Paulette Montroe MBACP Accredited, Counselling Children, Teenagers and Adults
I have been working with Children, Young People and Adults for over eighteen years. I am a professional counsellor and have been privileged to help many people including the very young and their families. I have worked in schools for over fourteen years and I am very experienced; including children with special needs. Some families find themselves in a crisis and will need support. It has been lovely to guide them into helping themselves and witnessing the fantastic changes that can be made.
I offer safe conditions for adults to talk and explore what is worrying them and help them find the right way forward. You will find a way of learning about yourself, building upon your self-awareness, self-worth and confidence. You will learn new ways of thinking and coping with things that will last a life time. Children will feel safe while being able to use therapeutic interventions such as the sand tray, puppets, arts and crafts and a range of other materials. They will be able to express feelings and emotions, learn new ways of coping while in supportive conditions.
I place high importance on the therapeutic relationship where you will be free to express yourself in a supportive and non-judgmental environment.
I offer a flexible approach, professional and offer a confidential service.
I am very experienced in the field of therapy and have a calm, friendly manner.
I have been qualified since 2002 and have worked on a voluntary basis for several charities, several secondary schools, employee assistance programmes/occupational health and other private insurance companies.
I can offer appointments on a Monday/Friday and most evenings.
I have been a qualified Supervisor since 2008 supervising other counsellors, therapists, School safeguarding team members and Managers. Please enquire for information.
