Rising Phoenix Counselling – Rising above problems, distress and pain.
As Maya Angelou quoted: “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you”.
I am here to listen, guide, help, support and shine light on whatever may be the cause of your distress so that you feel empowered, understood, valued and validated and can gain a deeper awareness and learn to tackle life difficulties by gaining the knowledge and tools to alleviate distress.
Resolution is possible, whether what is troubling you is due to a current event such as a recent loss or past events stemming as far as childhood.
I will help you on that journey of self-discovery, rebirth and self-empowerment.
I am a professional integrative Psychotherapist and counsellor who uses the integral approach to suit the needs of all individual clients.
I believe that a lot of our distresses are caused by conditions of worth, whether from society, culture, media or people in our lives.
My counselling journey started as a phone counsellor for a rape crisis.
My own life experiences have made it possible for me to relate to clients on a number of levels and issues. It is what gave me the passion to want to make a difference, having taken my own journey into healing.
I have a PGCE (teaching qualification) and love to enlighten and empower others through knowledge, experience and empathy. I have also taught the CPCAB counselling course, Level 2 Introduction to Counselling.
I have given a presentation for the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) – Working with Trauma in Health care settings on the subject of Domestic Violence.
I have an updated DBS and insurance and also a member of the BACP.
I’ve helped my clients break through obstacles that seem to be holding them back in life.
Life’s too short to be unhappy, unsure, or unfulfilled.
Get in touch, I’d love to help.
“Trauma… does not disappear if it is not validated. When it is ignored or invalidated the silent screams continue internally heard only by the one held captive’.
