June Webb, MA, PG Diploma, Reg.MBACP. Focusing Practitioner.
Desired change comes from a place of understanding that we have a choice in all things. Only you can take a step towards the change you desire. Whatever life is like, change can happen. When would now be a good time to start?
How counselling can help.
I integrate several compatible approaches but my main approach is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy which integrates Cognitive Behavioural Therapy with Mindfulness skills building. Whatever approach a counsellor utilises, the therapeutic relationship is the bedrock of the therapeutic encounter. It differs from our usual human relationships in that it provides a space for you to express your thoughts and feelings where you will be listened to without judgement or condition. You are offered the safety to say what might otherwise remain unsaid and we will explore together whatever concerns you, however large or small.
My approach is interactive and you have the time and space to explore your thoughts and feelings. I facilitate the definition of problems (if unclear), and focus on possible solutions where you develop an action plan of your choosing. This can then be evaluated and modified as needed. I do not give advice, diagnose or attempt to solve your issues, but facilitate the finding of your own solutions. I will provide information if this might be useful and appropriate but only as an offer you are free to act upon or otherwise. You are the expert in your life and I respect this unconditionally.
What to expect on your first session.
We will meet for a first exploratory meeting to find out more about each other, about why you might find counselling helpful, the issues that you want to explore and what you want to achieve. It is an opportunity for us to ask questions and to establish if we feel we are able to work together. I appreciate it is difficult to meet with someone and talk about personal issues. I will do my best to help you feel at ease.
The first session will be half the cost of the full sessions. All our meetings are confidential and I abide by the BACP Code of Guidance in regard to their Ethical Framework. If you would like to view this it is available on their website.
Areas of Counselling.
I have specified these areas but I am not of the view that "you" are the issue or problem you may be seeking support with. I do not work with "bereavement" as something abstract for instance but with the unique person you are who is experiencing all the emotions and issues around the loss of a significant someone. The same approach applies to the other categories listed.
Some feedback from clients I have worked with includes:-
"Practicing these skills have helped me with my anxiety, I notice I don’t have the panic attacks as frequently as before and I am managing to start to do the things that really matter now to me."
"My family, friends and work colleagues are noticing differences in me since I have been working with you. I feel I can let go of the past hurts and worries and make a new life for myself. I don't worry now about the things which would stay with me for days on end."
"Focusing has been really helpful in gaining insights and clarity into my situation in life. Thank you so much for accompanying me on this present journey."
