Cheryl Richardson “People start to heal the moment they feel heard”

Cheryl Richardson

Are you…

feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and a bit lost?

Counselling offers you a safe space and dedicated time to be heard in a calm and supportive environment. You will not be judged. My approach is open and honest, where together we explore the issues that are distressing you. I am a qualified and insured Pluralistic counsellor and I specialise in anxiety, bereavement and loss, stress and burnout and health related issues.

What is Pluralistic counselling?

This approach means that I am able to adapt counselling to you, collaborate with you and consider your preferences. Different people need different things at different times from their therapy. Together we will find a way of working that suits your personality, values and goals. At its core my approach is non-judgmental, empathetic and hopeful. I believe that every individual has the capacity to heal and can be empowered to discover solutions to issues in a supportive environment.

As a Pluralistic counsellor I am able to integrate ways of working and use different counselling approaches. This includes person-centred, psycho-dynamic, cognitive behavioural and acceptance and commitment therapy. If I person is interested I utilize the body during sessions and include mindfulness, knowledge on the impact of stress on the body and polyvagal theory as part of this. I also have an interest in trauma and work in a trauma informed way.

Where do I start?

and what to expect?

Firstly, I offer a free 20 minute chat for you to share briefly what has bought you to counselling, where I can answer any questions and see if what I offer suits your needs.

If you would like to proceed we will arrange an appointment at a time that suits you. At this point I will send you a copy of my counselling contract which ‘sets the scene’ for counselling. Please read this over prior to your first sessions.

At your first appointment you will have time to share what has brought you here. You may wish to discuss what is causing you worry or distress; or you may have physical problems that you would like help and advice with. It is useful to get a sense of what you would like to change or achieve.

As I offer several ways of helping you (a menu if you like) together we will decide where may be best to start and come up with a plan that we will re-visit regularly.

Sessions can be weekly, every other week or monthly, short or long-term and for as long as you find them useful.
