Counselling & Bereavement Services
A Warm Welcome To SPACE
Many therapists will give lots of information about what Counselling is, the different theories and approaches and about the process and experience of Counselling. The truth is, the experience of Counselling is different for everyone, and no two therapists are the same.
What’s really important for successful therapy is a good, trusting relationship with your therapist and a willingness to give it a go.
This is where you can start to make a difference.
I am a qualified Psychologist, Counsellor and Psychotherapist and a Registered Member of the BACP.
I have over 14 years of experience working with adults, families, children and young people in a variety of settings. My relevant qualifications and training include BA/BSc (hons) Psychology and Criminology; Diploma Person Centred and Existential Counselling. Additional training includes: Social Psychology, Critical Perspectives of self and others, Bereavement and loss, Suicide and traumatic deaths and Supervision.
I am an experienced and trained Bereavement Counsellor supporting children and families who are either facing a serious illness in their lives, or who have been bereaved. Through this work I also facilitate bereavement groups for all members of the family.
I work within the ethical guidelines set out within the BACP and have a current enhanced DBS certificate. All work is therapeutically and professionally supervised according to BACP regulation.
My approach to Counselling is a collaborative one. Which means we work together to understand your difficulties and find your way forward.
I have a range of theories and ideas that I draw from and I offer you a supportive, friendly and honest relationship to work from.
Working with me will give you an opportunity to talk in a safe and confidential space, someone to listen without judgement and who will treat you respectfully.
I think Counselling is a great opportunity for everyone to explore thinking, emotions, behaviour and ways of relating to others and can truly offer you an opportunity for change if you want it.
