About me and my therapy practice

BACP Senior Accredited, M.A.Couns, Dip Couns, IAPT compliant counsellor/supervisor.Cert PCAT (Art Therapy skills)

https://www.theresaderbyshirecounselling.com/

I am a senior accredited counsellor\psychotherapist with over thirty years experience of working in the NHS, private and voluntary sector. I am highly experienced in working with people from a vast array of backgrounds and difficulties offering both short term counselling and longer term psychotherapy. I have a strong background in mental health initially training as a mental health nurse. I offer a free 30 minute introductory meeting with no obligation to return, for us to decide if I am the right therapist for you.

How I work. 

I am an integrative therapist meaning that I draw from several models of counselling\psychotherapy in which I have trained in over the years, to meet clients specific needs. Each person is different , therefore no one therapy suits every individual . My underlying philosophy is person centred, meaning that I offer a warm non-judgemental, empathic and honest relationship which encourages clients to explore and make sense of difficult feelings and experiences which then helps them develop greater insight into the issues they bring and discover new ways of dealing with them.

My aim is to listen and work in such a way that offers understanding support and integrity. Clients I have seen have experienced improvements in their relationships with others and have been able to understand their feelings better. They have gained more self confidence and self esteem. It can be quite difficult to talk about feelings to those closest to us . Some clients have spoken about things in sessions that they have never shared with anyone else.
