Shane Begbie UKCP Reg Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
Hi, if you are reading this and wondering about having some counselling then you've come to the right place!
My work is all about helping people to overcome problems such as anxiety, low self-esteem, eating disorders and relationship problems.
My training as an integrative therapist allows me to draw on a range of theories so I can tailor my work specifically to you. I provide a safe and confidential space for us to explore what's going on in your life to be causing you unease or distress. We might also look at issues from your past. Often the symptoms described above can be manifestations of unresolved emotional trauma. I will also use our therapeutic relationship to help you explore your relationship with yourself and others.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have over 10 years of counselling experience, gained through private practice and different counselling charities.
I am a UKCP registered psychotherapeutic counsellor and a registered member of the BACP. For the past three years I have worked as a senior counsellor for a rape crisis charity, counselling survivors of sexual violence, whether historical or recent and including child sexual abuse.
I have a BSc (Hons) Integrative Counselling. I also undertake 50 hours of continual professional development a year as a requisite of the UKCP to keep my skills up to date.
