BEE YOU COUNSELLING
My name is Tina and I am a qualified counsellor based in Dromore, Co Down.
I am an independent counsellor providing a modern approach to counselling.
I will greet you with a smile and a cup of tea and during our assessment session we will start to understand what is causing you distress.
I am accredited with the national Counselling Society.
Quite simply I put you and your needs first. Following our initial assessment I work with my clients to choose the right counselling model and techniques to support the goals you wish to achieve.
I have been working with people in distress since 1987.
I have significant experience of dealing within the areas of domestic abuse, sexual abuse, bullying at work and persons from the LGBTQ community.
I specialise in three main areas namely:
Counselling people experiencing depression or panic/anxiety.
Counselling senior managers who more and more frequently struggle to manage the demands of the workplace. Counselling can help people understand these conflicts and achieve a greater work life balance.
Counselling to young people aged between 16-19. Life at this age can be tough young people are emerging from their crylisis to become great young adults, but sometimes this change can be tough and I am committed to helping them mange this difficult stage of their development
As a counsellor I believe the therapeutic relationship formed with my clients is the basis to their conditions improving.
I am primarily based in the Dromore, Banbridge, Lisburn area. However our telephone and on line-services mean distance is no barrier to accessing our counselling services.
My name is Cathy. I am a qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), working within their Ethical Framework and Guidelines. I am trained in the therapeutic models of Person Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural therapy and work from an Integrative approach as this allows me to tailor the therapy to my clients own individual needs.
In using an integrative approach to counselling practice I am able to work with my clients in an in-depth way on common life problems, immediate distress and challenges. Additionally, I have experience in working with mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, low self esteem, panic attacks, isolation, bereavement, grief, suicidal ideation's, family problems, gender and sexual identity.
In my previous career I gained extensive experience working in Banking and Human Resources, training with The Chartered Institute of Personal Development (C.I.P.D) . I am familiar with work related stress and anxiety, training, mentoring, development, appraisals, anger management and job loss.
I have been working within the volunteer sector for 3 years now as a Community Champion and Counsellor for Creative Caring Communities Project (CLARE CIC). I have recognised a need for more intensive counselling support for the elderly and have a wealth of experience in working with the older adult. I am also a trained Bereavement Support Volunteer with CRUSE Bereavement Care.
I have also gained considerable knowledge working as a school counsellor with young people 16-19yrs, including those with ASD, behavioural problems, Social Anxiety, Gender Dysphoria and Sexual Identity, by using psycho-educational tools and techniques I have been able to support the young people I have met to engage fully with their lives.
For me the most important part of counselling is the therapeutic relationship and I aim to provide my clients with a safe, non judgemental, accepting, trusting environment and consider it a privilege to work with my clients through our therapeutic alliance. I continue to further my knowledge through ongoing training and continue to develop as a counsellor.
