Hello, my name is Shelly welcome to my profile, I am a counsellor based in Basildon.
I am an integrative counsellor which means that I adapt my approach based on the clients needs. Empathy is at the core of any approach I use and I use a range of therapeutic techniques to assist my client's. This is to help client's find solutions to their problems and increase their self awareness. Sessions are client led and allow clients to explore/discuss anything they choose. The modality I use will depend on the individual client as the therapy is tailored for them however I do use techniques from Person-Centred Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Our first session will be to discuss what brings you to therapy and what you hope to achieve we can then put together a working agreement. This will enable us to make the best use of our time together.
Types of Counselling
I provide face to face counselling in Basildon. I also provide online counselling via Zoom or FaceTime which is Available for £40.00. A free 15 minute online or telephone assessment is available.
