Sheila Kelly Registered Member of BACP
I am a Person-Centred Counsellor. I believe passionately that a 'talking-therapy' can help you through the most difficult of times. For the past 17 years I have worked with individuals or couples in the UK & Spain, on issues such as:
Anxiety, depression, relationship breakdown, bereavement, financial worries, long term illness & life limiting illness, Suicide of a loved one, Suicidal thoughts.
I feel that by taking advantage of counselling and a period of personal development, in a confidential and non-judgemental environment, will help you to regain confidence and clarity of your particular issues.
I work with clients on an open-ended basis, with the aim of enabling clients time and space to reflect on their lives, to decide on a future direction that will help them better understand and accept change. I specialise in couple counselling.
I have practised in a number of settings, including;
NHS - Heartlands Hospital; Solihull Bereavement Counselling Service, Brockhill Prison Probation service,
Healthy Gay Life Project and Private Practice.
I have taught on 'Introduction to Counselling Skills' and 'Personal Development' courses for Solihull College (2002 - 2007).
What to expect.
I find that once-weekly sessions provide a good rhythm for clients to get the best out of counselling. All sessions are provided in a safe environment. You will be helped to explore your issues, to challenge the unhelpful feelings and fears which inhibit your growth. You will be offered strategies and an insight into your own personal development.
Obviously sometimes this can be tough work, especially at first. It can be painful to confront those feelings which are difficult or 'holding you back'. I believe we all have the right to be our own person, to achieve our own potential. I promise I will help to support you through those bad times, enabling you to grow and move forward.
I see clients in Atherstone and surrounding areas. Home visits and SKYPE sessions are available, conditions apply.
