About me and my therapy practice

I offer professional, experienced counselling & coaching in Wellington, for individuals, young people & couples. I work in a compassionate and creative way, offering a safe and non-judgemental space to explore issues that you are facing.


ABOUT ME

I am frequently told by clients that I am easy to talk to; that they can tell me anything without feeling judged; that they feel safe with me and not ashamed.

I help people with depression, anxiety, panic, anger, suicidal thoughts, gender and sexuality issues, bereavement, family problems, relationship issues, abuse, stress, addiction, obsessive thoughts, life changes and many more.

I have an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling, accredited by the BACP, and a Certificate in Transactional Analysis. I work in different ways combining several approaches to therapy. My approach is based on the values of the Person Centred Approach (which holds the provision of an empowering environment, non-judgemental and empathetic as imperative for the therapeutic process) and Transactional Analysis (which provides some understanding of ourselves and repeating patterns of behaviour). Counselling can help you to see things differently, decide if and how you want to change and how to cope now.

I work as a counsellor in schools, both primary and secondary, and have a wide range of experience. I am also a qualified teacher and have taught in schools. This gives me insight into the challenges and stresses of modern teaching.

I am also a professional coach (business, personal and public speaking) and can draw upon these skills, when appropriate, as well, if you so desire.

Practice description

Be Heard Counselling - to help you through current issues, past experiences and enhance your future, in Wellington, Somerset.

During the Coronavirus crisis all on my work will be online. I work through the online video system Zoom and can also offer telephone.

I offer professional, experienced counselling and coaching for individuals, couples, young people, employers and employees. Please call me on 07773 350459 to discuss how I can help.

If you are finding life difficult, counselling can help, whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, anger, obsessive thoughts, panic, stress, low self-esteem, confidence, your relationships, grief or something else.  Counselling is not just about helping you solve problems its about helping you make positive changes that enhance your life.

I am an experienced counsellor and full member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, the BACP. I am registered with the BACPs Voluntary Register of Counsellors and follow the BACP Code of Ethics. I aim to provide a non-judgemental, confidential space, where you can feel safe to explore things about yourself and any problems you may be facing. I work with adults, couples and young adults.

The counsellor/client relationship is unique, respectful, valuing and empowering. Being listened to and heard can really help you to understand issues you are facing in your life, enable you to find inner resources and make positive change.

I offer weekly counselling appointments, in the day and evening. I can work with you towards short-term goals and longer term psychological exploration and change.
