4B Regent Street
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 too much 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 benefitted 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 has provided me with empathy and insight. However, I consider my specialty to be working with teenagers and young people as I have many years of experience of doing so. Including those on the autistic spectrum or with ADHD or similar.
Sessions are available week day evenings in Leamington Spa. On street parking is available for two hours 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 £40.00. Concessionary rates are available following a discussion.

Training & Experience
I am trained in Person-Centred Counselling and currently work in this capacity at Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre with refugees.
In addition to this, I work as a mentor with students who are physically and/or learning disabled. In this role I facilitate the students to develop a stronger sense of themselves and help them understand and manage their feelings and their behaviour. I have many years experience working with individuals who have a learning disability.
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 both working as a mentor with young disabled people and as a counsellor has provided me with a strong affinity for individuals with diverse experiences. This, and my own life experiences, have led me to a point at which I am able to say with confidence that I can provide a truly non-judgemental service to my clients, whatever their issues.
I have a background in Social Science having studied to degree level in Applied Social Science, this provides me with the theoretical understanding to back-up my experience.
