Pauline Hill BACP reg Dip Couns
I am warm, kind, mature and caring. I truly believe that everyone can find their own way and answers with the right support and above all by being truly heard without judgement.
I have experience of working with clients who are having relationship difficulties, with a partner, child, family member or friend and will help you to find a way to accept your situation and move forward.
I have had much success working with clients who have experienced trauma and young people who are anxious, stressed or feeling overwhelmed for example with exams or from being bullied. I have worked as a School Counsellor with young people aged 11-18 for the past five years.
I offer regular 50 minute sessions (ideally weekly) and am happy to see adults and young people, in a lovely private room within my home, which is set in the quiet Wiltshire village of Biddestone with tranquil surroundings and plenty of driveway parking. There is also a bus route from Chippenham with a short 5 minute walk to my house.
I really understand how hard it can be to fully trust and open up to someone, but I also know the true benefit of doing so, and am ready to listen in a non-judgemental, caring way.
I really look forward to hearing from you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a person centred counsellor, with a diploma in counselling and a fully registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I have worked with adults who have suffered domestic violence, post natal depression, anxiety and depression and family problems, including divorce, affairs and communication. As well as young clients who have self-harmed, attempted suicide, suffered bullying and low self esteem, felt overwhelmed with exam pressures or from being bullied. I believe from feedback and success within a School setting that I have a real knack of communicating and most importantly understanding teenagers who may be struggling with anxiety and feelings in an increasingly challenging world.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer an initial session where we can talk about what's going on for you, giving us the opportunity to get to know each other and see how we might work together. to resolve the issues you are facing.
Each 50-minute counselling session thereafter costs £40.
Payment can be made by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
