Ronda Pearce MBACP MA BA
Thank you for visiting my page.
Like you i have experienced ups and downs in life. I have always worked directly with people, firstly within education and latterly as a counsellor and psychotherapist.
I first came into the world of counselling after experiencing loss myself. The support I received had such a profound healing impact I retrained completing a Masters Degree in Counselling at The University of Nottingham. Initially i counselled young people, but continued to gain a further post graduate qualification at the University to work with adults. I completed a years placement at Rape Crisis before I started my counselling work within the community.
I specialise in anxiety, stress management, loss, trauma, self belief and relationships . A few years ago I suffered from health related anxiety, which has given me a first hand knowledge of how challenging this can be to live with on a daily basis. I did further research and training which now enables me to help empower others to reduce their anxiety and bring about positive change.
I base my work on a growth model, rather than a medical, diagnostic model.
It’s based on this concept of thriving, reaching towards your potential and understanding yourself and your thought processes. This enables you to experience empathy, acceptance and genuineness in a therapeutic relationship. I am also a great believer that knowledge is power so work together with you on a shared understanding of what’s happening for you holistically.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and psychotherapists (BACP), as such I adhere to their ethical framework and good practice guideline
I offer a confidential safe space for you to explore any difficulties or challenges you maybe experiencing; offering honesty, trust and empowerment.
