Diploma course for qualification. This was because I wanted to take my time to become the best counsellor I could be. I have undertaken over 50 additional training courses including Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, a skill which can be used to alleviate anxiety, panic, stress and depression and can help you with your relationships. This would include teaching you mindfulness meditation in order to alleviate any distressing feelings you may have.
My experience - includes clinical psychotherapy, working with and supporting a diverse range of people from all backgrounds, on many issues, practical and emotional. I am experienced in counselling survivors of sexual abuse, which is my specialist interest area, together with counselling LGBT people and their families. (I am an ally.) I have had additional training for this.
I have a lot more information on my website - www.transposetherapy.co.uk and you are very welcome to contact me to have a chat and to ask questions (no question is too daft!).
