Vicki Routh BACP Registered (Accredited Counsellor / Psychotherapist)
I offer Counselling to Individuals and Couples presenting with a range of issues, some of which are listed below. Don't worry if you're not sure how to express your reasons for attending counselling or what you hope counselling might help with, we can always look at these uncertainties together.
I have over 15 years' experience of direct Counselling work as well as significant experience across the fields of Homelessness and Addictions with experience in Teaching, Training and Managing services, including a BACP Accredited Counselling Service.
How I work...what to expect from your first session?:
I offer an Integrated approach to counselling which means that I draw on different counselling theories in my work as appropriate to the client and/or issues that they present with.
One of the benefits of such an approach is that I can be flexible in what I offer clients; if the way we are working together doesn't feel like its addressing your reasons for attending counselling, I can suggest alternative ways of working together.
When we first meet it will be important to establish whether we both feel we are able to work together to achieve the outcomes you would like from attending counselling. We will use our first session to explore this together by talking about what has prompted you to seek out a counselling service, what you hope counselling will help you with and in what ways the counselling service I offer meets these expectations.
Above all, we need to establish whether we, and especially you, feel that we can have a good working relationship; the starting point from which we can look together at addressing whatever concerns you wish to bring to counselling.
