About me and my therapy practice
At Silver Moon Counselling, I offer Person Centred Therapy - a Humanistic Approach that deals with the ways in which a person consciously views themselves. I am client-led and do not offer you advice, but trust that the relationship we develop together will allow you to find what you need.
I offer therapy to Adults, Young People and Children (aged 5 years plus) from my private therapy room and am comfortable working in a variety of ways. I can use creative media to help explore and find a way for you to explore your inner world and how this is impacting you.
I have recently qualified in Animal Assisted Therapy and at this time I work with Charlie and Rex - 2 animal assisted Guinea Pigs who are doing amazing work with a variety of clients.
I am also completing my Level 6 in Counselling Supervision - if this is something which would interest you, please let me know.
There are any number of reasons for entering counselling and therapy, including low self-esteem, a lack of self-reliance and resistance to change and new experiences. These can be experienced by adults, children or young people. The person centred approach recognises that our relationships (work or home) and the environment in which we live, can impact how we feel and behave, so I offer therapy in a neutral and comfortable setting where you can feel at ease, making you open to learning about yourself.
Working together, I can offer you:
Better awareness and understanding of your 'self' and who you are.
Increased awareness and understanding around your defenses, your coping strategies, insecurity and guilt.
The opportunity and ability to trust you and the decisions you make.
Healthier, more positive relationships, either personal or professional.
Improvement in how you express you as a person and verbalize your needs to others.
A genuine, healthy and balanced sense of change.
This can happen in your own time.
I have a child friendly therapy room and a waiting area outside. I use sand, stones, paint, figures, puppets and lots more. Any client I work with can choose to access any of this.
Children and Young Person Counselling
Animal Assisted Therapy*
This is via:
Face to Face counselling
Home visits, subject to availability*
* I would discuss the suitability of this type of support, prior to you engaging in counselling.
My first session
Our first session would always take the form of an assessment where I would gather personal information from you and the issues/concerns you are bringing to counselling. We would discuss your hopes and expectations and the formal side of our counselling contract. This is all conducted in a sensitive way in order to ensure safety and ethical practice.
With Children and Young People, I first meet with the parent/carer to complete a parent/carer assessment and obtain written consent to support the child/young person.
