Jodie Walker BSc Counselling RBACP
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor, registered with the BACP. Being registered means I adhere to the BACP's ethical framework of Good Practice and keep up to date with regular continued professional development. My training has enabled me to learn many approaches to counselling, some of which include; person-centred and cognitive behavioural therapy. This gives me the flexibility for us to have that shared understanding of which approach is best suited for you.
"Nothing is as bad as we think it is"
Taking that first step of asking for help in my opinion, is the hardest part of therapy. Some of us have been silent about our difficulties for far too long. Perhaps ashamed, not aware or not knowing who to ask.
There is no shame in asking for help and having therapy does not mean something is wrong. We all need a safe place, a listening ear and a non-judgemental stance to be who we are.
Perhaps that is a burning question- who am I? We can work together to explore that. Therapy opens the door to becoming self-aware. Counselling offers a confidential place for you to just be yourself - no filters. I hope to help people find their voices, their identities and to empower people to realise their own potential.
Together we will gain an insight into your main difficulties and look at your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and this will enable you to turn the volume down on your emotional suffering. The therapeutic relationship is a key part in the work I do and so I offer an initial assessment for us to get to know each other and for you to decide if you would like to begin your counselling journey.
