About me

Hello my name is Shauna,

Firstly thank you for clicking on my profile, I am a fully qualified and insured integrative Counsellor and Registered with the National Counselling Society.

Before I became a counsellor I worked within social care settings for mental health, disabilities and learning disabilities. I also went to University and studied Midwifery, I think these careers have helped me to identify communication skills and people skills are very important when building trust, and trust is very important within counselling. 

I can change my approach to adapt to the individual clients needs, I use Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Transactional analysis theory, Attachment theory and others that i feel the client needs, respecting each person to be unique. I provide a calm, confidential, safe and non judgemental space where you will feel you are heard.

I believe everyone deserves the time and space to be listened too, i appreciate how difficult it can be to look into therapy and to start it, i would like you to know i am here to support, not to judge, and i’m here to listen, and help you to achieve the best version of yourself.

I work with men, women and children, for 50 minute weekly sessions for as long as you feel you need. I work on a short and long term basis.

if you would like to call or email me then we can set up an initial session, so we can talk about what you would like to get out of counselling, if your then happy to continue i’ll set up a second session, and will arrange to see you weekly or fortnightly. 

Thank you for taking the time to read, and I look forward to hearing from you, and if i’m not the counsellor that fits for you then I really do hope your journey in counselling goes well.
