Monika Walde, MBACP
Hello and a warm welcome.
We can experience life as easy-going, wonderful and enjoyable. However, there can be times when we struggle and find it hard to go through life or to cope with life's challenges. During these times it can be difficult to reach out and to talk to someone. This can feel quite lonely. As you are looking for a counsellor, you are taking the first step to no longer facing your difficulties on your own and to seek some help. You may also seek counselling out of curiosity to understand yourself better and to use it for your own personal growth.
There are common reasons that bring people to counselling; however, each individual's story is different. I recognize and value the uniqueness of each person and their experience. Hence, this is integrated into my practice as a counsellor. I will offer you a safe space to share your story and to feel listened to. A space where you feel able to say how it is and you feel understood without being judged. I will be genuine and together we can explore what you bring to counselling.
I have a strong belief in humans' abilities to change, to grow and to heal and I feel positive that counselling can facilitate this.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified integrative counsellor and a registered member with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I studied and qualified at the Iron Mill College in Exeter where I received the Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling (BACP Accredited course) and the Certificate in Counselling. I am currently working towards my accreditation with the BACP.
In my practice, I integrate different humanistic counselling approaches. It is crucial to me to work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework.
My experience as a counsellor includes working with adults of different genders, ages, abilities and ethnicities.
Working as a counsellor is a privilege to me and I am very passionate about the difference counselling can make to people's lives.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer a free initial consultation (50 minutes). The consultation will give us an opportunity to meet and you can tell me what brings you to counselling and what you hope to gain from it. We would meet in a counselling room in the centre of Taunton.
One-to-one counselling is £38 a session. Each session is 50 minutes.
Concessions: I offer concessionary fees to students and people on a low income.
Whatever your reason is to seek counselling, please feel welcome to contact me.
I look forward to hear from you.
