About me

Hello, I'm Shelley Dip.Couns,BSc (Hons)

I started my journey helping people many years ago in a primary school (which I am still at). I loved the work I did with children and also their parents. I was so interested in what makes people tick, that I decided to enrol on a Psychology and counselling degree. I juggled working, children and completing my degree, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I carried on my studies completing an award in special Educational Needs Qualification and then 2 years to achieve my diploma in counselling. I have a wealth of experience in both adults and children and thoroughly enjoying all the aspects of counselling and helping people feels like a real privilege, people trusting me with their most confidential stuff.

I believe that you matter, so putting yourself first is so important to you and those closest to you. Talking over issues we struggle to manage with someone who listens, is fundamental to achieving our full potential. If we carry our issues around with us and do not give ourselves or our loved ones the chance to express how we feel, we will never feel free to take on opportunities that are offered, move forward and fulfil our hopes and dreams.I aim to offer you the space to access your own wisdom, believing that you are the expert in your life and you will be able to recognise what you need to heal yourself. Listening in a non-judgemental way enabling you feel confident to resolve issues and difficult situations whilst feeling supported along the journey.

I am a registered member of The National Counselling Society.

When you first decide to come to me for counselling we can meet initially so you can decide if counselling is for you, or to help you decide if I am the right person to support your needs. Or you can, if you wish chat on the phone to check these things out.

If you feel that you are comfortable with me we can have an initial session, whereby I will try to get an understanding of your needs and make a plan of how many sessions you may need, this can range for just a few, to more long term, it is totally up to you.
