My name is Erica and I am a fully qualified and insured counsellor. I am registered with the BACP (British Association of Counselling Psychotherapists) and adhere to their code of ethics. I have completed their Certificate of Proficiency enabling me to become a registrant on the BACP register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I am here to offer support with a wide range of problems and have experience of helping clients with depression, anxiety, bereavement and relationship/emotional difficulties.I also have specific training and experience of working with clients who have experienced physical or sexual abuse. I have completed a couple counselling course enabling me to work with couples.
As an integrative counsellor, I am trained in Person-centred (an empathic, warm, positive theory that believes in the ability of everyone to grow and develop) and Psychodynamic theory (exploring how the past and past attachments affect us today). I also use Transactional Analysis (a theory that helps us understand ourselves, our personalities and how we interact together). This enables me to be flexible as a counsellor and to work with you in a way that best suits and meets your needs.
My fees for individual clients are £40 per hour and all contact is completely confidential.
