Hi I'm Dymphna.
I'm a qualified counsellor
As a counsellor I have experience of working with adults with a wide variety of problems including loss, depression, anxiety, guilt, anger and relationship issues.
I obtained a certificate in working with trauma after qualifying. Many of us have suffered trauma at some point in our lives. The symptoms are complex and the impact can be devastating. But finding a way through is well worth it.
I am also a qualified Occupational Therapist (OT), which means that I am used to working with people to enable them to achieve their life goals.
My two professions compliment each other. As an OT I am used to working in a very practical way with my patients. As a counsellor I work in a deeper way, looking at what is behind the behaviour, feelings and thoughts of my clients. In both roles I am supporting my client to reach their potential.
I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I trained at the Wealden Institute for 4 years, in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy. I have a masters level Diploma in Psychotherapuetic Counselling.
If you are struggling, I may be able to help.
