Rick Brown, Counselling At Home
I am an experienced person-centred counsellor able to work with individual adults of all ages.
I offer home visits which can be particularly useful to those with transport and mobility issues, and those struggling with social anxiety.
There can be times in our lives when things feel just too much.
This is often triggered by a life changing event, usually loss – this may be in the form of loss of a loved one, loss of health, loss of independence, even the loss of happiness. Having the opportunity to share how we feel when loss happens can be difficult – we don’t want to burden those around us or appear as though we are no longer coping. We can then feel stuck and alone with our loss.
This is when counselling can be invaluable – to have the opportunity to share how we are really feeling with someone trained and qualified in a safe environment has the potential to bring a different perspective. Knowing we have a special time that is ‘just for me’ to express our deepest and sometimes desperate feelings can give hope and release from pervasive isolation.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a diploma in person-centred counselling.
I have done additional training specific to bereavement and attachment theory.
I have experience working with adults experiencing loss – loss of many types and especially loss of loved ones through death including suicide. I have a particular interest in working with older adults and those experiencing the challenges brought through dementia.
I am able to work with those who are experiencing dementia themselves and those experiencing the struggles brought by dementia in a loved one. Whether you are a son or daughter, husband or wife, or close friend of someone with dementia.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer an initial assessment, one hour session free of charge.
I charge £45.00 for ongoing one hour sessions.
