Hi, my name is Pauline. I decided to train as a counsellor after realising how beneficial it had been for me.
I can offer an accepting and listening ear to anyone who needs it, whatever your issue. Life can sometimes be difficult for all of us. I hope I can help you find your way through any bad times you are experiencing, enabling happier times and fuller enjoyment of life.
What can counselling do for you?
Maybe the best way to answer this question is to let you know how counselling benefited me. Counselling helped me to feel empowered and in control of my own life and destiny. Having experienced a difficult situation I was able to look at my life in a more positive way.
As your counsellor I will ensure that you feel heard, understood and not alone. Whatever is troubling you, we can work together to help you find a satisfactory solution.
Person-Centred counselling works on the idea that you are the expert on your own life. In a counselling session with me, you can expect the space and time to explore how you're feeling without being told what to do or being judged on the decisions you make.
I offer counselling to anyone who feels they need it, and have had a variety of challenging situations to overcome myself, which include bereavement, relationship issues and challenges to my own confidence and self-esteem. Facing these has equipped me with a high degree of empathy. Overcoming them has taught me that this is possible and provided me with valuable insights on how to help others to do the same.
In addition to this I have many years of experience working with teenagers and young people. Including those on the Autistic Spectrum, with ADHD and with Learning Difficulties.
Sessions are available week days and evenings in Leamington Spa and Coventry. On street parking is available for two hours at both venues and there are local buses and trains within walking distance.
My session fee is £25.00 for the initial session to give us the opportunity to see if we would like to work together. Ongoing fees are £45.00. Concessionary rates are available following a discussion.

Training & Experience
I am trained in Person-Centred Counselling and currently work in this capacity, not only in my own practice, but also for an organisation that supports individuals suffering multiple trauma.
For many years, prior to becoming a counsellor, I worked as a mentor with students who are physically and/or learning disabled. In this role I facilitated the students to develop a stronger sense of themselves and help them understand and manage their feelings and their behaviour. I have taken the skills and experience I acquired in this role into my counselling practice. Often it isn't simply a counselling session, but a broader therapy session.
I have experience of working with individuals who have suffered all kinds of trauma, whether that be childhood abuse, including sexual abuse, bereavement or post-traumatic stress. I also have experience of working with individuals who have a mental health diagnosis.
I think that working as a mentor with young disabled people and as a counsellor, has provided me with a strong affinity for individuals with diverse life experiences. This, together with my life experiences, has led me to a point at which I am able to say with confidence that I can provide a truly non-judgemental service, whatever the issues.
I have studied to degree level in Applied Social Science, providing me with the theoretical understanding to back-up my experience.
