Yvonne Mc Grory Reader. MBACP
Welcome to my profile, I am a counsellor, trained in person centred therapy, I have a holistic approach to work, which means you are the expert of your life and I am here to support you. Life can be difficult at times and sometimes we need someone to be there for us. I can offer a safe, non judgemental space for you to explore the issues you find yourself facing at this time.
Counselling can be a daunting idea, what brought you here? Are you feeling lost? Unhappy? Sad? Have you a feeling of isolation or loneliness? I work to help people explore what issues they are going through, I offer a safe space, to be safe, heard, emotionally held. You have taken the first step, to give yourself the space to get support for whatever you're experiencing. How brave are you!
Let me tell you a bit about me, I have like said above trained in person centred therapy, I also integrate elements of CBT in my work, I have worked in a medical practice and worked with agencies throughout the northwest, including Derry well women's group and Cruse Bereavement.
I have worked with people from all walks of life, those experiencing depression, grief, loss, trauma, to name but a few.
I work with women and men, all adult age groups and ethnic backgrounds. I love my work and find it so fulfilling and rewarding.
I work face to face in a beautiful counselling premises in the heart of Derry, I endeavour to work around the clients needs (day/time) so it suits you, the client.
Depression/anxiety can be a very lonely place, we work to find out your needs/ self care requirements to promote a sense of wellbeing, to enhance your self worth.
Sleep issues can manifest into so much more, if you're not sleeping this can have a serious knock on affect to your wellbeing, I work with people to find out the cause of the sleeplessness and work to help you help yourself with sleep hygiene techniques.
