About the Counsellor

Hi. My name is Denise and I am a qualified person-centred counsellor. Having studied several orientations, I work mostly with the person-centred approach. With twenty years of counselling practice, my experiences to date have allowed me to develop a good knowledge of personal relationships, bereavement, abuse, stress, disability, hearing loss and profound deafness, communication difficulties and also bereavement (plus caring for terminally ill patients).

I have also just recently (December 2016) upgraded my knowledge of counselling, to be able to be there for those who have lost a beloved pet.  Not everyone understands the grief experienced when an animal friend dies and lack of others’ understanding leaves the person grieving with no-one to turn to.

My counselling experience includes:-

John Richardson trust – voluntary work

British Deaf Association – paid employment

James Cook Hospital (staff counsellor) – both voluntary and paid employment

Private work with GPs and hospitals

Private clients (both face to face and over the phone).

Relevant Qualifications Held – diploma in humanistic counselling / diploma in health and social care / diploma in pet bereavement counselling / up-to-date police check / stage III British Sign Language / disability awareness training + working experience / dysphasia support training + experience / trained mediator + experience.
