Pamela Jones BA, DipPsych, Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, MBACP (Accred)
I am an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Graduate Member of the British Psychological Society. I am also a Member of The EMDR Association UK and Ireland.
I believe that human beings are capable of change and of making their lives better. As we are all different, we need to be treated in different ways which are uniquely suited to us. My approach to counselling is Humanistic and Pluralistic. I will work together with my clients to find the most appropriate and effective ways to enable them to deal with their problems and to become the people they want to be. Whatever issues my clients bring, I will work with them in a place of safety, with non-judgemental acceptance and with respect to confidence.
I work with individual adults of all ages. I see clients in Monmouth near the centre of town in a pleasant and easily accessible place with free parking and within walking distance of the bus station. I also see clients in Hereford.
I am married and I have two grown-up children. Having lived in several different countries before coming to live in the UK, I have much cross-cultural knowledge and experience.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have over 20 years of counselling experience, working with counselling charities and in private practice, which gave me the opportunity to work with people from diverse backgrounds and with a variety of issues.
I have a European Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling from The Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB). I am also a trained EMDR therapist. EMDR (Eye Movement and Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is recommended by NICE, National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
My qualifications also include BA in Liberal Arts (Biology Major) and a Graduate Diploma in Psychology.
I am an Accredited Member of BACP and I agree to uphold and abide by their Ethical Framework and follow their Guidance on Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. As such, I have regular supervision for my counselling work and I engage in Continual Professional Development by taking training courses regularly.
