About Counselling (including fees) with Heather Burkinshaw
Counselling helps to deal with issues in a safe, secure, confidential space and will help get control back in your life. Reaching out to contact a counsellor can seem to be most difficult, but having done that you will be on the way to help.
What Conditions Can it Help?
Counselling (therapeutic counselling) helps to explore feelings and offers a client a regular space and time talking to a counsellor about a particular issue or difficulty that is distressing to them, such as stress, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, relationship issues, job loss, anger management or bereavement.
In counselling the client tells the counsellor as much or as little as they want. It is the counsellor’s role to listen to the client and help them explore their thoughts and feelings, in a confidential, non-judgemental environment.
What Benefits can be Expected?
Counselling will help the client restore the natural balance and rhythm in their lives by ordering their issues and problems until they no longer present as a problem. The "client finds the way through".
Play is the child's natural medium for self_expression - Virginia Axeline
Therapeutic Play Therapy or Therapeutic Play is a method of helping / counselling children with behavioural and / or emotional problems, such as anxiety, stress, depression to heal themselves. Play is the childs natural medium of self expression – it’s essential for child development and play therapy gives a child the opportunity to play out their feelings and problems with a therapeutic objective in a safe secure, confidential environment.
COUNSELLING via Zoom (similar)
Zoom is an ideal medium to use when the client perhaps has difficulty with new situations, because of anxiety around leaving their home. Sometimes people who live in different parts of the country or world would like to become a client because of an expertise that I have, or because they want to see a counsellor outside their area. Online counselling is extremely helpful at the moment due to the Covid-19 restrictions.
Clinical supervision is offered to counsellors, and anyone working in helping professions such as nurses, social workers, employment advisers, etc to ensure that they are working ethically, keeping themselves and their clients / patients safe.
