Yvonne Shields MBACP
Royal Wootton Bassett
Making the decision to seek counselling can be daunting and it is especially important that you choose a therapist you feel comfortable and able to work with. I aim to provide you with a safe, grounded, non-judgemental space where you can talk about what has led you to counselling.
I am an experienced therapist working in Royal Wootton Bassett offering evening appointments. To enable you to get a sense of whether counselling is right for you and to discuss what you wish to achieve from counselling, I charge a half price fee for your first session. This also gives us the opportunity to get to know each other a little and give you a sense of whether you feel I am the right counsellor for you.
My counselling background is Humanistic; I work mostly within the Person Centred Counselling Model, but am able to utilise a range of other counselling models.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have experience of working with a wide range of clients, and have counselled with several charities, latterly a Carers charity. I have worked for many years with military families and am acutely aware of the stresses and uniqueness of military life.
I am a fully qualified therapist and am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am committed to continuing my professional development and adhere to the standards of the BACP's Ethical Framework.
I hold a current Disclosure and Baring Service enhanced certificate and am fully insured.
