Trish is also a counselling supervisor for therapists and holds accredited status as a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). She works with adults and young people over the age of 13.
Trish works using a Person-Centred approach. This means she values the client for who they are and provides a warm and compassionate space where they can feel safe to explore and make sense of their experiences and responses to them. Trish believes that the client-counsellor relationship is paramount in enabling the client to feel heard and understood so they can move forward.
A wealth of experience working in children’s services in the Midlands led Trish to work as a School Counsellor as well as for a charity providing counselling to young people who had suffered trauma and abuse. Her experience in working with adults began over 20 years ago as a bereavement counsellor and then she went on to gain experience in a Women’s Centre and has spent many years working in private practice.
Further training as well as experience working overseas has developed Trish’s skills in working with clients from a variety of backgrounds and presenting with issues including anxiety, depression, work-related stress, cultural issues, family and relationship breakdown, eating issues, self-harm, anger and identity issues.
