Counselling is a talking therapy that allows people to discuss their difficulties in a safe and confidential space. A counsellor listens and works with the client at their own pace. Counsellors do not give advice but instead may offer interpretations and guidance to help clients identify any root causes or ways of thinking, and can work with them to create healthier patterns.
My Counselling Work
I am currently studying at level 4 of the CPCAB Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling Course. I also work closely with Westmeria Counselling Service, running their social media and fundraising campaigns. Through this work I am able to offer counselling information, exercises and blogs through both my website and theirs.
Westmeria Counselling is a charity offering emotional support in Bromley. They have 18 counsellors who provide a safe, confidential space to individuals experiencing difficulties. Counselling can often be expensive and NHS waiting lists are extremely long, that’s why they offer up to 24 sessions on a donation only basis, so that more people can get the help they need. For more information please visit www.westmeriacounselling.co.uk. They also offer schemes for businesses who are looking to encourage mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
