Hi, my name is Bethany and I am here to help you with whatever difficulties you are going through. I am a qualified, experienced and BACP registered counsellor working in the Staffordshire area. I can offer you a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space in which you can be free to talk openly and honestly about what you are experiencing, and receive professional insight, awareness and support to come to terms with the past, be more in control of the present and have hope for the future.
If you are looking to take that first step in speaking to a counsellor then be assured that you will receive a friendly and welcoming approach from me, so please get in contact and we can discuss your requirements in confidence. I also offer a discounted rate for the first session so that you can make an informed decision about whether you would like to work with me. I work from a comfortable counselling room in my home, but can offer home visits.
I offer Person-Centred Counselling which firmly believes in the therapeutic relationship between the client and counsellor, and ‘has respect for each individual, for the individual’s capacity and right to self-direction, and for the worth and significance of each individual.’ (Rogers, C., Client-Centred Therapy, p20-22). I will not tell you what to do, as this over-rides your right to choose what’s best for you.
I also have knowledge and experience of using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Transactional Analysis and can integrate this within the counselling session if we both agree that it will be helpful. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy predominantly concentrates on exploring and challenging unhelpful thoughts and beliefs that you have about yourself, others and the world in which you live, and how this impacts on the way you live life and relate to others. Transactional Analysis sheds light on the ways in which we communicate and relate to others.
My qualifications include a Level 5 Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and a British Psychological Society Approved Certificate in Third Wave Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which incorporates therapies such as: Compassion-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness.
Tuesday, Thursday & Friday: 9am - 5pm
