About me and my therapy practice
Hi, my name is Abbie Fearn, I am a BACP qualified Person-Centred counsellor and director of Oak Park counselling services. I understand from personal experience that finding a counsellor can be difficult and may even feel over-whelming. However, I would like to reassure you that, there is always help and support available that is right for you.
As a person-centred therapist, I provide an environment that is free from judgement and assumption and instead a place that is safe, confidential and empathic. It is my belief that offering this environment will help you explore any issues you are facing and together, we can work through those issues and establish a sense of empowerment and positive mental well-being. I have had the honour of working with the most incredible clients and have been privileged enough to see them grow and become the version of themselves they desire to be. I offer support in such issues as anxiety, abuse, bereavement including loss of self, low self-esteem, hoarding, alcohol and substance misuse, relationship issues and many more.
During the first session, we can discuss the reasons that brought you to therapy and how you are feeling and experiencing your own emotions in the here and now. Within the first session, I will explain about confidentiality, including your rights as a client and how I work as a therapist. We will jointly establish a working agreement, setting out preferred methods of communication and your expectations of therapy. What we discuss in the sessions is down to you. They are your sessions and I will work at a pace that suits you. There are no right or wrong answers in therapy, it is about you and your experiencing of an event/situation.
