About me and my therapy practice

I am a registered and accredited psychotherapist, counsellor and supervisor working in private practice with individuals. I have worked in a variety of settings; in the last 15 years I have worked predominantly in the NHS as a senior therapist and service lead for a busy counselling service, whilst running a small private practice. The balance has now shifted, allowing me to work independently, although I do still undertake work within the NHS and for occupational health settings. 

I work with those who are experiencing a broad range of emotional issues and life challenges; perhaps feeling disconnected or overwhelmed with life. This may involve anxiety and depression, relationship difficulties, physical health, stress,  bereavement or personal development. Issues may be within a workplace, such as work-related stress. 

I have a particular interest in bereavement and work related issues but I am interested in all aspects of life and offer a compassionate and empathic space in which you are able to reflect on and explore issues which are causing difficulty for you; perhaps affecting daily life, and work with you to support and consider possible solutions that can help you to move forwards, and better understand how you feel and why. 

Understanding ourselves develops confidence and greater ability to make sense of our own world and the decisions that we make.  

Practice description

I am able to offer sessions online via Zoom, in-person or by telephone.

We can discuss the contact method that is most convenient for you.

My first session

Please make first contact with me by email or telephone and we can discuss why you wish to access counselling.

Email: sheilaallentherapy@gmail.com

We can agree our future contact method and arrange a first appointment where you will be able to tell me more about yourself and the issues which you are facing, to enable me to better understand you and your situation.  We will be able to discuss what you feel you would like to gain from therapy.

You may decide from this to take time to consider whether you wish to continue with counselling, or you may wish to make a further appointment immediately. If I feel that you would be better supported by a different kind of therapy and a different therapist, we will be able to discuss this to ensure that the support you receive is the most appropriate to support your needs. 

Individuals can make contact for themselves, or be referred by GP's, Employers, Employee Assistance Programmes or Occupational Health settings.

About me and my therapy practice

I provide supervision in a safe, supportive and professional environment in which client work, exploration of ethical issues and  professional development forms the structure of our professional relationship. 

I believe that supervision should provide the core values of respect, honesty, compassion and collaboration, as we provide for our own clients, enabling us to reflect on our work and explore our own processing. 

Developing, through a relational approach, an open, creative and explorative supervision relationship is vital to support discussion of practice related difficulties and issues. Space to reflect upon client work and role is important to enable growth and development in practice with appropriate feedback and discussion through supervision. 

As working with my own clients, working with you in supervision as the ‘whole person’ is important to me; to be able to explore and support your awareness of issues which may arise which impact on your work as a therapist.
