Robyn Hughes, MBACP, BA(Hons), Level 4 Counselling Practice
1:1 counselling/psychotherapy; small therapeutic groups.
The Connection Space works with people by developing a deep foundation of trust, integrity and respect, shaping a safe place to creatively explore common human experiences that may be causing difficulty - fear, sadness, worry, loss, inner conflict, relationship difficulties, trauma etc. Young and older people can access this service.
Integrative counselling techniques are utilised and adapted to suit individual needs. The opportunity to explore issues at a psychodynamic level are also available. This might involve considering "history in the present", childhood experiences and relationships; the internal and external relationships we all have; and patterns that appear to re-occur in our lives.
Signposting to other services and sharing of resources is a key part of the service. Developing resources to sell/share to other practitioners.
