Hi I'm Chrissie and I am a therapist who believes that we all have the ability to find the answer for ourselves, but sometimes we get stuck and need help.
Working together we can find ways to overcome your obstacles and improve your life by exploring your inner thoughts, feelings, emotions and experiences, and learning how to have a better understanding of them.
I provide a confidential, safe space where you can feel heard, understood and respected without feeling judged.
A space to explore your concerns, issues, dilemmas. Time for yourself, where you are important without having to worry about others.
I will work with you at your pace, ensuring your autonomy throughout the time we have together to ensure you are happy with the outcome.
As a registered member of the National counselling Society (NCS), I work within set guidelines of a governing body that is an accredited member of the Professional Standards Authority. I undertake regular continuous professional development workshops and keep up to date with the latest research and developments in the counselling and psychotherapy sector.
I have worked in counselling practices since 2015, working with clients from late teens to retirement age. I have experience in working with clients who have relationship issues, bereavement issues, attachment issues and those who are affected by anxiety, panic attacks, fear, anger, rage, depression, low self-esteem, low self-confidence and disability / health issues. I also work with clients who have experienced sexual and/or physical abuse, domestic violence and I have experience in using the “rewind” technique for people with traumatic memories.
Having Experience of living with a physical disability myself and the challenges that brings, working with others that live with disabilities is something that is close to my heart. Supporting others with PIP assessments, discrimination at work, anxiety and depression, isolation and socialising difficulties, health concerns to name a few.
I have previously worked as a counsellor at The University of Leicester, and volunteered as a counsellor at Cruse bereavement care and Mosaic disability service for three years.
Starting counselling can be scary. By reading my profile you have already taken the first steps; the next step when you are ready, is to contact me to book an appointment.
I work on an individual basis at locations near the city centre LE1 area of Leicester. I can also provide online sessions via Zoom.
To arrange your first session please email, call or text. We can discuss your needs and arrange a suitable time to meet.
I believe that therapy should be available for all, so offer discounted sessions for therapy students and those on low income benefits.
