Rosie Freeman BSc, Dip, Ad Dip, MBACP
Welcome to my profile. There are many different reasons why you maybe looking for counselling, you may be feeling anxious, depressed, having relationship difficulties, loss, trauma, self-esteem issues, identity issues, attachment issues, stress, anger or other difficulties in processing and managing your thoughts and feelings.
Often it can be rare in life that we have the space to be able to reflect and process what is going on. I believe it is so important to feel comfortable with your counsellor. I aim to create a relationship with you and provide a space in which you can talk about all aspects of your life without judgment or criticism.
I've been working within Psychology/ Counselling services for over 11 years with a variety of experience with different concerns, issues and ways of working. My main training is within Psychodynamic counselling which aims to look at how our early life experiences shape the way we view ourselves, the world and others in our lives. I aim to draw on these patterns and encourage you to observe and reflect on your own thoughts, emotions and beliefs. Where appropriate I may draw on other models of therapy such as CBT.
I am able to offer both short term (6-10 session) and open ended long term therapy. Sessions will be at the same time each week and last 50 minutes.
I feel very strongly that it is the counselling relationship that helps to effect change so I think it is important to see whether you feel comfortable working with me. I encourage clients to have an initial meeting to explore what has brought them to counselling and whether they feel my approach is right for them.
My practice is based in a specifically converted building at my home, this is a separate building from the main house and offers a comfortable and confidential location for clients. I am also able to rent a room just outside of the city centre in Peterborough. Both locations have public transport links. Alternatively, if it is difficult for you to attend sessions physically I am able to offer online counselling using Skype.
Please feel free to contact me either via telephone, email or via a contact form on my website (all links are above) with any questions or to set up an initial meeting. Please leave me an answerphone message if you wish for me to return your call. I aim to return calls/ reply within 24 hours.
Please explore my website for more information about my practice, links to my blog and socials for regular musings, sharing experiences and insights.
