Rosie Fernandez-Eagling PgDip Couns. MBACP (Accred)
0791 937 1663
Experienced registered/accredited Counsellor with over 13 years experience.
What can you expect from me?
I work from home in a quiet area of Chells with street parking and a bus stop within two minutes' walk. You will be welcomed into my private consulting room where you will be listened to without judgement.
My values: Welcoming, Kind, Positive, Respectful, Professional
Types of Issues. I have worked for many years as a therapist for the NHS and as a School Counsellor in Hertfordshire. I have a private practice in the Chells area of Stevenage.
I work with most issues, such as ...
Anxiety, depression, panic attacks, social anxiety, bereavement and loss, redundancy, career changes, relationships, divorce, domestic abuse, sexual exploitation/abuse, people who are victims of crime, low self-esteem, self-harm, eating disorders, bullying, sexuality, cultural and identity issues, relationship and social aspects of Asperger's Syndrome and High Functioning Autism, personal and professional development, anger management, assertiveness skills, confidence building and philosophical questioning ...
What approach do I use?
I work integratively using a range of approaches depending on the needs of each individual. For example, I may use a 'psychodynamic' approach to help you understand how painful feelings in the present may have roots in the past but to help you deal with feelings of anxiety that you may be experiencing, I may use a 'Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy approach'.
I offer a 90-minute confidential Consultation Assessment to begin to explore the issues you are facing. If relevant to your circumstances, we will assess and evaluate any levels of depression and anxiety and the impact your feelings have on your general wellbeing in your day to day life. We will discuss how we might work together, offer recommendations or signpost you to any resources that might be available locally including NHS support. You will be able to say as little or as much as you feel able to and there is no pressure to stay for the whole 90 minutes or to continue with more sessions. I will answer any questions you may have.
How often do we have to meet? It is usual to meet once a week for 50 minutes sessions at specific times. This allows you to talk through any issues and be supported as you begin to experience a new view of the world and for you to notice changes. However, I am also aware that it may not always be possible to have weekly sessions and I am happy to be flexible to meet your needs around your availability.
How long will it take? This is a hard question to answer and depends on the issues you are coming to therapy with. At the very least I will encourage you to think about your goal in coming and we will review your progress on the next session or a defined date in the future.
Confidentiality. All that takes place within our sessions is confidential. Unless we have agreed to inform other people of our work then all that we discuss remains within the session. You can of course, discuss our sessions with anyone that you wish. I, however, ensure that confidentiality is maintained with the information that I keep. The only exception to this is if you tell me that you or someone else is at risk of harm in which case I am bound by my code of ethics to breach confidentiality to offer protection and safety. Do ask me for clarification if you have any questions.
My fees are stated below and payment is made at the end of each session.
