Shirley Archibald-William Dip.Couns, Reg.BACP
Welcome to my profile.
I believe we are all unique and deserve to find resolutions to concerns that affect our well-being and relationships.
Feeling trapped by negative and empty emotions, are hard to deal with on a daily basis and can cause harm to those we interact with, including our loved ones. The impact can be devastating and we, in turn may start blaming and/or hurting self for not addressing our concerns.
Together, we can explore these issues. I offer you a safe, comfortable and confidential space where you have time to address the concerns that you are finding difficult to address on your own. In a bid to develop positive self worth, I offer you empathy, respect, sensitivity and compassion, as you uncover the reality of your concerns and find a way to embrace your values and enable self healing.
I have a private practice in Ealing, West London and can also work via Skype.
Let us meet for a free ½ hour ‘get to know you’ session, as you decide whether we can work together.

How I work
I am open to facilitating clients on a 1-1 and couples basis - face to face, online & telephone counselling.
I offer long & short term work at the clients pace, to make sure they achieve fulfilment & empowerment to focus on their needs.
Though my experience extends to working with men, women, children, teenagers & adolescents I generally work with individuals and couples.
I have extensive bereavement counselling & substance & alcohol addictions training. I am a qualified person-centred therapist & use a range of modalities to enable my client(s) to process their issues.
What to expect
You are able to work at your own pace as you share your issues, that have been difficult to deal with. My clients are always in total control of a session’s content.
I will be working via Skype from the 10.12.2018 through 17.06.2019; thereafter 1:1 sessions will resume. If this is acceptable, please make contact.
I invite you to a complimentary 30 minute session, where you will be welcomed into my comfortable therapy room, West London.
Why choose me
In our initial session, you will have the opportunity to realise whether your needs & expectations can be met in future sessions. We can then look to arrange future dates/sessions should you wish to continue.
I work in line with the BACP Ethical Framework, & work in a personable, caring & compassionate way with all clients.
Living is not just about existence but about experiencing our own values.
Finding the true significance of living, without judgement, emotional pain, anxiety & stress. Adapting, growing & believing in self.
Connecting with self.
We deserve to find, appreciate & love self.
