About me and my therapy practice
I am qualified as a person-centred counsellor and my role during the counselling session is to share your world with you, to feel how it is to be you and to work alongside you without judgement. I bring a wealth of lifetime knowledge and in-depth counselling experience, with a good understanding of disability, hearing loss and deafness, as well as knowledge of Asperger's and bereavment.
I have been working as a qualified person-centred counsellor for twenty two years and have a wealth of knowledge and experience in many difficulties in life (divorce, unemployment, death (a bereavement counsellor in a hospice), disability, illness, Asperger’s syndrome, domestic abuse, loneliness, dementia, a knowledge of many disabilties and, in particular, hearing loss and deafness, having spent thirty eight years working in the deaf community in many different roles, including sign language communicator, lipspeaker and counsellor). I am hearing and sign to stage III level. I am also trained as a level 2 lipspeaker, for those with hearing loss who prefer to read lips to signing.
My first session
The first (and free) session can be a short (fifteen minutes or so)' getting to know' introductory call, allowing us to see if we feel well-matched for the purpose of counselling. A good counsellor will know how to present themselves to a client. In this case, ‘presenting’ means the overall impression that the counsellor will offer of themselves to the client in all sessions.
