Pauline Philips Reg. MBACP, Supervisor
Hello, I am Pauline and I am a qualified counsellor and member of the BACP, I offer caring, non-judgmental and confidential counselling to enable you to talk about your thoughts and feelings or any difficulties you are currently experiencing.
If you are finding life a struggle at the moment and can't seem to cope or you have an issue that you are finding difficult to deal with, then I believe counselling can help.
I work with an integrative approach with a focus on the relationship between the client and counsellor, which I believe is fundamental to the success of therapy. I combine aspects of several models of therapy depending on the needs of each unique client. The aim of counselling is to help you talk about a problem and then work together to discover a solution that is right for you. I offer a flexible and thoughtful approach to each client’s therapy.
Counselling can help with many difficult situations and I have experience of working with a wide range of client issues, including anxiety, depression, panic attacks, low self esteem, OCD, relationship difficulties, bereavement and loss and problems with anger. I also work with bereaved clients in a hospice setting.
I offer an initial session to explore your current concerns and expectations of counselling and I aim to answer any questions you may have, so you can then decide whether I am the right counsellor for you. There is no obligation to continue but if you decide to I offer both short-term solution based therapy or longer term therapy.
Please call or e-mail me.
