My name is Chrissie and I am a BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) registered Counsellor. I am a reflective and caring person and my aim is always to listen and build honest relationships. I believe in offering a relationship where trust can be built and authenticity, not where judgement can exist. I do not consider myself a fixer of problems but someone of support who can help facilitate change or decision making. I endeavour to be honest and empathic and I work within the BACP ethical framework at all times.
I trained at the University of Surrey completing my Degree in Psychodynamic Counselling. Prior to this I qualified in both Person centred and Psychodynamic Counselling.
I have been working as a Counsellor within the community and voluntary sector for many years, and have experience in working with many varied people with their own unique difficulties.
Even though I have experience working with many varied issues, I aim to improve my working practice with continuous professional development through specific workshops or literature. I am also supervised which means another Counsellor and I will meet in order to manage and maintain good professional care.
As a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), I work within the ethical framework of good practice, with a commitment to offering a high standard of professional therapeutic care.
